Crocheted Hats from Louisiana Warm Those in Need in Ohio

Thank you Sandie P for your thoughful donation of 3 crocheted hats, and for your long term and on going support of Bridge and Beyond.  The hats are navy, not purple, but sometimes those two colors just don't show up right in photo's...I've never known why, they just don't, at least not for me.  Sandie hails from the warm state of Louisiana, where she's often enjoying sunshine as she thinks about those in cold Ohio in need of help.  I think that's pretty special.  It's so easy when we're comfortable to forget others aren't.

Many thanks Sandie, please keep up the good work.  And a second thank you for tagging your hats with size, much appreciated.

**Folks remember darker solids work best for men, women, and children.  Solids often blend in better, and show less dirt then pastels, and bright colors who have limited ability if any to do laundry.  Those living out in the elements really prefer the dark solids, as they don't like to call attention to themselves in bold, or bright colors and designs.**

Where are You and Your Yarn From?

I'm trying to identify where everyone is from, partially for fun. Take a look at the map. Also, believe it will aid me in cases where we have several people with the same name. Please look at the lists of bloggers and non bloggers and see if I have the state you hail from. If not, please leave a comment and let me know.

Additionally, we've had help from Scotland, England, Germany Puerto Rico, Canada, and France! They don't appear on the map, but their help is still greatly appreciated.

Where The People Who Donate Come From, is your state represented?
