Crocheted Scarves for the Homeless

 More crocheted items from Jane Burmeister and friends, The Sullivan Group.  Lots of scarves for the ladies, as well as a couple of cowls/neck warmers of different styles.
 You might remember a previous post with pictures from this group.  As I understand it they get together at work and crochet.  I'm still in need of contact from Jane or someone in the group and am hopeful they'll see the post, or one of the many notices here on the blog, the facebook group and or twitter.  Would love to know how many people where involved in the project.
The little yellow hat will help keep a child warm, while these scarves will aid the ladies at the shelters.  Many thanks Sullivan Group/Jane Burmeister.

    Jane,You and your group are very talented and these look like they are nice and warm.Absolutely beautiful. I love all of the scarves and especially the Purple and blue. They.look difficult but I might even be able to master it Jane if you would be so kind as to let us know what the pattern is. If you can send it to Sandy I am sure she would love to add it to the patterns she prints. The ladies are going to love these. Thank you so much for your support of the Ohio Homeless.

  2. Look at all the lovely scarves! Very nice Jane and the Sullivan Group.

  3. Jane, the scarves you and your group have made are beautiful. They will warm a lot of necks and bodies. Thank you all for donating to our central Ohio homeless.

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?
