Hats are Essential for Homeless

Thank you Erika H for your thoughtful donation of knitted hats.  Folks I've edited this picture trying to get the colors to show, but it didn't work very well.  Black and Dark Navy are the colors.  These hats are nice and large and heavy and no doubt will be used for those folks living out in the elements where they often have to wear two hats to ward off the elements.  Nicely done Erika.  Please keep up the good work.  Folks if you click to enlarge the picture you can see the nice detail, particularly in the lower right hat of the brim area.

Look forward to seeing you here often on Bridge and Beyond, Erika.

*Please include a note with your donation folks with your email, saves me trying to figure out whom you are in order to let you know the mail arrived safe and sound.
**Remember to avoid open stitches where you can put your finger through (v stitches, mile a minute, and granny style type stitches aren't as warm as solid stitches.
***Remember to avoid light colors, pastels, whites, and lots of bold colors as the darker colors serve a wider range of the population we strive to serve
****Please remember to tag hats, slippers, and mittens with size.

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?
