Mittens and Hats Help the Homeless

Thank you Sally for this awesome donation of knitted mittens and hats.  Extra thanks for tagging each item with size, and for including hand warmers.  I get very jazzed whenever we receive mittens, they are so essential to warmth, and an item hard for many of us to make so.........way to go Sally B.

Please keep up the good work Sally and I know how much we all appreciate you and your efforts.

Reminders:
*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

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?
