Mittens, Mittens....yippee I'm clapping for mittens.  Our Dear Friend, Sandra R from Florida's done it again.  She makes such awesome mittens.  AND hats...but you all know I get doubly excited when we get mittens.  If only she could sit beside us all and teach us how to make them.  Lots of different colors and lots of different sizes in both hats and mittens to warm lots of folks in need.
As always Sandra, your work is so much appreciated.  Also extra thanks for tagging your hats and mittens with size.  You Rock!

Please keep up the good work Sandra.

  3. Oh, look at all the wonderful mittens and hats that you made Sandra. Lots of warm hands and heads. It is 9 degress here in MI with a wind chill of -8. I feel sorry for the homeless and the stray animals out in this cold. I am busy with a scarf. Hope to get it done by next week. I know warm items are needed so much in this cold weather we have now.

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?
