Crocheted Donations for the Homeless

 Time to wash up!  Pictured here are cotton washcloths crocheted by our good friend Diana K.  LOTS of them.  Cotton washcloths have several uses and are greatly appreciated by many.  They are donated to folks as they enter a shelter, as they leave the shelters for their permanent housing situation, and for the folks living out in the elements.  They can be used as personal cotton washcloths and or dishcloths.
 Diana has been very busy, as you can see she's also crocheted matching hats and scarves in a variety of colors.  I LOVE the color choices Diana, something appropriate for both the men and the women.  The Chevron style scarf is really very nice.  Using solid colors the texture shows up so well.
And as you can see, the hats have a nice thick brim for added warmth.  Hats with brims are also nice for heads of varying sizes.  Many thanks Diana for your generosity and please keep up the good work.

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?
