2 Dozen Crocheted Hats Donated to Warm Homeless

Thank you Patty C from Ohio for this thoughtful and generous donation of 2 dozen crocheted hats.  Nice  color combinations, love all the black and the dark burgundy's especially.  2 dozen more happy warm heads folks, how great is that.  In my opinion, hats and socks are the two most important items needed to try and stay warm.  This  past weekend I sat in the cold rain at The Ohio State footgame when we lost to Michigan State and I can tell from first hand experience..........those were the 2 areas that bothered me most.  My feet got wet and my ears were cold.  I kept pulling the hood tighter and stamping my feet.

We've had several mornings of 24 and 26 degree temperatures this week......folks, that's cold.  I hope you're all staying busy with your knitting needles, crochet hooks, and yarn.  The homeless need us.

Thank you Patty!

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?
