Crocheted Ladies Hats Help Warm those in Need

Thank you Barbara F for this awesome donation of ladies hats!  Several different styles here folks, do click to enlarge the picture so you can see the styles.  Special thanks for tagging the hats with size, so very much appreciated by many people.

 Folks when you click to enlarge, please notice what Barbara used to tag these has.  She's simply used colored paper, cut in circles and tied the tags on with yarn.  I wanted to point this out, as some folks have asked how.  Some purchase the little white tags that have string, that works great too.  Some have used index cards cut in shapes.  The tags don't need to be fancy but, I would like to ask that you not use paper clips, tape, straight pins, or safety pins.  All those have to be removed for safety and can cause problems with the fraying the yarn.  Taping a note doesn't present a safety problem, but it also doesn't work, as it doesn't stay attached.

As always Barbara, many thanks and keep up the good work!

  1. Sandy, thanks so much for the tips about labels - I finally got around to tagging my donations, and oh no, I used safety pins! I always attach them through the loops of a stitch so they don't damage the yarn, but I never thought of it being a safety issue. I'm so glad I read this before shipping!

    1. Thanks Jenny for your visit and comment, both are appreciated. The last person who used safety pins caused some fraying so I thought it best I post.

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?
