Crocheted Hats and Warm Socks Reach the Homeless

 Thank you AnneMarie.  Your donation is generous and reaches many people.  You may remember folks the afghans that have been posted previously.  This is the remainder of her donation.  Socks, hand and feet warmers, and cotton washcloths.  As I sit here typing and look out at the wet, gray, sorta foggy cool day I know all of these items that were delivered a few days ago are really needed.  I'm in countdown for Spring, but realistically know we will still have several months of long cold days and nights here in Central Ohio.
Additionally, look at all the wonderful hats AnneMarie has crocheted and donated!  18 more warm heads...perfect.  She's crocheted a variety of sizes and colors to meet many needs.  Many thanks AnneMarie for your on going support.

As always, know that you are appreciated and please keep up the good work.

  1. What a wonderful donation AnneMarie! The hats are so nice! Good colors for everyone. The socks will be nice to keep feet warm and dry. Lots of snow again today here in Michigan. Got around 8 inches so far and it is still snowing. The first day of March came in like a lion. LOL

  2. Great hats! I love all the colours especially the bright coloured one at the top. The wash cloths will come in handy and this time of year until May can still be cold. In our area I have seen it snowin April more than once

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?
