Crocheted Hats and Scarves Needed for Homeless

Thank you Patty C for this donation of blue hats and scarves.  Who doesn't like blue?  It's a color that works for men, women, and children.  It's a nice darker color that won't show the dirt and so is always well received.  Patty's made a variety of hat sizes to warm 8 more people in need.  Very nice, please keep up the good work Patty.

Folks, it was only 28 degrees this am when I got up, so while the calendar says it's Spring.........please don't be fooled, it's still cold and the need for warm items like hats and scarves has not gone away.  So please stay busy...just like our fellow Ohioan, Patty and keep your yarn hand.

2016 DONATIONS:
Hats:     260 -8=252
Scarves: 132 -3 = 129
Mittens/Gloves/Wrist Warmers:  86
Slippers: 77
Rain Poncho's:   +106
Cotton Washcloths:   347
Afghans:    14

Cowls/Hoody Combo's, headbands:   8
Shawls and shrugs, ponchos, sweaters & vests etc 0
Misc: items like personal care, headbands etc and things don't fit into above categories aren't counted.

Please note the category of shawl, shrugs, ponchos etc has reached our little goal, same as last year of 1.........but please please please.........don't let that stop you from making more of these items.  Likewise note we've definitely reached our goal for rain poncho's.  Rain ponchos's serve many purposes so we will probably still need some....down the line, but not for awhile.

All donations regardless of size and number are valued. All donations are appreciated. The Power of One is awesome, and when we work together The Power of One becomes The Power of Many.

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?
