Knitted Hat with Cables Warms Homeless

Thank you friend of the homeless for this very nice knitted hat.  Folks please click to see the nice details of these cables.  The color of the hat was a nice brown that didn't show up correctly in this photo.  This donation came from a charity group on RAV and while I know the name of skilled knitter, she has asked to be anonymous for the group.  I do require people not be anonymous with me for many reasons that address problems I've had over the last 8-9 years; but have no problem with helping hands being anonymous here on the blog.

Many thanks for the lovely hat, the person wearing it is warmed, both physically and emotionally.

Hope to see you again here on Bridge and Beyond, please keep up the good work of helping the Homeless of Central Ohio.

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?
