Donated Hats Make a Needed Difference

Thank you Kate G for mailing these knitted (loomed) hats from the Senior Center.  More heads will be warm and dry which is such an important thing for homeless living out in the elements...even in the warmer months.  Some of the hats will go kids and some adults through the various shelters.

What a nice variety of sizing to accommodate heads of many sizes.

My apologies, The note for this donation got misplaced on my desk and wasn't therefore posted in a very timely manner.  I wish I knew how many ladies and what senior center was involved in the making of these hats, but truly appreciate Kate doing the mailing.

Keep up the good works ladies!

2016 DONATIONS:
Hats:      174 -19=155
Scarves:  109
Mittens/Gloves/Wrist Warmers:  75

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?
