Knitted Hats and Mittens for the Homeless

Thank you Sandra R for this thoughtful and generous donation.  You know how excited I get when we get a donation of mittens.  Sandra's knitting is always fabulous and she's made hat and mitten set here in a variety of colors and styles to warm many heads and hands!  Special thanks also Sandra for labeling items with the size.  It saves me time and more importantly, helps those volunteers at the various shelters.

Many thanks for your on going and long term support of Bridge and Beyond, and Ohio's Homeless.  YOU ROCK!

As always, please keep up the good work.

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?
