Hats and Scarves for Homeless

Thank you Phyllis G for this awesome donation of scarves and hats.  Your thoughtful crocheted donation for Bridge and Beyond has pulled us even with last years mark for hats!  Woot!! WOOT!!  We've warmed more cold homeless heads from this point forward.  That's pretty exciting.  AND the scarves are making our numbers climb even higher over last years numbers.  I can't tell you all how excited I am by the blue + numbers, as last year's totals were down considerably from the previous year.

LOVE your choice of colors Phyllis.  These colors will work for women or men.  Many thanks for your caring and generous donation to help Ohio's homeless.  Please keep up the good work.

The weather has definitely turned here in Central Ohio.  We've had a handful of days with temps below freezing this past week.  Trees are bare and the skies are gray.  Ohio's winter has settled in.  Please keep your yarn hooks, and knitting needles handy and busy folks.

Thank you for all you do to help others.

**For anyone new to the blog, the counting below maybe confusing.  When 2016 began, we started with the number of items donated the previous year and are counting down in hopes of hitting and surpasses the number of items donated last year.**

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?
