Knitted Donations from Friends

Good friends unit to help the homeless.  Nancie D and Patty W long time friends in Texas have joined forces to knit for those in need here in Ohio through their donations to Bridge and Beyond.  Scarves, scarves, scarves.  Look at the variety of sizes and colors.  The nice solid dark colors are so perfect for our men folk, and brighter colors will work for the ladies.  My favorite might be the gray black combo in the middle of the picture. click folks to see them all.

Thank you ladies for your big hearts and for helping those in need here in Ohio.  Winter is above us here in Central Ohio with temps well below freezing of late.

Please keep up the good work, it is so very much appreciated.

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?
