Knitted Mittens and Hats for the Cold Homeless

  Thank you Sandra R for this awesome donation of lovely warm knitted hats.  Our good friend in Florida Sandra R always includes some sunshine in her boxes of donations too lol.  The day I opened this donation, we surely needed it.  Awesome hats, with great colors and size variety to fit many different heads.  Thank you Sandra for always tagging them with size.  That's so helpful and saves so much time both here at my house and when they get to the various shelters.
Our good friend and long time generous supporter Sandra had 2 boxes of donations.  Box one was the hats above and box 2...........yippee.  See me clapping and dancing in the street again!  27 fabulous pairs of mittens.  Please click to enlarge the picture so you can see all these wonderful mittens.  Again, she's taken the time to tag the all with size, and such a wonderful collection of sizes and colors.  These were delivered the very next day to our friend Rae who feeds those living out in the elements.  I didn't want to waste any time getting these out to those so desperately in need.  Though behind posting here, they was a rush delivery and Rae delivered them pronto, as the weather was frigid.

Many thanks Sandra, and 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?
