Crocheting in Virginia Helps Ohio's Homeless

Thank you, Thank you Gail B!  Gail B has done it again.  Look at this awesome donation of hats, scarves, hats, and cotton washcloths.  Such a nice nice variety.  Gail has been very busy with her crochet hook.  Gail has been a long time and generous supporter of Bridge and Beyond and Ohio's homeless folks.  Many thanks Gail, you truly ROCK!

Gail always takes the time to nicely tag her hats with size which is greatly appreciated by me, as well as by those volunteers at the various homeless shelters, and or our friend Rae.  Take a minute folks, and click to enlarge the picture so you can see the details.  The particular style in her scarves is awesome.  She's added detail/texture with the choice of stitches.  You can see the ridges in the scarves, which gives extra warmth, as well as visual interest.

As always, PLEASE keep up the marvelous good work, Gail.

HATS: 329-5=324

**We started the year with the number of items we had donated last year, 2016; and will subtract our donations from that.  Using the end number for 2016 as the goal for the each item.  So, as the year continues you will see numbers decrease.  Our goal is to meet and surpass the number of items donated last year.**

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?
