Wonderful Crocheted Blue Scarves to Warm the Homeless

Who doesn't love blue?  Blue is good for men or women.  Lovely scarves from our friend, Ruth A.  I really love the size, long enough to wrap around for added warmth.  Ruth hails from Virginia and has been such a good supporter of Bridge and Beyond.  

I love scarves, think how cool you sometimes are when your neck is exposed to just wind...even when it's not that cold out?  Scarves can make such a huge difference in someone's comfort in or outdoors.  You know even those indoors, in a shelter perhaps for the night could enjoy a nice soft warm scarf wrap around them.

Please keep up the good work Ruth, and know how much we appreciate your efforts.


(folks this is another post that should have been published some time ago, but was stuck in draft mode,so did a cut and paste so it would publish today.)  I'm double checking settings to see if I can determine what has changed that's causing this problem.

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?
