Hats a necessary Item for Homeless

Thank you Janis F for this wonderful donation of crocheted hats.  All so nicely made, and all with size tags!  LOVE it.  I think I'd have to pick the blue as my favorite, click to enlarge folks to see the texture detail...really nice.  Janis 5 heads will be warmer because of you and your talents.

Many thanks, and please keep up the work of caring for others.  It is so needed and truly appreciated.

    1. Thanks for popping in Marj. Was 20 here this am at 9 am, don't know how much colder it was before that. The sun is out, so there's hope...I hope. Love how supportive you are with your lovely comments.

  2. Janis, nice donation of hats to keep 5 people warm. Sandy, I like the white hat the best. Rosemarie.

    1. Hi Rosemarie, thanks for popping in and being so supportive of our other donators, much appreciated. Hope you're warming up there in Tenn.

  3. Nice hats Janis! I like the blue hat also. Cold wind and cloudy today here in MI. It's to be about 43 this afternoon. Happy Palm Sunday everyone.

  4. What a great initiative, Sandy.

    I dropped by after reading your comment on my blog. I'll check back again, when the A-Z challenge begins. Good luck with all your endeavors!

    Greetings from the Netherlands!

  5. Thanks for popping in Sue, sounds like you got a bit warmer then we did. I went out to walk when it was 38, but the wind was brutal so came back in and did a little walking in the house. Hoping it warms up more today. Happy Palm Sunday to you too.

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?
