Warming the Homeless Through Crochet

 AnneMarie, do you sleep?  Seriously you must crochet with the fastest hook around.  Hats to fit many different sized heads, in lots of different colors!  Many thanks also AnneMarie for tagging all your hats with size, it really is so very helpful.  There are solids, darks, brighter colors too.  Some hats perfectly suited to the menfolk, others great for the ladies, and some for teens as well.
She's also crocheted some scarves!  A marvelous and caring donation to help many people in need.

Many thanks AnneMarie!

  1. You have left me speechless AnneMarie and you know that is impossible, These hats are really beautiful and look nice and chunky and warm. Love the fact that you have everyone covered:+) men ,women and even kids.Thank you so much for your kindness, cant even imagine how long this must have taken. It would be interesting to know. Long cold winter where you live I am assuming. Seriously, you are truly blessed. Thank you.
    We got another 1/2 inch of snow last night, still looking at 60 for the weekend. Spring is coming we are so ready. GOD BLESS THE HOMELESS. Marj in Minnesota/32 degrees

    1. Marj in Minnesota, you are so right, she was so snowed in she had boxes ready she couldn't get to the post office and so the boxes piled up and bless her heart she just kept crocheting! She had a note with her donation saying she was sorry it had been so long. Our snow melted yesterday, I'm pleased to say and now we're in for the rains. Rained all night and is till raining as we speak, also not good for our homeless friends, but at least it's getting warming...........slowly

    2. Wow AnneMarie! You do such beautiful work and you donate so many different items to help such a wide range of people.

    3. She really does do beautiful work, thank you for your visit and comment Yvonne.

  2. Another big WOW AnneMarie! You rock. Love all the different colors that you used for the hats, something for everyone. The hats and scarves look so warm.

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?
