Crocheted Hats and Scarves for Ohio's Homeless

Thank you Joy D, my old high school friend for this awesome and very generous donation of crocheted goodies!  Joy and I go back a long way, clear back to junior high days.  She crochets beautifully.  I love all the nice dark solid colors that are suitable for men or women.  She's been busy as you see.  I needed to take 2 pictures so I could spread out her whole donation.  Scarves are nice and big so they'll be able to be really wrapped around for added warmth!  Hats are nice and think.  



I always marvel at how tightly and evening Joy is able to crochet, being able to do that really makes the items super warm.

Many thanks for your thoughtfulness Joy, and many thanks for your long standing friendship!

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?
