Helping Ohio's Homeless is a Year Long Quest

Above you see a wonderful crocheted donation from our friend, Nikki S.  Lots of scarves (11), couple of hats and a warm cowl.  Nice color variety too.  Many thanks Nikki for your thoughtful donation.  It's both appreciated, and very much needed.  I've begun wearing a sweatshirt/fleece etc here in the house; it's no longer comfortable without bundling up.  Temps have been dipping into the 40's at night with some frost.  I fear the good weather is now past.  Presumably we'll have a few nice days here and there, but anyone without heat, or without a roof over their heads now will be in need.

The cold, damp Ohio fall and winters are upon us.  Even on a sunny day, when that sun goes down, it's uncomfortable.  Let's gear up with our yarn, knitting needles, and crochet hooks and do what we can to aid those in need.

  5. Love the variety. I haven't had time to knit anything in forever.

    Thank for the heads up about W@5. No idea what is going on there and a little frustrated that google makes it so hard to get answers. I don't want to call someone but it looks like calling godaddy is my only option.

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?
