Manly colored scarf

knitted black scarf
Got this scarf finished a few days ago; just didn't get it photographed and posted for awhile. This is knitted using Homespun on size 11 needles. I often don't use the size suggest on labels. The homespun labels suggest size 10, so I went up 1 full size. Got a 2nd scarf in the works with the same yarn as we speak. Though it's not exactly black, figured this would be a good manly color. It's called Edwardian. It's 7 inches wide and 67 inches long. Got this yarn from my Darling Daughter's stash when I was looking for manly colors.

Sorry the picture is a bit blurry, must have moved when I snapped it.

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?
