Hats and Scarves oh My

hats and scarvesCrocheted hats and scarves from our friend RoseMarie. She always decorates her donations so cute with the little flowers with button centers. I've yet to make one...flower that is; though plan to. Thank you RoseMarie for your ongoing support, it is greatly appreciated. Thanks too for the link for the video for how to make the flowers. I saved it somewhere (hopefully when I have time to make one, I'll be able to find it, lol).

*8 more days folks for April Showers, you still have time to read about it and to participate, please click in the sidebar
**Remember folks, you do not have to be a blogger to leave comments, simply type your comment, then click name and url in the drop down, leave the url space blank, type your name in the name area and hit publish. We love having you visit and read, but if you leave a comment we'll know you were here. AND, comments are helpful for the blog's placement in search engines, which helps us be more visible to potential knitters and crocheters who might like to add their helping hands to our cause. Don't be shy, do leave us comments.
***Have you checked the lists (both with and without blogs), is there a state listed by your name? If not, please leave a comment as to what state you're from. Trying hard to get everyone properly documented. Would like to update the map at the bottom of the page. Have you scrolled down to see the map? If not, please do. Knowing what state you're from is helpful when I'm trying to match up donations that come without notes. Thank you.

When we hit post #400 a special announcement will be made. This is a contest to celebrate our milestone. You REALLY don't want to miss it folks, so please keep checking in. This is post #397, so only 3 more posts to go!!!

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?
