Fun and Unique Cotton Knit Washcloths for Homeless

Washcloths, wonderful soft, colorful, knitted and crocheted cotton washcloths made by our newest pair of helping hands Sue V.K. in Wisconsin, and donated to help Ohio's homeless and others in need. WOW. The one in the middle is super fun. Click to enlarge this, and all photo's so you can see details. I think this might involve a skipped stitch? Looks like dashes running across the cloth...very cool. I've not seen this pattern before.
Color, color, color....even after going shopping specifically for cool cotton colors, here's some I've not yet seen. The larger cloths are crocheted and such nice sizing for the men. Ripples, stripes, variegated and more.
This orange one also looks very different and is I think made with slip stitches somehow from previous rows? Knitted. We're happy to have you join us Sue and appreciate your helping hands.
Sue donated 30 washcloths, squares for our current months focus, and a nice heavy hat.

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?
