A 5 Pound Donation

**Would the unknown knitters from Seattle Washington from this POST, AND Idaho from this post PLEASE make contact**

Caron Yarn5 pounds of green yarn donated by Laurie (luvs2sing on Rav) awhile back. This picture along with Laurie's donation posted yesterday were here on the computer in a wrong file and I just found them. Argh...

This yarn has already been put to use in 2 ways, a scarf in the works for the men under the Bridge and edging squares for a ghan for Project Welcome Home. I love having dark solid colors for the men folk for hats and scarves and use lots of darker colors when edging and joining ghans. Thank you Laurie for your thoughtful donation. Sorry the picture got lost and the post delayed.

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?
