Donating Knitted Adorable and Warm Hats, AWESOME

Our friend Becky P from Washington (ppeatknits on RAV), has done it again. Look at these adorable knitted hats! Wonderfully made, cute as can be and such fun cherry colors! Not sure what type of yarn Becky used, but these hats are soooooooooo nice and soft, the kids who wear them will love them for sure. They'll be warm and cozy and be stylin!

I love how people in the knitting, crocheting, and looming communities connect. Becky and I both knit in a charity group called The Oddball Baby Blankets and got acquainted through that group on RAV, and she then extended her charity knitting to include our need here on Bridge and Beyond. I love that. It happens frequently with our on line friends.

Many thanks Becky, keep up the good work!

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?
