Donation Delivered in the Driveway

Day 15, Jack Otis Memorial Month
hats and washclothsThank you Cheryl G from Florida for the 11 knitted washcloths and 23 knitted hats. Cheryl is out newest pair of helping hands. Cheryl and I were classmates and therefore she too was a classmate of Jack's. Bill's too.

Cheryl was in town for a wedding and was able to hand delivery this donation. Wished we could have visited more, but I was zipping to the hospital. Still was wonderful to see her again, even though briefly there in the driveway.

Many thanks Cheryl for your thoughtful donation, hope to see you often here on Bridge and Beyond.

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?
