New Helping Hands from Arizona for Ohio's Homeless

Jack Otis Memorial Month, Day 9

scarves and sweater4 awesome scarves and one darling sweater from our newest pair of helping hands, Sara T (PixyKayte on RAV), from the state of Arizona. The sweater is knitted and I think 1 of the scarves it, while the other 3 are crocheted? I sent Sara a message, asking if she could share her sweater pattern. Looks like a good one, neck down...I think one piece design? Thank you Sara for joining us, and thank you for your thoughtful donation. We appreciate it and look forward to seeing you and your creations around Bridge and Beyond often.
Wanted to show you all a close up of this darling little sweater. Click to enlarge further.

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?
