Classmates Reunited to do Good

Please welcome our newest pair of helping hands, Marilyn from Ohio. Through the beauty of Facebook, Marilyn W and I got re-acquainted. Marilyn and I were thick as thieves in Junior High and most of High School. Then with different interest we lost touch. She married and moved away. It's wonderful to be reconnected, to share memories and to remember why we enjoyed each other so much. We have a lot in common. The obvious thing we have in common is knitting and helping other people. See the proof above. These scarves are very well made, nice and soft and very warm. The navy blue in the middle is I think called a seaman scarf? Where the neck portion is more narrow to wrap. It was a way to save yarn back in WWII times I belief. Trying to remember the history of it. It's a very traditional and long standing popular scarf pattern.

Not only we been able to reconnect on Facebook, and here on Bridge and Beyond, we've reconnected face to face and have had dinner!

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?
