  1. I was told by a woman in recovery that she never hides the ends of her yarn where she changes color because she makes Recovery Scarves - they're never done. I think of Child of God Scarves and don't hide the ends, cause like with a Child of God, God's never done.

  2. A lovely thought Flowerlady. And thanks for the encouragement, Sandy...that always sends me back to the yarn basket. I'm hoping everyone has had a loving and peaceful holiday time.

  3. Interesting thought psmflowerlady about the ends; but loose ends catch on things and end up being a problem.

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?
