Stripes, "That's a fact Jack"

Do you remember the movie, "Stripes?" That popped in my head as soon as opened this box of striped scarves from Angie. That quote, "that's a fact Jack", also jumped in my brain. lol Fun movie for sure. So are these scarves...fun for sure. Angie is a fellow Ohioan. I divided her colorful scarves by size. Some for men, some for women, some for kids/teens.
This is box 2 of Angie's donation. Many thanks Angie, our newest pair of helping hands for your donation. Hope to see you here often.

  3. The stripes are so cheerful! I may use this idea to finish up some leftover yarn that I really like.

  4. Thanks all for your visits, and your comments. Appreciate it and it's wonderful to see you all supporting and enjoying each others work.

  5. Very nice, and bright colors too! I haven't been taking a look over here as much as I should I guess. These scarves give me lots of inspiration for some of the yarns I have!

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?
