Donation from The Garden State

Love this blue variegated. Think I had some of this yarn awhile back and made a couple of booties and hats for little ones. Reminds me of blue jeans. This interesting square is being donated by Jessica S (along with personal care items) from the State of New Jersey, The Garden State. Sure wish it were gardening weather Jessica. This square is mingling with other squares, making friends and before long will be part of afghan spreading the love for our Project" Welcome Home."
Thank you Jessica for your thoughtful donation.

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?
