Donations from The Land of Lincoln

Thank you Betty B from The Land of Lincoln and The Prairie state of Illinois. Betty's our newest pair of helping hands. We're happy to have you join us and hope to see you here on The Bridge often. Betty donated 20 wonderful crocheted squares and 23 pairs of socks. Lots of feet will be warmed and these 20 squares will make friends soon with others in a afghan for Project "Welcome Home."

Wow folks look how close we're getting to our goals....I wondered if we might hit 500 scarves or 1,000 hats by the close of the year 2011. Only 17 hats needed, and 19 scarves to do that! Remember posts are written, placed in que, scheduled...so while you're reading this post in the year 2012, this one was written Dec 21st. All items received in the calendar year of 2011 are recording in that year....soooooooo 9 days left.

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?
