Donating Camo Scarf

I always love Patton's Yarn, and had fun crocheting this scarf which was a bit over 7 foot long and 6.5 inches wide. When you knit or crochet with variegated yarns you really don't know how it's going to look, there's a surprise every couple of rows. This is nice and large for our men folk outside. Big enough to really wrap around a couple of times.

Been busy continuing to work on afghans from your squares, as of the writing of this scheduled post, working away on Mother Earth, stay tuned. **Edited this to add, since this post was scheduled Mother Earth has been completed, and as of last night finished another one...you'll have to keep checking in for the reveal; as it's post is also in que. Will be starting on Kaleidoscope today.**

Have you checked the working calendar lately. I've added several more months worth of focuses. Remember, with the exception of squares; we collect everything all year long....the focus of something each month is to highlight what's needed...and to aid you if you're wondering what to make. Please check the tabs of each item for details on colors and size requirements.

  3. The camo. yarn is cool looking. I had not seen it before. I'm not much of a shopper. I need to get out more and check out some other yarns. Oh, wait! I still have a yarn stash to work through.

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?
