Donating for those in Need

Jessica S. from New Jersey crocheted this purple square and sent along this tan cap to keep a head warm. The purple doesn't show up well, not sure what it is with the colors blue and purple; but it seems often they show up differently-colorwise on the blog (not just mine, others too), but it's a nice dark purple and will start mingling with other squares, you know get acquainted until such time I do some more designing of ghans.

Thank you Jessica for your thoughtful donation.

  1. Hi Jessica - did anyone warn you that once you donate a square you'll keep coming back to see the magic that Sandy works with our squares to turn them into beautiful ghans?! Thanks for donating - enjoy looking for your square - we do!

  2. Hi Flowerlady--I definitely do that already (though not every day)! I'm glad to see you could use the square Sandy! I have another square to send (though I'm not sure how viable it is) and I'm still working on that scarf. I'm using my bad habit of making hourglasses instead of squares as part of a "pattern" of sorts--the scarf will be zig-zag sided instead of straight. It should still be warm and long enough to wrap multiple times.

  3. Jessica, this heartfelt donation is so important to our group! With a hat and a square, you keep some folks warmer this winter. And each time you send in a few more items or tell someone about this great group you belong to, we get to help more and more! Thanks for your donation and hope to see you here LOTS!!

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?
