Donating Red Marble Scarf

This knitted scarf is more of The Marble Yarn I talked about (shades of gray scarf), a nice acylic, softer then many I've worked with bulky and therefore works up nicely on size 10 or 10.5 needles. I love the way the shades emerge in this yarn. It's a nice size ball/marble at 314 yards in a skein and priced about $13.00 a skein in case you're interested in trying it yourself.

  2. I loved this scarf and the similar grey one you made. Do you ever purchase yarn from "The Yarn Shop" in Upper Arlington? They have some awesome yarn there even though either can't afford to purchase or its just a bit too far. You always have such beautiful pieces.

  3. This is really beautiful. I'm not sure if they carry this yarn at Hobby Lobby, but if they do you could use one of their 40% off coupons to make the yarn a bit more affordable.

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?
