The MotherLoad of Mittens

WOW! 50 pairs of beautifully knit mittens from Judy C. from Pennsylvania. Look at the wonderful variety of sizes and colors she provided us. A very special thank you too Judy for labeling them so nicely for me. I greatly appreciate that. She has them labeled by size, adult, child etc., and has them attached to each other. Fabulous all the way around. Thank you Judy, our newest pair of helping hands for your beautiful work. Hope to see you here often on Bridge and Beyond.
Wanted to take a 2nd photo so you could see some of the mittens close up. They truly are awesome!

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?
