Crocheted Donations from Minnesota, The North Star State

Crocheted donations from our good friend and long time supported Liz (minnesoda on the ville). As always, awesome. Look at her fabulous squares, most of which I've already designed a ghan from. She's donated 5 knitted cotton cloths (nicely sized for men, special thanks!) 3 scarves, a hat, and 29 squares. As I was laying out her donation for Ohio's homeless and noticed she had alot of squares that went together, I decided to go ahead and play with them. Made several arrangements when I came up with this traditional diagonal, counting how many of each color their were etc.

By the time you read this scheduled post, the ghan is well on it's way; as I began assembly soon there after. Stay turned for the finished product. I'm unsure what I want to call this afghan. As you know, I name our afghans, initially I thought this looked like fall foliage, and was in fact going to name it that.......then the next time I looked at it, garden patches came to mind. Thoughts? Which name do you think fits better, and or do you have another suggestion?

**Asked this when it was in the works over on Sandy's Space and got a great suggestion, Bountiful Harvest, thank you hakucho for the suggestion. So...I think that described both feelings I had and it now has a name. Bountiful Harvest.**

11 More days in our contest, is your name is at least 1 of the 3 hats? Details for the contest available can be found on the blog post for Feb 14th, and or by clicking on the badge in the sidebar.

What state are you from? Is your state listed on our map of donators? Is your state listed with your name on our blog list, or the list of those who donate who don't have a blog, or those who donate and have a facebook, ravelry, hive page etc? PLEASE check. Would love to identify where everyone is from, still quite a few on the list without a state accompanying their name. Would also love to add more states to our map, it's been a good long while since we've been able to add to it. Are you from: Conn, Idaho, Kansas, Kentucky, Maine, Miss, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, Oregon, Rhode Island, South Dakota, Texas, or Utah? If you're from one of those states and you've donated, please leave a comment so we can correct it. Currently those states have no one representing them. Are you from one of those states and knit or crochet....please join us and represent your state.

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?
