Donating Kaleidoscope Afghan











Kaleidoscope Afghan completed and donated to our Project "Welcome Home". Was pleased with the way this turned out and appreciate everyone's input on what color to join with. Went with black, as you can see. It's a nice size for a little girl/ teen lapghan size. You see it here just before it was laundered and blocked. Used up all the black that matched in my stash, some of the pink yarn donated by my high school friend, Connie and donated squares from...I believe a time before Bridge and Beyond. I don't have a picture so am unsure where or whom they came from; but believe it was an anonymous group that went defunct some time back.

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?
