A Donation from Canada

Mitten and hat sets from the skillfull knitting needles of our Canadian Friend, Bonnie B (known as Panther on RAV). Nice warm, soft and sized well for a variety of heads (with those stretchy hats), as well as hands. Bonnie tells me she used The Panda Paw Mitten Pattern we have here on our site, supplied sometime back by our friend James. She made them using good old garter stitch except the ribbing for the wrist area. Nicely done. Many thanks Bonnie, keep up the good work.

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?
