What your Donations Become

This afghan in waiting is titled Dusty Rose. This ghan is designed from big and little squares, from squares and rectangles, from knitted and crocheted squares, from sampler and granny style squares. This design waiting to be assembled has squares from lots of different hands. Can you find a square of yours here? If so, please sing out. I know off the top of my head there are squares from my high school friend Joy here...5 of them I think. I'll probably edge and join in pink provided I have enough yarn that matches. Some squares are quite a bit smaller then others, so will need quite a bit of edging....will have to see how it goes when the time comes.
I'm very much in thinking stages on this design. Currently I'm calling this one, Summers End. Colors are muted, much like colors at the end of summer are. Sometimes I think it goes together, other times...I'm not certain. Love to have some input on this one. These are all crocheted squares, different sizes though. Some are sampler squares (all the pink and greens), and the variegated are granny squares. Do you see some of your squares here? Sing out if you do.

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?
