Donations from a Speedy Hook in Georgia

4 Squares, 5 matching hat and scarves set all crocheted and donated by Diana K from The Peach Tree State (Georgia). Unsure if Diana mailed her 3 boxes all at one time or whether they came at different times through out my time away; so am grouping them here all together. I love the pretty shade of purple! Obviously she used her left over yarn from the hats and scarves to make some granny squares too. Good utilization.
16 crocheted granny squares here....can you see how these plus the ones above are all going to go well together!
AND 6 more matching sets of hats and scarves. Woot Woot! Diana your hook must be on file! Many thanks for your thoughtful donations. 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?
