The Granite State Helping the Homeless

Behind door #1...we have 31 hats, and pair of slippers, but wait..........there's more.
The chat from the price is right is running through my head, and one of those other TV game shows. Back though to the business at hand. Rose M. from the state of New Hampshire, The Granite State (you might have remember that nick name, as it was recently discussed); our newest pair of helping hands sent 2 stuffed boxes of goodies. Her 2nd donation contains 6 pairs of mittens, another pair of slippers, 6 scarves, and 35 cotton washcloths. Look at all the great colors and selection in her cotton washcloths.

Many thanks Rose M, we're thrilled to have you join us here on Bridge and Beyond; and look forward to seeing you often. What a wonderful and thoughtful donation. Please 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?
