Donations from our Nations Capital

Thank you Alison, our newest pair of helping hands from our Nations Capital, Washington DC for this thoughtful donation. Alison's blog has been added to the blog log. Please hop over and see her and welcome her to the group. Look at these lovely knitted scarves (11). Lots of different colors and different designs and stitches and yarn/fiber. All so nicely sized! I like nice big enough to wrap up in scarves.

Did a close up to show you 2 with really interesting stitches. The green on the let is a really awesome cable, and I'm not sure what to call the one on the left. The picture doesn't show it's color well, it's light blue. The above dark purple (3rd from the right) is the same fun and interesting stitch. Alison, Love to know what stitch that is and what patterns you used on these 2 scarves. Very cool! Hope to see you here often on Bridge and Beyond.

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?
