Hats and Scarves and Rain Ponchos Donated

A colorful donation from our good friend RoseMarie, crocheted and donated hats and scarves. As you've no doubt noticed, she has her signature decorations on her donations. She's also included 7 ponchos. These donations are always so very much appreciated. Love the texture in the orange scarf, what stitch did you use?

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?
