Squares donated from Texas

These squares of various sizes and colors are knitted and donated by a Linda J. from San Antonio. I've not been able to make contact after searching long and hard through emails, facebook and other places. Have posted multiple times in hopes of obtaining your email addy. So, if you're out there, please make contact. I've tucked these squares away; they will be used; but as I'm concentrating on squares the same size (size and color and times to mail detailed in the squares tab), not for awhile.
These squares also from Linda J. are wool (thank you for including that note). Over time I've gotten a few wool squares and have kept them separate as the afghans donated are best made from washable acryclic/wool. Don't want to mix them up...that would be a problem for our folks when they try to laundered them to have some squares washable and others not.

Folks, I don't want to appear UN-gracious about donations; but please please put a note in your box so I can make contact. Many of you don't have your names in your emails so trying to search through emails is very labor intensive and time consuming. Likewise, every item we request has a tab, hat, mittens, scarves, squares, afghans, etc. In each tab are requirements for size and colors and yarn types. I really need to ask you all to read those before you mail donations, before you take time to make something. We want to be sure our items are well received.

If you have something you wish to donate that is not hand knit or crocheted, doesn't meet the guidelines in terms of colors or size etc. PLEASE make contact with me so we can chat about it. It saves you time, me time, and time at the receiving end of the large numbers of places we donate to.

Thanks!

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?
