Donations from the State of Texas help Ohioans

 Look at this haul folks.  Scarves, hats, cotton washcloths, a poncho, a shawl, and 2 afghans!  Woot Woot, she me doing a happy dance.  Look again, cause I'm definitely dancing.  This wonderful donation comes from a new pair of helping hands from the state of Texas.  Not only is Maria Teresa R a new pair of helping hands for us here on Bridge and Beyond, she is a newbie knitting wise.  I don't know about you, but in my book....she's got the knack!
 Wanted to show you a close up of this knitted, love the colors.  Doesn't it look perfect for this time of year with all it's yummy Autumness.  (not really a word, but seems like it should be)
Here you can see a close up of the heart in her blanket/afghan suitable for a young girl with the pretty pastels.  To the right upper corner in the first photo, you'll see a black and purple adult sized afghan.  Very nice!

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?
