From the Sunny Shore of Florida

 Barbie T and her friend Gesher H have been knitting up a storm.  Look at the hats.  33 hats, all knitted with the stretchy ribbing that's so great for fitting lots of heads.  They look small when you look at them, but they are quite stretchy and so have a good range of heads they'll fit.  Stella hasn't modeled for us in very long time; and she's quite put out about it too. Stella and I have the same sized heads so most of these hats will fit kids and teens, and perhaps adult women like me with a small head.  She's also included 2 warm scarves.

Love the variety of colors in the hats too, click to enlarge to see them all.  Thank you Barbara and friends for your support, 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?
