Pretty Donations from a Mother and Daughter Team


Our mother and daughter team of Liz (minnisoda from the ville) and Lindsay from Minnesota have donated squares, hats, and scarves.  Liz crochets and her daughter Lindsay knits.  A wonderful team effort and an awesome donation.

I can hardly wait to play with your squares Liz, love them all, but the ones with the flowers in the center are adorable!  I had to show lots of restraint not to immediately do something with them, as I'm currently working on 3 afghans.  Knitted one, and putting together 2 from donated squares, so really had to force myself to bag your squares.  Those flower ones have to be spring ghan for sure....Spring Bouquet might end of being the name of it.

  5. I don't know if I could have resisted, Sandy! These are beautiful. I love the pretty flowers in the centers and the cheerful colors to square themout. Of course all the squares are wonderful. The yarn in the scarves is one I have used before. It gives just that little bit extra in the tweedish look to make the finished product so interesting. Love it!

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?
