Donating Crocheted Cotton Washcloths

 Pretty, and bright, and cheery.  Look at this neat collection of cotton washcloths from our long time supporter, Sandie P from Louisiana.  Lots of variety in colors, sizes, and styles.  If I had to pick a favorite it might be a toss up between the pink and blue and or the yellow and green.  Remember you can always click on the picture to enlarge so you can see details better.  Interesting stitches, Sandie.  Care to tell us how you did that?  AND, look at the little blue one on the far right bottom.  I put it there, sorta by it'self so you all could see it.  It's double.  Wondering if there's a name for this pod like design?
 Here it is where tugged a bit at the 2 sides so you could see what I mean.  I bet that would make a great scrubby for the tub and or doing dishes.

Thank you Sandie, come again....soon.

  5. Thank you, all! Such sweet comments. Information on links should be in the Picasa album here https://picasaweb.google.com/113945877579101194902/MoreDonatedYarn For some I didn't follow a pattern. I always put details at my blog as well. These are from the January 4 post.

  6. I don't see any details Sandie, only pictures, when I clicked on the picture I thought it would be a link to the info, but it's not, the picture just gets larger.

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?
