Colorful and Warm Donations

Thank you Sue F from Ohio for this wonderful donation.  I love those slippers!  Folks be sure and click the picture so you can see them better.  I believe she's used double yarn; but am not certain what type of yarn.  Sue...is it double DK or sock yarn?  Very nice and I love fun mix of colors.  She's also knitted 3 nice warm hats and a pair of mittens, and a crocheted scarf.  Again, I think the hats and scarf is double yarn?

Thanks also for remembering to tag those hats and slippers with size...that's very much appreciated.  Please keep up the good work.

  2. Glad I could help. Yes, everything but the mittens are two strands of regular worsted weight yarn. I was using up my scraps but I love the patchwork-y look of the slippers with the different colors.

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?
