Donating Knitted Slippers

 Thank you Kathy U from West Virginia for these toasty knitted slippers.  I often ask folks in the course of blogging what pattern they use, as many leave comments wondering.  She's included a note telling us she used Bev's pattern for these slippers.  Thanks also for pairing and tagging them with size, it's much appreciated.  Additionally, she's donated a crocheted hat and some person care items.

Many thanks Kathy for your thoughtful donation, it's greatly appreciated.  Please keep up the good work.  Hope to see you here often on Bridge and Beyond.

Here we are the 4rd day in April already.  Aprils focus will be scarves, but I'd also like to continue our focus on afghans and quilts.

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?
