Peppermint and Spearmint Afghan Design

Will probably increase this afghan by adding a couple of rows of dark brown to the squares before joining.  I thought of mint looking at these squares, we've already a mint chocolate chip ghan, and with both the pink and the green...how bout Peppermint and Spearmint for the name?  If you have another idea, please sing out.  This ghan should come together very well since all the squares are uniform in size.

Been designing like crazy lately with the squares on hand, in case you missed that in the recent posts...do scroll back to see if you can find any of your squares.  With ample supply on hand, please hold mailing additional squares for the time being.  I need to free up some storage space folks, thanks!

April is coming to a close, May's focus will be hats.  Hats are needed for Men, Women, and children; not toddlers and infants.  PLEASE tag ALL hats with size.  When you tag your hats you do not need to be fancy, use string, yarn, or a safety pin when attaching your tag to your hat.  Please check hat tab for help with sizing, information needed, as well as what to avoid, thank you.

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?
