Pink Lollipops Designed Afghan

Continuing to unveil designed afghans with your donated squares brings me this bright pink mix.  It's a mix of shades, types of squares, sizes of squares and it made me think of lollipops.  There are cherry, strawberry, watermellon, raspberry lollipops in many different shades of pink, so I hit on Pink Lollipop as a name for this designed afghan.  I probably will use white to edge and join, though I rarely do.  Firstly because I have lots of white in my stash, and need to use it up.  My thought, because of the dirt factor is to edge and join in white and have a very small white border followed by some shades of pink so the edge ...the part held the most by hands won't show the dirt as much?

I've been working through mounds of both new and old squares, thus the variance in size.  Prior to accepting only 8 x 8 inch squares, I accepted 7 - 10 inch squares, but as you can see many of these in the recent designs aren't 7 x 7 or 9 x 9 etc, many are rectangles, and some are 4 and 5 inch squares from left overs from other groups and left over before Bridge and Beyond was formed.  Have you found any of your squares in these recent designs?  Scroll back and take a look over the last week or so.

**Still have plenty of squares on hand, so please hold mailing squares until they are called for as a month's focus**

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?
