Crocheted Donations from New York

 Look at this awesome black and gray afghan!  I love this design, haven't made this pattern in a long time and had forgotten how much I liked it.  I think it looks sorta houndstoothy...is that a word?  LOL.  Thank you to our good friend Annemarie in New York for this beautiful afghan.  Whomever ends up with this crocheted afghan in their Welcome Home Package is going to be thrilled. 
AND she's crocheted and donated 6 awesome scarves (one is a keyhole style), plus a hat.  I LOVE this hat.  Click to enlarge so you can see the spirals.  Annemarie....what pattern did you use?

As always, your work is lovely, many thanks for your on going support.  Please keep up the good work.
  • Please remember folks to tag ALL hats with size, rather then my trying to guess and or the volunteers at the various shelters trying to guess. 
  •  Please also remember to wash and block all afghans before mailing.  It removes hair, odors, oil and dust......and it makes the ghan so much more finished.  I always suggest not drying ghans in the dryer...though I know most yarn says it can be done.  They get fuzzy, and you can't blog them in the dryer.  Please lay them out in a pet free area, you almost always need to help shape it, thus the blocking.
  • Please remember we're not currently collecting squares

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?
