Help for Homeless with Donations from Georgia

 Thank you Diana K from Georgia for your thoughtful donation.  Looks like Diana has been crocheting even in her sleep with this generous donation.  A checkerboard afghan.  I love these colors together.  Very nice!
 Took several pictures as I was unloading the box.  A ripple style scarf and mound of crocheted cotton washcloths which are always a hit.
 And the final layer in box of donations, another afghan, scarf, and more cotton washcloths, plus a couple of small hats.  Nicely done done Diana.  Everything is so very much appreciated.  Please keep up the good work!

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?
