  3. Super donation Yvonne. THANKS! Love those socks! Love the nice manly colors and they look heavy so they will keep some folks nice and warm. The slippers look soft and comfy. I have not tried to knit slippers yet. But plan to do so this summer. Hoping they are not too hard?!

  6. Thanks for all the nice comments. Sally, I used the Aunt Maggie slipper pattern and it isn't too hard at all. They were one of the first things I learned to knit and I've made a lot of pairs since then.

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?
