Warm and Toasty

As promised a better picture of this afghan from Diana K.  YOu saw it all folded up last time, and here it is (already tabulated), laid out after being laundered.  Who doesn't love a ripple.  A ripple and granny squares aren't those the first two designs that pop into your head when you think of a traditional afghan!

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?
