    WELCOME RAINA. Sounds like you may be new. Certainly glad you are joining us your donation is lovely. The orange hat is very interesting. Have not seen that yarn before. Such a nice gift of many different things and also differnt sizes. Mens hats included. Thank you for including them. It has been a tough winter for everyone but especially the guys.GOOD JOB.

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?
