Yarn Balls a Plenty

 Thank you Sandra L, fellow Ohioan for this thoughtful donation of yarn.  Sandra L and I know each other from a love of history and of graveyards.  Now that might sound a bit odd, but a group of folks whom initially met on line through find a grave, get together periodically and tromp graveyards.  It was on such a tromp through Green Lawn Cemetery here in Columbus where I first met Sandy.  She's a walking history book and is very involved with a special program they have called, First Saturday.  If you're interested in history or enjoy the peace, serenity, or beautiful art work an old cemetery such as Green Lawn has, I encourage you to go.
Sandy is a fellow crocheter who can no longer crochet due painful hands.  She recently cleaned out some closets and asked if I could some yarn?  LOL, if you know me, or have read this blog before you know the answer to that question.  She and I recently got together and had breakfast, visited and I found a home for her yarn balls.  Lots of colors, I may start a scrappy ghan, or I may use these colorful balls of yarn to make some of those wrists warmers I posted the pattern for yesterday.  In fact, I think that's a perfect use.  Thank you Sandy for the yarn donation.  I'm sorry you can no longer crochet; but know that your donation will serve others.

Adding Wrist Warmers/Fingerless gloves to our actual count now.  What is the correct name for them?

    I too enjoy cemetaries, and have spent many hours walking through the Union Cemetary in Louisville, Ohio. Very historical and interesting place.:+)

  4. That is so sweet of you Sandy L to give your yarn to Bridge and Beyond. I know that it will be put to good use and used for many items or one very nice afghan for the homeless.

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?
