Crocheted Fair Isle Afghan Donated

WOW, look at this beautiful afghan crocheted and donated by Sheelagh S.  Isn't it awesome.  I love it, makes me think of when I was young and the ski sweaters we wore.  This will truly make someone's day.  This afghan is made in the Fair Isle design, carrying yarn as you go, so you know how nice and thick and warm it is physically.  Plus, it's so beautifully done the warmth and love someone will feel when they receive this, will surely make them feel loved and know they do matter........even to the stranger that made this especially for them. 

 That's what's so important about we do folks.  Yes we knit, we crochet, we loom, and we donate warm items that ward off the cold for those that have less, but we are gifting them something very special, a piece of us and our wishes for them to improve their state.  We're telling them they matter, we're telling them we care.  That's why homemade is so important in the cause.

Many thanks Sheelagh for your hard work, please keep up the good work.

This afghan is from Leasure Arts Book #1, ISBN 0-942237-24-2, 1993, titled Afghans For All Seasons.  I asked because I thought you all might want to know.  Thanks Sheelagh.
Please stay tuned, as you know I often break up larger donations to help us with a post a day, please stay tuned as Sheelagh was most generous and you don't want to miss anything.

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?
