Knitted Afghans Help Ohio's Homeless

 Thank you Marilyn W for this awesome donation of crocheted afghans.  I LOVE the colors in this first one, I think it's sorta Buckeyeish.  It's made with double yarn or chunky yarn, not sure...hey Marilyn which?  It's therefore nice and warm and squishy.  This will surely make someone's day when they receive it.
Ahhhhhhh, Feather and Fan a real favorite of mine, it's always such a good pattern choice.  Again this is made with chunky or double yarn and will keep someone nice and cozy.  

Marilyn is a high school classmate of mine, well actually we've known each other even longer then that.  We knew each other way back in junior high, so it's very special to me that she's helping us here on Bridge and Beyond.  We enjoyed a bit of catch up the other day when we met for breakfast so she could along her donations.

**stay tuned folks, there's more; but remember I'm breaking up some of the donations to minimize the number of pictures in a post, to help you all see the lovely items better, and to give us more consistency with a post daily**

    Lovely Marilyn. These will quickly become someones treasure. So beautiful and I enjoy the knitted stuff as I am not able to do that at all. My sister does but again being a leftie, I never learned. Such beautiful gifts for the Ohio Homeless. Thank you again, and keep up the good work.

  2. Very nice afghans Marilyn! They are so pretty and look so warm. Thank you for keeping more people warm this winter.

  3. Marilyn love your afghans and Sandy you're right the first does look like it has Buckeye Spirit. The second one is Gorgeous also. Great work and much needed afghans.

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?
