Afghans and Hats for the Homeless

 What a fun and interesting color combination for a ripple afghan.  This crocheted ripple afghan is crocheted and donated by our friend Diana K, you saw the first part of her recent donation back a few posts.  Scroll if you missed it folks.  These colors are very fall like and the bright green really makes the whole thing pop.  The afghan will be loved by the family receiving it.  Nice work Diana.
 Diana's been busy...look at all these crocheted hats.  Lots of heads will be warmed.  Appreciate those solid darker colors........great not only for men, but work so well for all.  The hat style has a nice brim which makes the portion by the ears warmer, and or can be unrolled for added length........great style for fitting lots of different head sizes.
Looks the same, but it's sorta different.  This little ghan will be perfect for either a little girl or little boy, could also be used as a lapghan.  You can see it's slightly different in color then the larger family ghan above.  

Keep up the good work Diana K.

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?
