Pink Persuasion Afghan Donation

 Pink Persuasion is done.  It's being blocked here after being laundered.  The picture still has the colors a bit off, it's not that bright, the darker blocks are really more a dusty darker mauve.  It must be because we're not getting any good natural sunlight these days here in Central Ohio, because the last picture I took of it showed it darker like this also.  The squares were donated by several different people.  I edged each square with a row of DC, crocheted the blocks together and edge with 2 rows of SC.  Between the additional edges, and the blocking it turned out just over a 50 inch square, nice size.  I started edging these squares while away recently on vacation and had about half of it edged and joined by the time I got home.  I also continued knitting the striped ghan and it's coming along, though knitting is much slower so it will be awhile.
I was able to collect some personal care goodies in my travels to add to the donations as well.

Hope you're all staying warm, it's been frigid here lately with temps in the negative at night and early mornings.

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?
