  2. Those are the most needy items too. We did a panty ride for women in a shelter. We all decorated panties and rode our motorcycles to the fundraiser. There was almost 200 of us. The fun part was the most enthusiastic were the men. They had bras, girdles, and all new. (that was the deal... all new). Needless to say, it was a good ride and we collected a lot of money and product to give to the home.

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?
