Taking Yarn with You

LOL....I know we all can relate to this.  It's rare for most of us to leave the house without yarn.  Some  folks have yarn in their purses,some leave yarn and a project in their cars and others carry a tote with them wherever they  go.  I recently attended an info meeting about medicare and the gentlemen next to me pulls out yarn to knit during the meeting.  I didn't actually have mine with me,  I was busy taking notes, but did turn the pages of his info book for him so he could keep up with where we were in the program and not loose count or drop a stitch, lol.

As always sharing a little humor to go with your yarn and knitting or crocheting.  Enjoy!

  2. Yep, yarn goes with me all the time. I have knitting at work, take knitting with me when I go visit the people and knitting at 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?
