Two Crocheted Afghans from New York Help Ohio's Homeless

 Thank you Annemarie from New York for these beautiful and colorful crocheted afghans.  Folks, please click to enlarge.  This particular afghan is truly made like a quilt.  Notice the corners of each square and how with the changing color it would be like tying the knots in the corners of a quilt.  Really nicely done.  This bright and cheery afghan will surely put a smile on the lucky recipeants face.
And...the always popular ripple in nice spring colors.  Both afghans are soft, warm, pretty and are sized nicely for a family to enjoy snuggling in.

As always Annemarie, we appreciate your long term and on going support of Bridge and Beyond and Ohio's Homeless.  Please keep up the good work!

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?
