Knitting Afghans and More for Homeless

 Thank you Sandra R from Florida where so many endured so much recently from Hurricane Irma.  Sandra included.  Relieved to hear you're ok.  Such widespread tragedy and destruction.  Beautifully knitted cotton washcloths.  I love love the brown, the men folk will too.  The pattern in the green scarf is like ribbing and therefore nice and thick...sorta squishy, which will make it nice and warm~
Sandra excels in knitting these awesome Log Cabin Afghans.  She mixes colors so nicely that the afghans work well for men and women.  Beautifully made as always!  These style is really a personal favorite of mine, and what a great way to use up odds and ends.  If you've spent anytime looking at traditional quilts, you'll see this log cabin style frequently.  Lovely, please click to enlarge the picture so you can see this beauty

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?
