Mittens and More from Jean

crocheted mittens for homelessJean, one of our winners of The Mitten Contest, The Mitten Throw down crocheted wonderful mittens of many sizes and and colors using Beth's pattern. She extended some so the cuff is nice and long, and in some cases she turned up a cuff, and in other cases she added nice trims. Click to see all the wonderful items she donated. 35 total pair of mittens, 2 hats, 2 hats and matching mittens, a scarf, a hat and matching scarf, a hat and gator set with buttons. Fabulous. Thank you Jean for your thoughtful and wonderful donation. Everything is so very much appreciated.

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?
