How did I miss this. I would be happy to be a knitter for the baby blanket project.

Hello again everyone!

We now have definite leaders for your region.

The Midwest territory has been separated into 3 groups:

Midwest Great Lakes Baby Blankets - Led by traceleighj
(Wisconsin, Michigan, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio)

Midwest Great Plains Baby Blankets - Led by kellyh57
(North Dakota, South Dakota, Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska)

Midwest Preemie Blankets - Led by stagebear
(entire Midwest)

Congratulations, ladies!!

By the way, I need your help Midwesterners. I've been looking online, and it seems that Minnesota is being claimed by Great Plains sometimes, and by Great Lakes other times. Can you help me figure out where it actually belongs?

In group organizations, I've always seen it as grouped with the Dakotas and Iowa rather than Wisconsin.

Right...and momwolf said Great Lakes.
So, just like I've seen everywhere else, Minnesota is claimed by both areas.

lol - I had missed her response. I'd go with whatever the Minnesotans say then.
(I guess we differ since she's closer to WI and I'm in ND across the river from MN.)

Well this has been a challenge to find out where my state belongs. This is what I came up with
Great Plains


The Columbia Encyclopedia, Sixth Edition | Date: 2008

Great Plains extensive grassland region on the continental slope of central North America. They extend from the Canadian provinces of Alberta, Saskatchewan, and Manitoba south through W central United States into W Texas. In the United States the Plains include parts of North Dakota, South Dakota, Montana, Wyoming, Colorado, Nebraska, Kansas, Oklahoma, New Mexico, and Texas.

Map wise we are Great Lakes Region


In most written information the top half is Great lakes and the middle and lower half is Great Plains.So I'm in the Great Lakes region and Minneapolis is Great Plains. I know I'm no help.Didn't realize the state was divided.Just always thought we were Great Lakes region because we bordered Lake Superior
