Crochet Along

Two days ago I joined a crochet along with Gourmet Crochet designer Carolyn Christmas. I was so excited to join this group crochet along for many reasons. The first reason was because this was my first crochet along ever. I've always wanted to join one but never did. The second reason is because I have admired Carolyn's beautiful work for some time now and was excited to be involved in something she created. The third reason is that it is a mystery crochet along which means we don't get to see or know what the pattern looks like before hand. Carolyn posts a pattern each day of a square until the project is complete. We do know it is going to be an afghan.

Today is day three. I have not made my square yet for the day but I cannot wait. The pictures are of Day 1 and 2. These are colors 2 out of 3 that I will be using in my afghan. Today I will be using my third color. When I went to Jo-Ann's I knew I would be picking out yarn for this project and fell in love with these colors.

It's not too late to join the crochet along fun. Just click here t0 go to Carolyn's blog where you can find the patterns for all 3 days so far. You don't have to do anything to join. Just go to her blog everyday for the new pattern. Its as simple as that!

OK so I made the first square today... but then I ended up going to JoAnn's online (because the store's yarn is sparse and so is mine) and bought a bunch of yarn for the project. So once I get it in the mail I will start because it is a fun pattern!

It is a fun pattern! I'm so glad you decided to do it. I'm having a lot of fun with it, too. I like the colors I chose a lot. You see the 2 and then the third is like a lime earthly colored green. I think its gonna look cool when its all done! Can't wait to see yours. And did you see they have a Flicker and Ravelry group too?
