It did take a lot of colors but I love how it turned out! I can't wait to give it to my Grandma Smiley

The other projects are amazing as well by the way! I love how colorful the sweater is. And I have to give props to anyone who has the patience to sew together that many squares for a blanket, 12 was hard enough!

I will! I think it is the perfect gift and it has turned out to be wonderful timing. I saw this pattern and thought she would love it because she has a lot of cats. She lives on old farm land in northern Ohio, she started with one cat and then they just kept showing up and getting dropped off.

So I started this afghan two years ago at work, I would crochet while on the phones. I got all most all of the squares done but then I was helping with a bunch of new hire classes for a few years on and off and put it aside. Recently, my grandmother left her 2nd husband of 29 years and has been traveling to Maryland and South Carolina to stay with her brothers and sisters. I had a long conversation with her over the phone and she expressed how she wished she had the time to make sure her cats were taken care of and that she missed them. So of course I picked it back up right away determined to finish it. This way she can take cats with her and always feel like she has a piece of home! <3

The New Year started off with many people finishing up their projects after the holidays and also starting new projects for the year!  One thing for sure, crocheters are prolific producers of yarn goodness!  It was tough picking from so many wonderful projects....I tried to select a variety  of projects, and to feature some people that have not been showcased elsewhere---you know, spread the love! Cheesy

Here are some of your favorites along with some projects that I thought should be featured in case you missed them! Cheesy

Congratulations to our Featured Crocheters!!

Who doesn't need another hat?  I love Balatong's own pattern for this hat!

Fedora by Gia Balatong

Wouldn't you just laugh with delight if you saw this in the woods?

Gruffalo's Child by Doylers

Beautiful stitching is one of the things that draws people to crochet. This lovely wrap is just perfect.

Oasis Wrap by johnson.mom2two

Not sure if it is a girl or boy?  How about picking a nice mix of colors that will work for either!!

Pastel Rainbow Blanket by bushbaby

**********************************
Combining crochet and pop-tabs is the Craftster way! It is a breadbasket but it could be so many other things as well!  Clever and interesting...that is what makes this project rock!

Poptab Basket by Lille

**********************************
Good grief!  I howled when I saw this!!  I grew up on Mr. T!  Nice capture of the important details that make this little guy special!

Mr. T Pig by magicfan
