Hi everyone, I too saw this post super late, but I have already started and I am loving it!  This is going to be my first ever crochet project and I can't believe it's turning out really well!  I will have to post pics of what I have so far.  I am already thinking of making two more for mother's day!

There will always be people who say mean words  because you are different, and sometimes their minds cannot be changed. There are many more people who do not judge others based on how they look or where they are from. THOSE are the people whose WORDS truly matter.

Woo! I'm jumping in Smiley
35 weeks pregnant and I need to keep myself busy or I'll go nuts scrubbing my shower for the 5th time this week (no seriously, I've been following my husband around scrubbing EVERYTHING after him)

I'm 3 rounds into this and it's coming out great so hooray!  I'm gonna make it a baby blankie for the little one.

If I could buy the world a coke, then I would say "SCREW YOU WORLD" and go buy more fabric.

I hear ya on the cleaning!  I'm 38 weeks and have been "nesting" aka, "oh, crap, she's cleaning again" for the last couple weeks.  I might have to start one of these after getting done with the 2 round ripples that I'm working on right now.

IheartTHO, I am SO doing a shot like you did (lying outstretched) when I get my current one done for my sis. I didn't buy yarn specifically, just a stashbuster, but am using some colours she recommended.

6mm hook, (Tunisian crochet hook, I find it way easier on my wrists) and a variety of weights, but mainly worsted yarns, and some yarns held double.

Ok, I finished 1 round ripple, and started this afghan, cause I had to.  I had a light sage green and an oatmeal colored yarn that wasn't being used for anything, and put them together...and they really look nice.  Added benefit?  It'll match my couch, which has seen better days.

got tired of not working with yarn in either knit or crochet, I went back to the good old granny squares to make it seem like I'm doing something.  I was doing the square granny squares for awhile this morning, and thought i'd look thru the crochet-along to see if there were granny squares to post my wips, and came across the rectangles. 

what an interesting concept, I had just been working with the squares, sooooo... i abandoned my squares and thought i'd try the rectangles.  I think I didn't read the directions thorough enough... but I manage to fudge it ok. 

I don't like how it expands length wise faster than width wise, so i added more width wise, and it's working well for me.
