I plan on picking this book up at lunchtime today (I think I even have a coupon!).  So my plan is to tackle at least one square tonite since my daughter is at her dad's parent's house for dinner.  I'm so excited- I'm finally gonna have a super-huge afghan!!!!!!

OnePinkHippo, I love the colors you used. So soft-looking!

And, those CSS Brites were way out of my comfort zone when I bought them for the 2009 12" CAL! But, they've since grown on me. Grin I actually don't have too much leftover yarn, and will probably use most of it up for the border of that blanket. So, I may have to buy some more Wink

Thanks craftADDchick! I can't wait to see your FO. (Ha, did I already say that?  Lips sealed The suspense!)

I'm just ahead of ya'als.  Wink (129: Anemone)



I can get one done in about an hour so why not? I need 24 six inchers anyway.

I made another willow the other night and I want to make 6 blocks a month so that it will be a nice big afghan. I was going to do the ravelry 6 inch crochetalong too, but I'm having trouble understanding the pattern. So right now my plan is to do another willow and two more castle's end squares.

i'll hang around for the bonus squares, i may not do all of them
i'm teaching a friend to crochet and we decided that a new blanket each would be nice so we're planning on doing a square a week
i'm looking through the various CAL threads for nice looking squares that aren't too tricky for a newbie, i'll try and remember to post pics in the relevant threads of our completed squares

Selnith, have you looked at the 50+ Crochet Washcloth-along? There are some patterns there that could be morphed into nice looking squares if you added a bit of a border. I just taught a co-worker how to crochet and she's working on dishcloths to learn the stitches. At the rate she's going, she'll be a better crocheter then me by the time the school year ends! Wink

I made another willow and another castle's end. I know they don't really complement each other, but I'm planning on making a bunch of very different blocks over the course of the year. Also I had to do a grey and red one because they are my college colors LOL.

Castle's End
