Exciting News for Gourmet Crochet Fans!

I have long been a fan of crochet designer Carolyn Christmas of Gourmet Crochet, so needless to say I was really excited when I found out that Carolyn has a new blog! When I heard the news I visited her blog right away and was delighted to find that she is starting off the New Year with a Mystery Crochet-a-Long for an afghan project called "Variations on a Theme". Starting Tuesday, January 5, 2010 she posted instructions for the first square and will continue to post instructions for one new square every day until the afghan project is completed. Photos of progress will be posted to a Flickr group each day, as well as posted on a Facebook discussion and a Ravelry page. How exciting is that? Even more exciting is the news that each person who participates in the Crochet-a-Long will receive an e-pattern of the finished afghan instructions at the end of the project!

You don't have to do anything special to join the crochet-a-long. Just visit her blog every day to get the patterns. Carolyn is an amazing designer so the afghan will no doubt be awesome.

  1. Yep been there and cant wait to start my three.

  2. I'm not a fan of not knowing things ahead of time; not sure why...but it bugs me. I like to see pictures, review patterns to decide what I want to make and just reading instructions to make a square and needing to come back to get the next piece would make me batty.

    I know lots of folks really enjoy this, I'm not one who likes surprises I guess. So, I'll pass, but do hope you have a great time with CAL.

    Happy Stitching.

  3. I have the first two squares done, but I'm going to have to redo the first one. I must have screwed up when counting my beginning chain because it's way too small and only has four shells across. The second one came out perfect, about 7 inches with an H hook and Red Heart yarn. I'll post the pic tomorrow on my blog.

    I'm glad somebody understands my rambling! ;)

  4. Cool, I cant wait to have a look and see what the squares are supposed to look like :o)
