Hi! Happy to join in here. I am a mamma of 5 homeschooled, craft-loving, creative children. I always have too many projects going on, but was delighted to see a new crochet-along getting started.
I've begun a hexagon granny, from the cover of the Blue Ribbon Afghans from America's State Fairs: 40 Prize-Winning Crocheted Designs book. I am quite sure this pattern could be found elsewhere also, since most of the patterns in the book I have found on the internet.
It's a fun project so far.
Good luck everyone, and God Bless!
