Wednesday Facebook Fan Favorite…Week 24

Have you ever thought of your crochet season??  That’s when you tend to crochet more… mine is September-April… That’s not saying I don’t crochet the rest of the year… But, those colder months I have some sort of desire to work on things that keep me warm!!  I can see that in our Facebook Fan Favorite Series...  Each week over the last few months, there has been way more of you talking about and sharing these Daily Free Pattern finds…   This weeks winner had almost 2000 comments, likes and views all on its own… And many of the other weekly finds had close to the same!!  So here is the weekly Facebook Fan Favorite…

Patchwork Purse by Patons

Patchwork seems to be a hot trend this winter and if you are a bag/purse collector this stylish  design may be just right for you!

If you are new to our Facebook segment,,,  Each day I present a Daily Free Pattern Find that I have found while browsing the internet…  The winner is selected by your views, comments, likes and shares!  Also, Past segments (and there are tons of Free Patterns) are stored in my Facebook Photo Library…  There are now 2 Photo Albums for this series,,, One album for 2013 Free Pattern Finds and a new 2014 Album…

Weekend WIP’s… CAL Show and Tell time!!

I love Friday’s!!!  It means the start of my Weekend WIP’s…  This weekend I will once again be working on our Crochet-a-Long Afghan,,, The one thing about working on an afghan is that it usually feels so calming to work on… I love getting into the rhythm of row after row of an afghan!!!  I am so happy with my colors from Vanna’s Choice and the way it feels…

How is your CAL coming along… Did you finish Week 1’s assignment??   I can’t wait to see all the Granny Squares later today on our Facebook “Show and Tell“!!!!  I have seen a few and I love your color choices…One of our friends chose her yarn from the inspiration of her beautiful Stained Glass Fireplace Screen… Another chose muted colors and I hear there is even a solid afghan in the mix!!!!

So hop over to Facebook at 5 pm EST to show off your Granny Squares!!  I will have a specific post titled “CAL Show and Tell” pinned to the top of my Facebook page… Just post your pictures there!!!  If you dont have any pictures,,, you can just give us a shout out  about your squares…  And if you aren’t participating… Stop by to see what all our friends are doing!!

It’s not to late to start the CAL…  I am posting Week 2 Instructions Saturday morning,,, But you could get Week 1 and Week 2 done in just a few days if you want…

.. Happy Crocheting
