A Crochet-A-Long… You decide the project!!!!

.

Happy November!  I have been tossing around the idea of having a Crochet-A-Long starting in January 2014…  Since I am like all of you yarnies… I can’t decide what it will be… I always have tons of work in progress projects!  So what better than leave it up to Viewer Choice!!!!  You all were so supportive during the voting for the final Amazing Grace Pattern poll… I thought…hmmmm… Lets do another poll!!!!

.

So here are my thoughts… Start crocheting in January…I will make a fabulous design for us…  You choose what it will be!!!!  The winning vote will determine not only the project… but also the length of time!  A blanket may take a couple of months… A hat maybe a week…  Let’s have some FUN!!!!.

Voting closes December 15th, 2013
