Wow Carolyn, I am so excited about this Crochet-a-Long. I have long been a fan of your designs so I am positive that this is going to be one awesome afghan! I'm running behind and playing catch up as usual, but I'll be posting my squares as I catch up. I should be caught up by day 6. This is going to be so much fun. I posted this information on my blog to get the word out, I know a lot of people would hate to miss out on this.
Happy stitching everyone!

I have yet to get started. Maybe tomorrow. But Carolyn, can you tell us about how many squares there will be in case we (me anyway) want to use all one color? When I find yarn I like on sale, I sometimes buy a bunch in case I want to do something all one color! I did added you to my blog (blindedbyinsight.blogspot.com) list and hope friends will see it!

Hi Netagene,
Truth be told I've been waffling between two ways of showing off these blocks and I've just today pretty much figured out my final plan. Either will be great, but one was just going to be too difficult with too much counting! So I decided to go for fun and will be posting tomorrow instructions for edging the blocks and how to make those secondary blocks. I should also be able to do the math and figure out yarn amounts for the whole thing in one color. Next time I'll have that figured out before-hand! It's the designer in me. I can't stop changing my mind lol. Sorry to put you late but if I know you you'll be caught up in no time!
