HOW THIS WORKS:
Each day I will post the first few steps of a pattern. The next day a couple more steps will be posted, and so on and so on until it's complete. When it's over everyone who participated can email your photos to have your photos posted on the the blog.
It will be interesting to see how everyone's project turns out especially since you have no idea what you're making. (not at first, anyways!)
Please invite all of your friend who enjoy crocheting! This should be a fun event for all.
Make sure you're a fan of http://www.facebook.com/crocheting so you can be updated when new steps have been posted. I will be posting the steps to the pattern on http://www.LetsCrochet.com/. I will announce on our Facebook page when the next steps have been posted.
Good luck & I can't wait to see what you all come up with!
