We are crocheting the afghan from the booklet 63 Easy-To-Crochet Pattern Stitches Combine to Make an Heirloom Afghan (Leisure Arts #555). It is widely available in Walmart, craft stores, online stores, and on eBay.
To join, you must fill out the Join Form. If any of your information ever changes, please fill out the Update Form. This is an ongoing crochet-along; I intend to keep it open as long as there is interest.
When you finish your afghan, please send me a photo for the gallery if you are able.

When I posted in my blog about doing the 63 Easy-To-Crochet Pattern Stitches Combine to Make an Heirloom Afghan, some of you guys said you might want to do it, too. So. . . I am now hoping to get a crochet along going. I've made an info page for it at yarntomato.com/63squares.
I will tempt you with a pretty button:

I lose things all the time! Drives me nuts! >:
I want to I want to! I just can't find my darn book!
Bwa ha ha! Resistance is futile! Seriously, though, you don't have to start right now. I am a super-slow crocheter, so I expect to be working on this a while. I spend a lot of time frogging ('cause I'm a Virgo).
You are EVIL!!!!! tempting me with buttons!
Sign me up! --Vera

I don't have a website or a blog, but thanks for thinking of me.

Tiff and everybody -- don't forget to search eBay stores -- I've gotten a lot of crochet leaflets there and it's nice to be able to just buy it and not have to bid. :rollin You have to search stores separately because those results aren't included in the regluar auction search.
Oh, and also -- Julie got hers at Walmart, Vera got hers at Michaels, and I got mine at Hancock Fabrics.
I love Wool-Ease, too!

what i find fascinating is how different chains are.
yesterday -- during my travels -- i went to joanns, ac moore, and walmart. the closest michaels wasn't on my route -- so i'll have to investigate some other time.
walmart had nothing -- other than redheart. now i don't have anything against redheart but i've kind of outgrown it let's say. joanns -- it had some stuff -- but in limited colors -- on the other hand it had gigantic skeins of bernat cotton. which is good to know. ac moore on the other hand, won the yarn competition for the day. they've really worked hard to up the quality and the quantity of their yarns. the last time i went to michaels, they didn't even have yarn. bast*rds.
ooh the piggie -- thanks pam!!!
