I had some leftover squares from my mitered square project so saved them for a class I took on Saturday. Each April the Toronto Hookups Crochet Guild hosts a two-day retreat for its members; we meet at our normal meeting place but during the retreat the focus is on learning various techniques of interest to the members. Becky Simmons has developed a continuous-join-as-you-go method which she taught to the group. The beauty of this method is rather than have two ends from each square to weave in which Becky’s method you only have the start and end threads for the project to weave in. Ingenious! Becky has created a tutorial which you can find on her blog http://fantasticmio.com/
If you’re looking for a project just search the internet and you will find tons of patterns. I subscribe to Laying It All Out from http://www.allfreecrochetafghanpatterns.com/ and each day I receive an email with links to patterns. This is one of the patterns I found via that site, Lacy Shades of Pink Shells Afghan. I’m not the frilly type so left off the scalloped edging.
