The 2014 Moogly Afghan Crochet-a-Long: Block #21!

We’re down to the last 4! I’ll have some joining ideas for you next week, and I guess I’d better get to the ends on the ones I skipped weaving in… and blocking… But I can’t wait to see all your finished afghans! And thank you to those who filled out the survey as well – I’ve got a good idea of what we’ll be doing in 2015, so I’ll be planning that out over the next couple of months. Remember too that the very last square will be released a day early, on a Wednesday, due to American Thanksgiving. But if this is the first you’ve heard of the 2014 Moogly Afghan Crochet-a-Long, then start HERE to read how it works – and plan on joining in next year!

Hookin On Hump Day #80 – Link Party for Crochet and Knitting!

I promised an announcement last round, and here it is – Hookin On Hump Days is moving! Well, half of it is moving.

Sara from My Merry Messy Life started Hookin On Hump Days way back in 2012! (Check out one of the first ones ever HERE!) Then when she when she had her 3rd child, she brought me on as co-hostess. And now she’s moving on! She’s been a wonderful person to work with and I wish her only the best. My Merry Messy Life will continue to be a great resource for green living and crafting, but this is the last round that Sara will be involved with.

So she is passing the torch to me… and starting next round I’ll be sharing it with Kara from Petals to Picots! We’ll be going over the rules and working on a new logo, and making the party our own. And it’s going to be more yarn focused as well! So while it’s sad to see Sara go, I think great new things are in store for Hookin on Hump Day on Moogly and Petals to Picots! In the meantime, let’s get started with this round!
