  • So exciting! We have a dreary, rainy night here in CT, so it will be wonderful to stay cozy indoors working on the new squares. Thanks!

  • Hmmm, I have restarted the first square this week several times, not looking anything like the photo. Have to take a break and then try one more time, seems like I am following the steps correctly, but I am doing something wrong…

  • These squares were the easiest ones yet! I managed to get them done by Monday night. I can’t wait to see what the new squares will be for Friday…As someone said, Friday’s are an exciting crochet day now!
