    So excited about the extra time AND the extra drawings. I already gifted away the Ocean Waves so I am ready to begin anew! The Ocean Waves was my first. I just love seeing all the creative choices of color when the photos start coming in. Bring it on!

    Can’t wait to see what this afghan crochet challenge will be. I really enjoyed to Ocean Waves Challenge even though I missed the deadline. I will be away from June 28 to July 7, so I will have some catching up to do. I am sure this will be a good one. Thanks Mikey for making it an all summer long one. Will give me lots of time to finish it.

    Awesome! I am still working on your last afghan challenge (being a teaching is too exhausting so my creative outlets sometimes have to be put on hold). Now I can share that project for this challenge…thanks bunches.

    I enjoy seeing everyone’s work and projects. My mom taught me how to crochet and this has been something only her and I share – which makes it special. She’s so proud of the things I’ve done on my own. I’m running out of room for afghans I make, and for some reason I feel slightly embarrassed to just give them away. What if they don’t like crocheted items? or what if that person doesn’t really like it, etc….the list can go on. Does anyone have ideas of what I can do with so many blankets?

      Hi Martha, WhileI don’t know where you live, there are possibly agencies in your area that would accept them. You could find a homeless shelter in your area. Or home for young girls who are pregnant and for whever reason have no place to live but there. Or a womens shelter (where women sometimes go to get away from abusive situations).

    I am waiting “not very” patiently for the challenge pattern to be posted. This will be my first challenge and I am looking forward to it. It is time to use up some of the mountain of stash that I have!! Love your site!!! I have learned so much from you. Thanks, Mikey!

    Can’t wait to start. I think this is a great challenge as I need to crochet a blanket with a name in it for a friends daughter who is pregnant and due in October.

    This will be my first challenge as well. Can you have more than one entry per household? My husband crochets as well and he may want to get in on the too. I am really excited! I never put my crochet away for the summer, that is what the air conditioner is for…lol. Looking forward to see what the pattern will be….( it feels like Christmas )…..too excited?

    So excited! I’ve not looked into the challenges before assuming they’ve been for North American residents only. I hope I’m lucky enough to win as we don’t have Red Heart here in Australia so I usually need to buy bulk lots of yarn to justify the shipping.

    Maybe I Just might get this challenge done in time. Can’t wait to find out what the challenge is gonna be.

    Will be in on this one. I came onto crochet crowd two weeks into it. Well , i pulled together color ideas from my yarn stash. Got it done two days late but had fun anyway. Learn a new stitch “the frog”, got to be an expert at it. —– Have had the afghan in my hall closet waiting to be given away, just like making thing then store them to be give away. so i also have gift stash along with a yarn stash. —- Today in church, notice a young couple who has been going thru some pretty rough times latest. I am now packing it up to give to them along with some other stuff.

    Hi – Since there are 3 drawings – can you do drawings for the sizes submitted? A drawing for baby size, pattern size, and anything above pattern size (king, queen, etc..)

      We thought about it but we decided not do that as we have to separate all the photos by size, different galleries and ensure that the sizes people are telling us are accurate. We want to be transparent and tell people that we are doing three draws, they are random, so it’s anyone’s opportunity to win.

    It might be fun to have a crochet challenge with doilies or flowers instead of afghans since they are smaller and you dont need as much time, so you can enjoy summer more.

    Great idea doing it over the whole summer and I have a nephew due to be born in October so working on a baby afghan is exactly what I need to do.. I finished one for him already but you never have enough crocheted baby afghans! Thanks Mikey!
