The Crochet Good Stitch Day Afghan might look familiar if you participated in the 7 Day Sampler Afghan Stitch Along.  This is the Wednesday Square, but just a little bit more fun.

Sometimes, coming up with a name for a project is harder than actually crocheting the project!  Since it was based on the smaller, sampler square, Wednesday Afghan seemed appropriate, but kind of boring.  The team loves to brainstorm ideas and Michael popped up the name, Good Stitch Day Afghan since it was a morph of the square, and he somehow associated it with the Black Eyed Peas song, I Gotta Feeling.  Tonight’s gonna be a good night!

When you upload your project to The Crochet Crowd Stitch Social Group or Instagram, feel free to tag me so I can see what you have crocheted.  Follow me on Instagram @ jeannestein or on Facebook.  My designs can also be saved in your Ravelry favorites by following me HERE.

I am excited to be part of The Crochet Crowd team. I have been crocheting for 40+ years. I am also a big geek and an internet addict. I met Mikey and Diva Dan while onboard a crochet cruise in March 2015, and the rest is history. I hope to help inspire fellow crocheters.
