I joined a Crochet - Block of the Month - CAL. It is a great group. They post 2 - 12 inch squares and a 6 inch square each month. at the end of the year you have enough squares to put together an blanket if you wish. http://www.ravelry.com/groups/2011-crochet-block-a-month-cal
Here are the two 12 inch squares that I did for this month.
This one is Maggies square by The Crochet Dude. http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/maggies-square
The colors that I am using for my blanket are Pale green, kelly green, and deep violet. I didn't pick them out. It is the yarn that the kids got me for Christmas so we are going to see how well I can tie them all together.
I hope that you will stop in and check the group out if you like doing things like that.
Have a great week!!
