Don't worry! We'll keep the party going until at least 11:00 pm central time that night, so those who have to work during the day can still participate with us! And even after Donna and I go to bed, everybody else who can still keep awake can keep partying without us.

 

Just clean up after yourselves and don't leave the party room a big mess! Any yarn or hooks left out overnight will be confiscated and added to our stashes!! :lol

You know what? I bet this would also be a fabulous time for us to have special giveaways throughout the day and evening. I came back from the Chain Link conference with lots of things that many of you might be interested in winning!

I'm glad people are getting excited about this already.

 

So, has anybody picked out their project for the CAL yet?

 

I have a couple patterns I'm trying to get ready for publication, so I'll probably be working on one of those things.

I found the download for the flyer and am planning to do something at my store on Friday-probably a raffle for something crochet related-haven't decided what yet ; a sale on yarns,and maybe a crochet demo . I'll be here too. Haven't picked a project for the crochet a long, but I always have a few projects going.
