Bernat Yarn for Mystery Afghan Crochet-Along

I love a good mystery, but not usually when it comes to my crocheting. I like to know what the end result should look like before I begin all that stitching. I've only done one other mystery project, which was this quilt, and I really enjoyed it. I recently read about Bernat's Mystery Afghan Crochet-Along over on the Bernat blog, so decided to add a little mystery to my crocheting life! I am also just about finished with my current crochet project which is the purple and pink fence rail afghan, so it was time to pick my next one. Can't let my hooks get cold! Here's the yarn I picked...

I was reading on the Bernat blog about the choices others have made in their yarns, and there are some really nice combinations out there. It will be lots of fun to see all the variations on this project once they are all revealed at the end.

The first two clues have already been posted on the Bernat blog, so I'm running a little behind. But that's the nice thing about an event like this - you can go at your own pace and check the clues when it's convenient for you. It looks like this project will be a great opportunity to learn some new stitches or revisit some old ones. I'm thinking it may also be good for beginners to work on small blocks, gain some confidence, build on their skills while learning new ones, and in the end, have a beautiful afghan to show for it.

Grab some chunky yarn and your hook and join in the fun! Once that cold winter weather comes along, you'll be glad you did!

Make sure you come back here on Friday, October 1st for the beginning of the Fall into Fall Giveaway. I'll be offering an Awesome prize for my giveaway, and over 100 other bloggers will have some great prizes to give away as well.

Happy Stitching!
