Today kicks off the Weekend Celebration of my new book, Unexpected Afghans: Innovative Crochet Designs with Traditional Techniques.
So this weekend I have bribed a number of the designers in the book to blog, tweet, facebook about their design in the book. I was going to tell you what I thought of each one, but I would rather let them tell you. Keep in mind I just told them to go crazy on each of their afghans, it could have really been uh, "interesting"; but instead their projects are some of my favorite crochet projects out there. I truly hope you enjoy the little tour this weekend. At each stop (including over at Interweave), you will be able to win a free eBook copy of the book. For me, go check out the preview (below) and let me know (in a comment here, in an email, over at facebook or twitter) what project speaks to you the most. I will let CJ pick her favorite from the book on Monday and announce a winner on Tuesday.
Here are all the projects over at Flickr with each designer labeled. Please go check out these designers, you never know, you might find a new favorite or two!
