Maybe you have heard of the new hype in blogland and on FB; the Crochet Along!
I joined too and I'm using my Catania cotton stash :-)
These are the colors I'm going to use.
The Original pattern is for a blanket, but I'm going for 4 pillow covers.
I will make 2 with the stripes which are posted now each Friday and when they are the right size I will start 2 new ones with the stripes posted later on in the Crochet Along.
