The pattern previously mentioned that I was going to try out was a nice concept, however, it's not for me. It contained a lot of Single Crochet stitches and I found it too tedious. In my article on Hubpages, Making A Crochet Afghan, I outlined the process I go through before making a crochet project. If it contains a lot of stitches that I don't like then I won't make it. I enjoy crochet but too much Single Crochet and I'll never finish the item.
As an additional update, I've been steadily stitching away on the Think Spring afghan. I'll be posting the final project soon and even giving the pattern!
