Part of the fun of glamping is the daily round-up around the campfire, chatting and stitching with friends. We hope you’ll join us in our NatCroMo Facebook group, where we’ll be sharing daily camping recipes, campfire songs about crochet, and so much more! We’d also love to hear about your favorite things you’ve discovered on the tour and see photos of your current crochet projects.

Pretty much year round. I might swap to scarves or baby blankets in the very hottest part of the summer. Thanks for the giveaway!
I crochet blankets year round… squares or hexes in the warmer months, continuous in the cooler months. Keeps my lap comfortable! Thank you for the giveaway!
I am obsessed with making blankets. I make them all year long!
I crochet them mostly when I have a specific need — only some people are going to get that amount of time dedicated to them, so it could be anytime in the year (and most of my family birthdays are late summer/early fall).
It could be anytime but if it is one that will drape over my legs, winter would be a better time for that!
For larger afghans, I will take a summer break. I have made motifs and pieces of afghans though during warmer months. It is very easy and portable to work on pieced projects during the warmer months when I am at the ball field for my kids playing baseball.
I live somewhere it’s basically summer year round (Hawaii) but I still love crocheting blankets anytime – specifically for donating to Pine Ridge Reservation: the poorest place in the US with one of the harshest climates ?
Absolutely crochet afghans year around. I’m working on several afghan wips at this time.
I make afghans all year. I prefer to do motif Afghan s in summer.
I crochet year around, our summers are not that hot.
I crochet blankets year round as they are a go-to gift for both wedding and baby shower gifts!!!! And I do so love Amanda’s blanket designs they are a true work of art and so beautifully colored. I would love to win a copy of this book!
Usually I have at least one afghan project going year round that I pick up whenever the spirit moves me.
I crochet blankets year round. I love making baby blankets, and granny square afghans.
I’ve only made 5 bed sized afghans in the 10 years I’ve been crocheting. So I clearly take my time making them hahaha
I do. They’re my favorite thing to crochet. Thanks for the chance to win a copy of this beautiful book.
I pretty much make afghans year round. They’re my go-to project.
Another great must-have book by Amanda Perkins. She is a genious for colorful and creative motifwork. I would love this book and drule over it daily 😀
I try to crochet year-round, even the big projects. I would love to win this book. I love the colorful projects! Thanks for the chance to win!
I usually take a break from large projects in the summer months.
I make afghans year round, because that’s usually how long it takes for me to finish one 😛
I’d like to take a break! Sometimes that isn’t possible though if you have orders. Crank up the A/C and turn on a fan and crochet on! 😉
Year round. Thanks!
Thanks for the giveaway! An amazing design!
Looks like some great afghans, which are my favorite crochet project! Thanks for the chance to win.
I crochet afghans when I want to gift or for home regardless of what season it is. It doesn’t bother me to do it during summer. What matters is for whom it is.
Thank you for this beautiful giveaway.
Don’t know yet… I am a beginner and didn’t crochet any blanket… YET. I for sure would like to!
Thank you for the giveaway!
Actually, I was just thinking my new WIP for April would be an Afghan for My Bed.
I usually take a break from crocheting afghans in the summer. Late summer I focus on working on Christmas gifts.
When I’ve made afghans, I’ve done it year around. I don’t make them so much anymore, and I do pay attention now to how hot I get with something on my lap. I’m more likely to be making a shawl now. My most recent afghans were for babies.
I have only completed baby afghans, all as gifts. I have 1 UFO afghan that I am making for my own bed and will finish it some day! Yes, I work on these anytime of year, but prefer to work on them during cold months.
i crochet afghans whenever possible
I prefer to crochet blankets in the fall and winter!
I don’t crochet afghans very often, but beautiful afghan patterns could tempt me to crochet them more often.
That would be a cool book! I love very colorful everything crochet, especially afghans!
I haven’t crocheted an afghan yet, but I’d love to have this book to get me started!
I love making afghans and I will work on them anytime of year, including summer time.
I prefer to avoid making one-piece afghans in the hot summer. I discovered that preference the hard way.
I work on blankets year round. Not when it is hot in the house, but they are nice with the AC is set just a little too low for my tastes!
I crochet afghans year round. They are my favorite type of project, even though they take longer than anything else.
I crochet afghans year round!
I like the color arrangements in the patterns. Would definitely help me with yarn selection. Thanks for the giveaway.
I usually take a break, too hot here in Texas
I might work on a baby one during the summer, but I save the big ones for cooler weather.
I crochet in any season – summers in Michigan aren’t overly hot – so i would make a blanket any time of year.
I’ve only been crocheting one year but I’ve made two baby blankets, two large throws and a queen sized blanket so far and I’ve got yarn set aside for at least three more.
I’m pretty much enthralled at the idea of making oodles of blankets!
year around, I do a square here and there, between projects
I crochet all year long!
I usually leave making of afghans during the colder months-just in time for Christmas! Thank you, Susan
I take a break during the summer because it gets pretty hot here in NC.
I crochet afghans all year long
I’m lucky enough to live in an air-conditioned house, so the time of year doesn’t matter 🙂
I’ve only made one afghan so far, but I want to make more!
I’ve only made a few small afghans
Oh wow! Good question! I got back into crocheting in ’09 and can count 17 off the top of my head.
I have made about 10 with at least 3 more to make.
I love making blankets!!! I have made 15+ and started crocheting about 4 years ago. =)
Two finished crocheted afghans I made so far. One crocheted afghan is halfways, so be it time for more afgans inspiration. I love bright rainbow colors ans as I have my birthday today (yes on April Fools day, no joking) it would be fun to win this beauticul book as an extra birthday present.!
Too many to remember-at least 15-20, as gifts on Birthdays and Christmas! Thank you, Susan
Three, but I use the components in a lot of other things (squares, long strips) I make more often, so I wind up getting afghan books a lot, even when I don’t intend on making an afghan, because I like the components of enough patterns to find the book useful.
I’ve completed 8 blankets and have 2 currently in progress.
I’m fairly new to crocheting. I’ve made 3 Afghans so far, and I’m working on my 4th now.
Didn’t we already do this once? LOL total Number of afghans I’ve made in my life = 0! Not because I didn’t want to make one, but every time I made a number of granny squares I ended up using them for something else. But I really want to make one, especially in rainbow hues, so this book would be wonderful! Thanks for the second chance to win it!
I made 5 Afghan/ throws so far in my life.
I’ve never made a full afghan actually – I’ve made enough squares (I make them to donate to Pine Ridge Reservation) to make whole blankets but I have no idea how many…
I hope this is no Aprils fool :0)
not sure how many but at least 10
I make afghans almost year round, our summers are not not.
I’ve never made an afghan before. My focus isn’t that great when it comes to crocheting anything larger than a shawl. I’m not giving up, though. I’m beginning to make my first afghan using large granny squares with my friends.
I’ve made 10 or more adult-sized afghans, plus 9 or more baby afghans.
I have crocheted at least ten afghans, mostly gifts but I did save one for me. It is the warmest, coziest blanket I own. Thanks for the giveaway.
I crochet slow so I definitely haven’t made as many afghans as others. I think I’ve only made 5 or 6 since I started crocheting again in earnest a couple of years ago. Still, I love making them for charity and as gifts.
I’ve only made a couple afghans,
I never keep count of the afghans I make for others. I have been crocheting for over 40 years and besides family, other recipients include chemo patients at our local hospital whom I have never met. Just trying to wrap people in love and warmth… now I need to make a pair of baby afghans for my brand new twin boy grandbabies!
I am just crazy about crocheting, this book will be a great inspiration for me.
I honestly can’t count how many I’ve made in my lifetime. So far this year I’ve made 4.
I have made at least 10 afghans. Designs are so numerous, colors are fun to pick. Yes I would love to win, get more ideas!
I’m only a beginner, would love to make my first afghan from this wonderful book!
I’ve made loads of blankets. They are one of my favorite things to make. Thank you for re-running this contest.
As more of a newbie, I have only made 2 so far, but I am looking forward to making many more.
I have only recently returned to crochet after decades, literally! Long ago I might have made one blanket. I made lots of scarves and some granny square Christmas stockings for nieces and nephews, but not many blankets. I am now beginning the Moorland blanket by Lucy of Attic24. I also have the Celtic Tiles blanket by Lilla Bjorn Crochet on my list….can’t wait to try overlay crochet. It is certainly NOY my Grandmother’s crochet anymore! 🙂
