This reminds me so much of my grandmother's crochet projects and I have just the bag of scraps that will work for this (just happened to be upstairs with no flood damage!)

The afghan shown on your blog is absolutely beautiful and when I saw that you were offering us a chance to win a copy of your book I thought… why not try?! Win or lose, I will be getting a copy of your book. It looks great!(You know, yo-yo's may just be tempting enough to get my 14-year old interested in crocheting. Wouldn't that be awesome!)
