National Crochet Month 2009

It is halfway through the month of March already and I have been celebrating the annual "National Crochet Month" that we started many years ago for the members of CGOA. I am enjoying a "Crochet-A-Long" with my Friends at Ravelry and the party group, NatCroMo. Each day our extremely creative Kaet sends us a little clue and we use that to create our free form piece. If it is anything like last year, it is just entirely amazing how crochet can turn out to look so wonderful, different and exciting at the hands of each individual following the same prompts!Here's what I have done so far.
