I am hosting a crochet square exchange

Okay friends from Red heart, Here we go, I am starting this on my blog for people to sign up for the square exchange. Here are the "rules"
1. You MUST post to this post in order to be involved.
2. You must e-mail me your name, and mailing information. My e-mail is
3. You MUST use Red Heart Super Saver Yarn.
4. You MUST post at least two colors to chose from, so hopefully we can use stash.
You will make 5 squares for five different people, so your not going to be mailing all together, they will be 8 inch squares, and I know personally most fit in a standard envelope, with two stamps.
So, the DEADLINE to sign up is October 21st at noon, I will assign everyone their squares to make by 5pm October 21st. Now IMPORTANT PLEASE READ the squares MUST be received by November 15th. So if you are not sure you can commit to making 5 squares and mailing them out in time please refrain from signing up. This is so I don't end up making a bunch of squares because people didn't reach their commitment. I feel this is plenty of time to make up 5 squares, heck I would only need a day, but I have more time than the normal person.
You can use ANY pattern, and I will recommend you to look at CrochetPatternCentral for patterns if you don't have any yet, here is the link to different 8 inch squares.
If I forgot anything let me know, okay, and by the way I UNDERSTAND if an emergency happens, or maybe you don't have the colors you need, and want a different assignment so you can use what you have. I am hoping at the end, we will each be able to put together a RedHeart friendship afghan. Most important, HAVE FUN!

P.S the more people we get involved, we could always make and recieve more if this goes over well.
