Christmas is… CAL completed

I can’t believe the second CAL I have designed with Lisa from The Wee House of Crochet is complete! We are starting to get some gorgeous photos of the blanket on our Facebook page and I couldn’t wait any longer to share some of them 🙂

There are so many beautiful colourways being posted as well as lots of the Happy Wishes & Snowflake Kisses bundle and the Crisp Skies & Full of Surprise bundle. So fantastic 😀

In other news we only have a couple of rooms left for The Crochet Sanctuary in February! What could be better than a weekend full of crochet, food, luxury accommodation and fun! It’s a perfect Christmas gift… even if you buy it for yourself! Drop us an email at hello@thecrochetsanctuary.co.uk for more info.

Christmas is… the CAL is live!

I’m so excited that our new CAL for Knitcraft is live on the Hobbycraft blog! Myself and Lisa had so much fun designing it, even though we had a limited time to get it done! (this was because we had no intentions of doing a Christmas CAL this year but the lovely members of our Facebook group really wanted it!)

Hobbycraft have listed two different bundles on their website, Happy Wishes and Snowflake Kisses which is the colourway I chose and Crisp Skies and Full of Surprise which is the second colourway Lisa chose as there was an issue with one of the colours in her first choice. Her second choice is just as gorgeous though 🙂

We are so happy with the positive reactions to the CAL and we can’t wait to see progress pics!

Christmas is… CAL

I’m so excited that the bundles for the new Knitcraft Christmas is… CAL have launched on the Hobbycraft website today. I had such fun designing this blanket with my crochet partner in crime Lisa.

There wont be any pictures of the CAL released until the first part of the pattern comes out on the 3rd of November, but I promise this graphic represents the blanket really well. I’m so excited! The CAL will be released in 6 parts so you have plenty of time to finish before Christmas!

Sweet Caroline mini CAL

I’m really loving the new mini CAL from Helen Shrimpton! Every time I pick it up I start singing though lol.

The idea behind it is to use up all those little balls of leftovers in your stash, however I decided to pull out one of the Knit Purl yarn packs I picked up in Hobbycraft a while ago (on sale for £5, bargain!) I was just to eager to get started and I have that many oddments I could of been there forever choosing a colour combo.

I’m only using five of the colours – the first, third and fifth balls in the top row and the first two in the bottom row. I’ve completed the first part of the pattern and the second part was released on Friday so I’m hoping to get on with it later on! I’m going to make it into a cushion as suggested, and I’m thinking about making a second one in pinks for my craft room
