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!

I am so excited to finally be able to talk about the secret project I have been working on with Lisa from The Wee House of Crochet! Back in February we started designing a beautiful crochet blanket using Womens Institute yarn, to be released as a CAL by Hobbycraft!

A yarn bundle will be available on the Hobbycraft website from next Thursday at the bargain price of £24 and we have launched a Facebook group, click HERE to come along and join, hope to see you there!

Working on the POW! blanket

I’m still working my way through my many unfinished objects, I have binned some, reclaimed the yarn from some, used some for other purposes and actually finished a few.

The next project I have picked back up to complete is affectionately known as the POW! blanket, I started it a while ago and got through one colour repeat before my usual blanket boredom set in (I’ve come to realise that I need to do a little blanket then swap to another project).

The yarn I’m using is Womens Institute DK from Hobbycraft. It’s always on 3 for 2 so it’s a really good option for big blankets!

I mentioned that I had re purposed some of my UFOs, Lisa from The Wee House of Crochet had the great idea to contact @AprilsLawUK on twitter and ask if we could make some squares to decorate The Hugging Tree that gets yarn bombed in the memory of April Jones. Our whole crochet group got involved, we all pulled out squares we had stashed and even managed to make a few at the table on Saturday.
