‘Crochet a long’ so far

When I first started reading blogs there were a few crafty terms that I just didn’t understand. What was a WIP? What Is a CAL?

Well, a CAL is a ‘crochet-a-long’. You buy a kit and then the pattern is released a week at a time and you all work on it together. At least that’s the theory. If you get behind it’s not the end of the world. A WIP is a ‘work in progress’. It took me ages to figure that out!

I am really enjoying doing the Scheepjes CAL called Hugge designed by Kirsten Ballering. It’s been great to have a timetable to stick to and I’ve learnt how to do bobble stitches and surface crochet. img_0821

This is the tension square that you start with to work out your hook size – and the following pictures are the CAL so far. Unbelievably, I am up to date. I’m loving doing cross stitch onto crochet.

    1. The kits come in three main colour ways – there are a couple of limited editions that sold out immediately. One was a very light pastel that I really liked but I thought it would pick up marks while I worked it. A few people in the facebook group for the CAL are doing more than one kit at the same time!
