New CAL is coming soon…

Today is the day! Can you keep the secrets? For me it’s an unbelievably difficult task. But I have been keeping a secret for almost 8 months working very hard behind the scenes. And today I can finally tell you: new CAL is coming soon!!! I have been working on this new design since early January. Lots of frogging and remaking was involved, but I am very happy with the final results. A full reveal will be waiting for you in a week here on my blog (so stay tuned not to miss it). And today I will show you a few sneak peeks.

What will it be? It will be a wrap! A large, very soft and draping, cozy wrap made with two very different Scheepjes yarns: Spirit and Catona (reviewed HERE and HERE). Though I can’t take the full credit for this idea to mix two different yarns. When we were chatting with Esther of It’s All In A Nutshell a while ago I told her about my creative idea, and I also expressed my doubts about which yarn to choose.

We have discussed it and came to a conclusion that since it’s a large wearable project, a light weight yarn with good yardage should work best for it. And Esther said: “Maybe you should look into Spirit?” And then: “Oh, and you can actually combine it with Catona. That will give a nice mixture of textures”. And I made my choice at once.

I can’t tell you much about this project right now. Let’s save some excitement for later. But what I would like you to know is that coming CAL will be a true crochet adventure. I mixed several crochet techniques together, but still tried to keep the patterns easy enough, so that Advanced beginners can try them out.

The CAL will begin on October 18th , 2017 and will run for 9 weeks. It will be FREE and each part will be released on my blog weekly. The CAL will be translated into several languages. And there will be ready kits available for purchase - produced and nicely packed by Scheepjes. The kits will be sold by local Scheepjes store as well as large retailers including Wool Warehouse (HERE)* (located in UK with international shipping). The kits will be available for sale on September 27. But you can sign up at Wool Warehouse web-site now and they will notify you by e-mail when kits are live.

  21. Will it be translated to danish?

    And will it be made up of sections seperately that will be put together at the end or will it be one large project? Just so I know whether it will be handy to make on the train to and from work or if I should plan on making it solely on the couch. 😊
