Another CAL (lord help me)

So as we have seen, I am pretty rubbish at being organised with CALs. I mean, the Last dance on the beach took me forever and the Pick and Mix blanket still hasnt been started but I feel optomistic with this one.

Isnt it a beauty? Its called the Hook and Learn blanket.
The idea is that it uses 12 different stitches in different blocks so is a real sampler blanket.
Anyways, I got my inspiration whilst I was cuddled up on the sofa surrounded by crocheted blankets reading my copy of Simply Crochet Magazine. There are 2 yarn choices shown on the page – one in Scheepjes River Washed and one in Colour Crafter. And then I remembered I had loads of colour crafter left from my Last Dance on the Beach blanket. 5 and a half balls worth to be precise.

Its only a 9 ball blanket all told so I would only need to do a top up shop for supplys. This could be a great way to use it all up and to enjoy making amother blanket without much more financial outlay! One of the things I really enjoyed about my last CAL was learning so many new stitches! So off I trundled to wool warehouse and picked up 4 more balls. This is what I got. (The 4 at the top)

I love purple but dont want it to be exactly the same colour as my Last Dance blanket. So I added some teals and turquoises to the mix.

Dont they look lovely together? I cant wait to see how it works out. And hey, maybe I will even keep up with this CAL for a change!

          1. No your right it did start in februarys issue – I juzt havent started yet as I need to finish my jumper. But i aim to have the first block done by the time the next issue arrives

  1. You have inspired me to do this CAL too; I also have staff of Scheepjes Color Crafter left around from another project… however the colours are much more random than yours so no idea how it will turn out. It’s my first CAL too… looking forward to the challenge x
