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.
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.
This is so pretty! Did you chose your colours and yarn or were they recommended by the CAL?
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!

My goodness! They must have so much time or be really speedy!
