As you know Friday just gone knitcraft released the first part of @lyndascraftroom and my CAL ‘Tea on the green’ well, considering it’s knitcraft/hobbycraft first CAL and ours I think it’s going pretty well!! We’ve had one or two tiny hiccups but I’m really pleased with it so far. The first Block A was always going to make it or break it, it has a real mixture of stitches in there, we wanted it to be suitable for both beginners and those a bit more experienced. Once the first person completed the first block there was a sigh of absolute relief!!! We’ve had them working with dc’s, htr’s, tr’s, dtrs, ttrs, bpdc’s, bobble stitches and turning circles into squares!!
Along the way we’ve had so many lovely comments!! I think because both Lynda and I spent so long on it we forgot just how nice it is, so to read nice comments is so heart warming. I won’t lie, a few have brought a bit of a tear 😂!!!
At the moment we’ve got 780 people following on Facebook, I’ve not a clue how many are working on it outside of that, but I was jumping for joy at 200!! We’ve got people joining us every hour of the day, some are even in Australia and the US! So people joining through the night too. Anyway we’ve had some fabulous Block A’s completed, thought I’d share a few 💞💞
It’s like wow!!! We designed that!! And people like it!
Anyway, I’ve also been making YouTube tutorials, never in my life have a made a tutorial, but there’s a first time for everything! I don’t even know how to edit them so they’re rough, just me a hook and yarn.
In between all that I’ve also been working on Helen shrimptons 🎶sweet caroline🎶 I love it! I love Helen shrimpton she’s just an absolute legend!!! Here’s my part two finished using scheepjes catona
