I hope you are all enjoying the July Cocoon Cardigan CAL! I’m still crocheting my large granny square to the correct size for my Cocoon Cardigan but I am hoping to be ready to share my progress with you by the end of this week! The Holiday last week has put me a little bit behind 😉 Slowing down and enjoying time with my family and friends put me into relaxed ‘vacation’ mode and I have been struggling to get back on track 🙂
But whether or not I am done the July Project it is still time to decide which project we will make for August’s Summer Hat CAL. 2017 CAL!
To cast your vote, use the widget at the end of this post. Click on the little heart ♥ in the upper right-hand corner of the photo of the project you want to make and that is all you need to do! The widget will tally all of the votes together and choose the project with the most votes.
Remember to add our Group CAL hashtag, #CALOFTHEMONTH2017 to the tags on your Ravelry Project Pages so we can pop over to see how you are progressing as well! Here’s where they will show up: Ravelry #CALOFTHEMONTH2017 Projects
If you are new to the Choose Your Own 2017 CAL Adventure, here is what it is about:
For our Crochet With Us CAL Group we have decided to do CALs a little bit differently this year. We have decided to go with the theme of “Choose Your Own 2017 CAL Adventure.”
We polled the CWU CAL group to ask you which types of projects you were most interested in and from your answers we are going to create 1 year of monthly CALs you can participate in. Each month we will give you 3 projects to choose from and you get to vote for your favorite. This will decide the pattern we will make for the month.
The voting will begin on 2nd Saturday of the month prior. You will have 1 week to vote for your favorite project. We will then announce the CAL project on the 3rd Saturday of the month. You will have about 1 week to gather the supplies you will need to make the project and will have the entire month to work on the project, create your project pages in Ravelry, and share your progress in the event created in the CWU CAL Facebook group.
