Spring CAL Crochet with Us #CALOFTHEMONTH2017

Banksia Shawl by Dedri Uys

Yarn: Light Fingering
Hook: 4.0 mm (G)
[328 – 437 yards (300 – 400 m)]
Size: 105 cm x 45 cm

I’ve mentioned before I’m trying to work through my stashed yarn this year so I chose to use Bernat Sox yarn from my stash for my project because it has the same weight as the yarn Dedri used, the Sprightly Sock, by Devon Sun Yarns.

I’m hoping to start working on my Baskia Shawl this weekend! How about you? What yarn are you using?

My Ravelry Project Page:

#CALOFTHEMONTH2017 May Spring Shawl Project – CWU CAL Group

What You Need To Do To Participate:

1. Create Your Project Page on Ravelry HERE and add #CALOFTHEMONTH2017 as a Tag to your project so we can see them all!

Choose Add to Favorites and Hook It! to set up your Project Page.

If you need help with this, here is a walk-through tutorial to show you how to add your Project on Ravelry. I thank you in advance for creating your project pages. It helps us keep track of the number of participants who complete their projects each month and it helps us decide which types of projects you enjoy (both for type and difficulty level!) for future Months.

2. If you need help with your CAL project, or you want to share your progress in a group setting; join us in the CWU CAL Group on Facebook! Once you have been approved to be in the CAL Group you can visit our EVENT Pages here: #CALOFTHEMONTH May Spring Shawl CAL Week 1-2 and #CALOFTHEMONTH May Spring Shawl Week 3-4.

Please note, Facebook only lets us create Events for a few weeks at a time and once they go live they disappear (poof!) from the Event Page (which makes no sense to any of us) – so we have opted to create an Event Page for every second Saturday of the month. That way when you go to the Group you can find one of the Event Pages always there (without having to search everywhere for past events) and comment on any of them for the month of the CAL – this way we can share and help each other with questions, etc. easily! You do not have to make this project last the entire month 🙂 in fact I suspect many of you will be able to complete it the first weekend! Proceed at your own pace 🙂 and have fun!

See you soon!
