Announcement: Mandala Madness CAL

Maybe you are thinking that I am a bit more quiet on my blog the usual, and you would be right. I have been working hard on not one, but three projects for next year. Time to announce the first one!

Starting on March 17, 2016 is a crochet along designed by Helen Shrimpton from Crystals & Crochet and sponsored by Scheepjes. Helen has a thing for mandalas and hence it won’t surprise you that the CAL is named Mandala Madness after the giant mandala we are going to be making. The actual CAL is a secret, but Helen has released a sneak peek up to part 3. There are yarn packs available in Scheepjes Stone Washed XL and Scheepjes Merino Soft.

I am currently working hard on the videos for the CAL, here my peek up to week 2. All videos will be available through my YouTube channel as well as my blog where all videos will be grouped on this dedicated video page.

I will be using Scheepjes Cotton 8 and Sunkissed yarns which are both sport weight cotton yarns. These yarns are strong, durable and incredibly versatile and I have an enormous amount of this wonderful yarn in my stash. I don’t really have a color plan, just taking it week by week basically. Here my “toolbox” for this CAL 😀

I will keep you posted when more info becomes available.

With love,

Esther

  1. Will we be able to save the tutorial as we all crochet at our own available time and space, and are learning stitches along the way, and for me they work better than videos. Thank you so much. Lena
