Atlanticus CAL (2018) 2019 V2 Scrumptious Lush – Basic Info

I’ve decided to make two of these. Mostly because of the yarn I found for it. I am working through all 4 skeins of this at once. As the color changes for each skein. I switch skeins until all of that color has been worked into the piece. I expect this to be a LONG term project as there are 4000M of yarn to work. If you count both versions it’s 8000M of yarn.

I am working towards getting in around 4-5 rows per week. There are around 116 rows to this piece. We’ll see how much I have left when I’m done!

I’ll keep updating progress with more posts.

Atlanticus CAL (2018) 2019 Passion Fruit Melt – Basic Info

I saw this as a finished work online right after the CAL was nearly finished online. I was interested because I had been working on another mandala like piece. Then saw someone who made another pattern with the Sheepjies Whirl and I fell in love with the yarn. So, I decided to make two (2)!

The Story Of A Doily

My grandmother Ruth taught me to crochet around about 2007. I started with granny squares and then put it down for a few years. Then I met Julia. She strongly encouraged my proclivity for needle work. Now I knit and crochet as an extreme pastime. I have LOTS of projects going. There are some special exceptions to the general pile of projects. One of them was this completed project.
