    Attic24 Woodland Blanket CAL

    http://attic24.typepad.com/weblog/2017/11/woodland-blanket-cal-introduction.html http://attic24.typepad.com/weblog/2017/12/woodland-blanket-cal-qa.html It looks like there are several people that are going to participate in this CAL that begins on Friday, January 5. I'm really bad about procrastinating, so I thought if we had a thread to share our progress, maybe I'll keep on track. http://attic24.typepad.com/weblog/woodland-ripple.html http://attic24.typepad.com/weblog/2018/01/woodland-blanket-cal-part-1.html http://attic24.typepad.com/weblog/2018/01/woodland-blanket-cal-part-2.html http://attic24.typepad.com/weblog/2018/01/woodland-blanket-cal-part-3.html http://attic24.typepad.com/weblog/2018/01/woodland-blanket-cal-part-4.html http://attic24.typepad.com/weblog/2018/02/woodland-blanket-cal-part-5.html http://attic24.typepad.com/weblog/2018/02/woodland-blanket-cal-part-6.html http://attic24.typepad.com/weblog/2018/02/woodland-blanket-cal-part-7.html http://attic24.typepad.com/weblog/slipstream-edging.html

    Starting September 1st

    ohhh boy I can hardly wait!!! Tomorrow I am hosting the year long Granny Stripe Temperature Blanket. I have never made one and I wanted my blanket to be nice and comfortable. These are the colors I chose for different temp's. Holly Berry Real Teal Turqua Aruba Sea Lilac Violet Mango Spring Green Pretty N Pink Cherry Red Pumpkin Blue Hawaii Lavender Hot Pink Light Raspberry Chianti As you can see I LOVE lots of bright and cheerful colors, lol. If anyone would want to join in, feel free to join, the link is in my signature. We also have other smaller projects, Since the Temperature Blanket is year long, I was thinking of having a holiday CAL starting October 1st. I already have Halloween projects listed, of course you do not have to do all of them, whichever ones you feel comfortable to do. But even if you don't want to join the group, I will be posting progress pictures of the blanket as it comes along. Any and all advice or comments are welcome. I love this community BTW this is a close up of the stitches used in the Granny Stripe Pattern. Hugs, Kim
  4. Crochetville has a new charity that we'll be supporting through a year-long crochet-along in 2017, but we're going to go ahead and get started a little early. Crocheted (and knitted) knockers are super-quick and easy to make. We hope you'll join us in making some of these Most of us probably know a woman who has undergone a mastectomy or a lumpectomy that was so deep it left her breast permanently misshapen. Most of us probably don’t think about how expensive, heavy, and uncomfortable traditional breast prosthetics can be. Knitted Knockers offers a perfect solution to this problem: crocheted and knitted knockers. https://youtu.be/LVGwgUt4ZFk Handmade knockers are soft, light, and very comfortable. They can even be used in a regular bra, taking on the shape and feel of a real breast. They can be stuffed a little or a lot, depending on the woman’s preference. They can be used to replace the look of a complete breast or used to fill the gap in a breast that is left uneven from the other breast. Knitted Knockers are provided for free to any woman who wants a set (or even just one). As the organization gets more and more publicity, the demand is growing, growing, growing. More and more people are needed to help make and distribute Knitted Knockers. Crochetville is stepping up to the plate to be a collection point and a distribution point to clinics and support groups in the greater Huntsville/Madison area of north Alabama. We invite all of our forum members and Facebook page fans to consider making some knockers and then sending them our way. If you are local to the north Alabama area, you are invited to join us for monthly meetings to stitch and stuff knockers. These don’t take long to make. You’ll be able to complete a pair during our meeting. Keep reading for information on how you can help Crochetville help women in need of affordable, comfortable breast prostheses! Help Us Make Knockers The Knitted Knockers organization prefers that everyone use their approved patterns and yarns to make the knockers. One thing to remember when making crocheted knockers: they are thicker than knitted knockers, so it’s very important to use a soft yarn no heavier than DK / #3 weight. List of Approved Yarns Link to Crochet Pattern Link to DPN Knitting Pattern Link to Magic Loop Knitting Pattern Huntsville/Madison/North Alabama: Join Us for Making Knockers When: Sunday, December 18, 2016 Time: 1:30 – 4:30 pm Where: Madison Public Library, 130 Plaza Blvd, Madison, AL 35758 Where to Send Knockers Crochetville 103 Scarlet Oak Circle Harvest, AL 35749 Fun Video: Journey of a Knitted Knocker to Its New Home Check out this fabulous video to see the home office’s weekly meeting to log in, stuff, and distribute the knitted knockers they receive. https://youtu.be/0hGXw06WB_0 Running Knocker Total If you make any knockers, whether you send them to Crochetville, Knitted Knockers, or distribute them somewhere else, please let us know! We'll keep a running total of how many knockers Crochetville is able to contribute to women who have undergone mastectomies and lumpectomies. Sent to Crochetville: Sent to Knitted Knockers: Distributed Elsewhere: Amy and Donna and the Knitted Knockers organization thank you for your support, as does every woman who is able to receive a free pair of crocheted or knitted knockers made by your loving hands.

    Baah! Yarns CAL/KAL

    Baah! Yarns and Needlecraft Cottage, a LYS in San Diego, are pairing up to offer a Yarn of the Month Club for crocheters and knitters. Every month from June through November, a new kit will be released with your choice of a knit or crochet pattern and one skein of Baah Yarns La Jolla yarn in the color of your choice. You can sign up for the entire series, or for individual months. You do not need to live in San Diego to participate - we will ship you your kits free of charge! Visit http://www.needlecraftcottage.com for more information. We will also be hosting a crochet-along for each crochet pattern here. Right now we have way more knitters than crocheters signed up. As the designer of the crochet patterns, I would love to see more crocheters take part! Anne
  6. ** THIS CAL HAS ENDED ** Hi all! I'm hosting a Summer Fun Crochet of my Pacific Beach Bag. I just love this design so much! It has great texture and unique handles that are quick and easy to make. The best part is, you don’t need to line it! There are also some great prizes to be won. You can get all the important details on my blog here: http://crochiq.com/summer-fun-crochet-along/ PS. I'm hosting the event in a Facebook group, but participants can also share progress pics and post questions in this thread. - Harlee

    HELLO FROM FT. WAYNE, INDIANA

    I am Shanita Am 45 and I find myself crocheting all the time, at home, at work, on the weekends. Early mornings and late nights. I have joined almost every crochet site I come across and am always looking for new and interesting patterns to work on. In the last two months I have completed 5 afghans and have to in the works right now. Hoping to meet interesting people here and have some fun crocheting.

    FiberArts Cafe Shawl CAL

    Starts June 21st, 2014 and if you can come by the shop, we will start at1 pm. Spring & summer is here and a nice crocheted shawl for those cool evenings or air condition spaces would be great to have, especially because you made it yourself! You can choose from two patterns: V-Stitch & Scallop Shawl: http://www.redheart.com/files/patterns/pdf/LC4100.pdf Lion Brand free pattern library: http://www.lionbrand.com/printablePatterns/WildFlowerShawl.pdf Both patterns are intermediate that with help most can do either of these patterns. I made a few changes (of course) when I made my V-stitch & scallop shawl. I used Bamtastic yarn from Plymouth (a nice bamboo & nylon mix which adds bounce to my shawl) and a "F" hook. It took three balls. This allowed me to shorten the number of rows needed for the body to 54 rows before adding my scallop trim. For the Wild Flower Shawl I used Saucon Sock from Kraemer Yarns. It's a cotton, acrylic & nylon sock yarn with about 231 yds per skein. The yarns are available at most local yarn shops. If needed they are available from my shop @ 856.669.1131. Because there is 430 yds per skein of Saucon Sock yarn I will half the skein for all colors (except black), and half the cost as well.
  10. Welcome to 2013! May this year be better than last! This Snowflake CAL was born about five years ago, and the goal is to make at least one snowflake every Monday (or whatever day of the week is best for you), with the goal of 52 snowflakes by Christmas, more than enough to decorate your tree with plenty leftover to gift. All participants are welcome and encouraged to post links to their own patterns and/or pictures throughout the year to keep us all enthused and motivated. Please help keep this thread alive by sharing your work!Snowflakes make us drool! Throughout the years, participants have asked if they must stiffen flakes, if they can use yarn instead of thread and how to do specific stitches and/or patterns. You may make your snowflakes with whatever fiber you choose. You may even make them with embroidery floss, plarn or ribbon! Stiffen them if you like, and don't if that's not your cup of tea. Feel free to ask questions here any time, and someone here is sure to try to help. Many snowflakers will pitch in and help whenever anyone has a question. Ravelry has a snowflake group here, and a new Yahoo group will be starting soon. I will update this post and add the link as soon as it is available. Let's cover the world with a blanket of snow that doesn't cause frost bite! Happy 2013! And let it snow, let it snow, let it snow! Here is the best list of free snowflake links I know of. Here is the list of 2008 snowflakes. Here is the list of 2009 snowflakes. Here is the thread for the 2010 CAL. Here is the thread for the 2011 CAL. Here is the thread for the 2012 CAL.

  11. Welcome to a new year! I hope you had a great Christmas and at least one day off to breathe and relax! This CAL was born about four years ago, I think, and encourages snowflake aficionados to make at least one snowflake every Monday (or whatever day of the week is best for you), with the goal of 52 snowflakes by Christmas, more than enough to decorate your tree with plenty leftover to gift. Last year, I added my new pattern each week to the CAL to keep the thread from getting buried and lost. Maintaining a weekly list is overwhelming for anyone, so this Crochet-A-Long is evolving yet again. All participants are welcome and encouraged to post their own patterns and/or pictures throughout the year to keep us all enthused and motivated. Please help keep this thread alive by sharing your work! Throughout the years, participants have asked if they must stiffen flakes, if they can use yarn instead of thread and how to do specific stitches and/or patterns. You may make your snowflakes with whatever you choose. You can even make them with embroidery floss, plarn or ribbon! Stiffen them if you like, and don't if that's not your cup of tea. Feel free to ask questions here any time, and someone is sure to try to help. Many snowflakers will pitch in and help whenever anyone has a question. Hopefully this CAL has not seen its glory days and instead will continue to grow. Let's cover the world with a blanket of snow that doesn't cause frost bite! And PLEASE share photos of your snowflakes! Snowflake photos make us drool! Happy 2012! And let it snow, let it snow, let it snow! Here is the best list of free snowflake links I know of.

  12. For those of you who don't know, at the recent STITCHES South event in Atlanta, Crochetville and Red Heart Yarns had a joint booth, with Crochetville selling yarn for Red Heart. The booth was an outstanding success, and we'll be repeating the effort at both Chain Link/Knit and Crochet show conferences this year as well as the STITCHES events. Since we're selling Red Heart yarns, I need to make a whole bunch of garments featuring those yarns to wear in the booth. I just finished making the Relaxed Cardi free pattern available from Red Heart: I finished it in only 4 days. You can click that link to download the pattern pdf or you can download directly from this thread as well: LW2357.pdf. (Thanks to Kathleen Sams of Red Heart for giving us permission to host the pattern in this thread.) I made my version in Red Heart Boutique Midnight yarn (6 skeins for size small) in colorway Serenade with a size H/8 (5mm) hook. Photos © Amy Shelton and Crochetville. These photos may be pinned on Pinterest or shared on Facebook. The pattern calls for Red Heart Boutique Changes yarn in colorway Granite: Photo © Red Heart Yarns. Used with permission. We'd love for you to join us and make your own version of this garment, especially featuring Red Heart yarns. Suitable Red Heart Yarns: You may want to use any of the following Red Heart yarns, available directly from Red Heart. Photos © Red Heart Yarns. Used with permission. Boutique Swirl Boutique Changes Artesano Midnight Magical Share Your Photos: Please share photos of your finished garment or garment-in-progress with us in this thread. If you've already completed a Relaxed Cardi, please share photos with us. Be sure to let us know the following information: Garment size made Hook size used Yarn name and color used Amount of yarn used I can't wait to see everyone's finished garments!
