Mandala Madness CAL. When I saw the first installment, I was in love but content to watch others progress with this project. After seeing gorgeous pictures of Part 2, I could resist no longer and headed off to purchase some yarn to start my own and catch up.
I chose a cotton/bamboo blend yarn for this blanket and its lovely to work with, although it can split a little if your not careful. I've decided to keep my colour selection to this palette and inject a lot of white into the blanket. as the weeks progress.
Its quite challenging but there are plenty of step by step pictures and videos to help out and the instructions are very detailed and well written, so its easy to follow. Its run over eighteen weeks (Part Three started yesterday) and you can find all the links HERE.
I love Shelleys patterns, they are always so easy to follow and she designs such lovely squares. This CAL is great for beginners as there are no circles or fancy design elements. It was designed as a "manly" blanket to cater for the men in our lives.
There are ten fortnightly installments for this blanket and you can join up to this CAL, by following the link HERE.
And lastly, the In A Spin CAL;
You can find all the links to this CAL, on Shelley's blog, HERE.
So that's what on my hook(s) at the moment and I'm loving every minute :)
