Short message… why?  Because the weather is gorgeous at the moment and I love to go out on such days.  So… that means less time to blog.

I have currently joined several crochet-alongs.  One of the crochet-alongs (short: CAL) I joined is the Scheepjes CAL 2016 to make a gorgeous blanket (and let’s face it, there’s always room for one more.)

The blanket for this CAL was originally desinged by Marinke Slump van A Creative Being.  Sadly she never got to finish this blanket, when she lost her battle against depression last year.

In tribute to Marinke some designers and Scheepjes yarn decided to go ahead with the crochet along.  So they teamed up and finished the blanked as it was designed by Marinke.  Visit A Creative Being for more about this.

I decided to join this CAL.  And although Scheepjes has created some gorgeous crochet-kits especially for this blanket, I decided to check my yarn stash first. (Because I do have A LOT of yarn in my stash.)

I didn’t had to look far, because before I knew I found myself with some Drops Belle in my hands.  Drops Belle is a gorgeous linnen yarn, very soft and really nice for blankets or (summer)scarfs.  And due to the fact that it’s linnen, it’s also very comfortable to crochet with on those warm summer days.

You like to know which colors I’m using or which size hook I’m using?  Check out my Ravelry projectpage.

Wanne join me and the others?  There’s still plenty of room for you.


Happy crocheting!

Creative greetings,
