Pretty yarn for another CAL


A couple of weeks ago I saw that Stylecraft were doing a CAL. It looked lovely but I didn’t look too closely as I’m still doing the Last dance on the beach CAL, plus I have the yarn for Lucy’s Log cabin and I’m partway through Lucy’s Ripple. I thought that was probably enough to be going on with, and not even taking into account all the yarn that seems to be accumulating under my desk.

A few days ago, I was chatting with Tree, via email, and she mentioned the CAL, which is called Carousel. I went back for another look and realised that there are two yarn options. There’s the basic version done in Stylecraft special DK. I’ve used that a lot and really like it, but the colours are very bright so that was one of the reasons that I didn’t look too closely. What I didn’t realise is that it also comes in the new Batik DK which is absolutely gorgeous. I know you don’t have to buy the packs, but I’m useless at putting colours together so I find that much easier.

Once I’d seen the Batik, I was hooked (pun intended) and I ordered my pack.

Stash-02I love the way the yarn comes when you order from The Wool Warehouse. Those bags are great for storing the yarn in.

Just look at these gorgeous colours.

Stash-01Isn’t that yummy? The CAL starts in about four weeks but I know I won’t be ready for it then as I really must finish Last dance on the beach first. I’m really looking forward to starting it though so maybe that’ll spur me on to get Last Dance finished more quickly 🙂

  1. Beautiful yarns. I do love how all the yarn comes in those lovely organza bags. Can’t wait to see you start on this one.


  2. I am so jealous of people who can crochet as I can only do the very, very basic stuff. These colours are so pretty


    • If you can do the basic stuff, then you can do anything as all the stitches are based around that. I find the easiest way to try new techniques is to watch someone else demonstrating it and Esther is brilliant. Her YouTube channel is called It’s all in a nutshell crochet and there are some excellent videos on the fundamentals. You should give it a try. It’s much easier than you think 🙂


  3. Ahh gorgeous colors! So many CALs… How to choose which ones to do, that is the question!


  4. Those colours are wonderful ❤️
