The Halloween CAL has come to an end. A super nice CAL, of course in a super great group: Crochet Along with CB's Creations. And what a lot of Witches were made! The one even more beautiful, funnier or scarier than the other! It’s great to see all that enthusiasm!
If you ever have read my previous blogs then you know that I can be inspired by everything. Before I started to design Amigurumi's, I already made creations modeled from clay and wood pulp. The clothes were often sewn, but sometimes I also crocheted the clothes. My first designing!
My first own CAL is finished! This was my third CAL, but the other 2 were organized by I CAL Knuffels and Haak Met Ons Mee. Then a lot of tasks will be taken care of by the administrators of those groups. This one I organized myself. Fortunately, I had help from my test crocheters Wilma, Martine and Marion. Again: thank you!
Here in my hometown Papendrecht I can buy yarn for my creations at different stores. I can choose from Zeeman, Action and Xenos, stores which sell cotton and acrylic yarn among all other things they sell. Generally of reasonable quality and price, and you can make some fun projects with it. Sometimes stores as Trekpleister and Kruidvat sell yarn as well, but I have never bought their yarn. I have made the Toadstools Ama and Nita from acrylic yarn of Zeeman.
Regularly I see this question on Crochet groups. A lot of the ladies and gentlemen taught themselves from books and instructions from YouTube. Others were taught at school or by family members, mostly their mother or grandmother.
