Yes, the news is out, the moment is there that we have all been waiting for : there will be a new Scheepjes CAL soon !
I am so happy and excited to tell you I have been giving the opportunity to design this new Spring-Summer 2015 CAL for you.
Can you imagine how I felt when I received a phone call from Scheepjes and they asked me if I was interested in making a CAL design for them? Luckily they did not see my reaction, but there was no doubt my voice betrayed my excitement (a little secret I want to share with you : after hanging up the phone, I stood still for about 1 minute, while going over the conversation word for word, and next I put on some very loud totally wrong music, and jumped around until I was completely out of breath).
I received the yarn very quickly, and decided to stick to my ‘usual designing method’ : placing the yarn very visible, close to me, so I could see and touch it every minute of the day. It is actually my preferred designing technique : letting my subconsciousness ‘work’ with the yarn. And after a few days (sometimes it takes longer of course) I start ‘to see’ the design I want to make.
The yarn is fabulous, by the way. It is called Linen Soft, and believe me, it is a wonderfull linen-cotton-acrylic blend. Nobody has seen this yarn yet, it is brand new, totally fresh, and especially made for this CAL.
Soft and strong, it works up really great. It has lots of yardage so it’s not heavy, and the colours are so rich and beautiful. And let’s not forget : it is luxurious, it makes you feel like a queen, when you touch it, when you see it, and when you crochet with it.
The CAL design itself ? Let’s keep it a secret for a while…. A few sneak peaks are allowed of course, to make you all curious : it is stylish, glamourous, and has a wonderfull combination of colours,
And it is a shawl, a generous large and luxurious lacy wrap.
The CAL itself will start June 10th, and will go on for 11 weeks. Every week we will reveal a new part of the pattern, every wednesday at 9AM.
The patterns will be available in English (UK & US terms), Dutch, German and French. And they will be very detailed, with lots of extra info : pictures, crochet diagrams, tips & tricks, …. They will be uploaded as pdf files in the facebook groups.
Special kits have been made for this CAL : there will be 3 different kits available. Pre-orders will start soon in lots of shops, online and brick stores.
Needless to say I am truly enthusiastic about this CAL and I hope you are as excited as I am. Scheepjeswol and myself have been working very hard (and of course with lots of pleasure) to make a refreshing, new, relaxed and luxurious, absolutely stylish and glamourous CAL. Something that will be a real gift for yourself or someone special.
And : let us all ‘Spread Our Wings and Fly – Fly the Flight of Fancy’ : I hope you will join me in this great and stylish adventure !
