Have you ever participated in a CAL (crochet along)? Neither have I. Oh, a bunch of readers will have participated in them. I can’t really determine how I feel about them. The Mystery CAL’s seem like they might be more interesting than a ‘regular’ CAL. I’m not quite sure what benefits there might be for a CAL.
This is the first motif in a Lion Brand CAL that I just received information about.
Aside from the fact that I don’t want to join motifs, I find this hexagon to be quite pretty. Don’t know where this CAL is headed – if it’ll be an afghan, scarf, or garment. I’d have to sign on every Thursday to find out.
Therein lies the rub. I won’t remember on Thursday. Will you? Yeah, I know I could maybe figure out how to use the calendar feature on my browser and have it remind me – but I’d probably have piles of other work to do on Thursday and would overlook the reminder.
My friend Ronnie has made several interesting things on CAL’s. The latest of her projects that I’ve seen turned out a unique, very smart cardi-wrap that I would like to make. But, it was a Mystery CAL, so since I didn’t know which way it was headed, I woudn’t consider joining.
So, what are the pros and cons of CAL’s. Let me here from YOU!
