Yes I know it’s Saturday and not Tuesday but it still is CAL time on the blog. I can’t believe that we’re now already 12 weeks into the CAL and so far I managed to stick to my blogging schedule (till today). Over the next couple of weeks my CAL square blogging schedule will change and I won’t be able to stick to a proper schedule. I’m about to move for a new job, which I’m starting on Monday. Problem at the moment is that I’ve got no permanent place to stay, so I’ll need to get myself sorted out first before I can stick to a schedule again. But don’t worry it won’t be completely quiet on here. I’ve got lots of interesting things already planned for you :)
Back to the CAL :) As I mentioned before I joined a CAL and so far it’s been lots of fun! And yuhuu this week we’re going to tackle another Chris Simon square. We tackeled already a Chris Simon square in Week 10 and this weeks square works up rather quickly as well:)
Lovely Dedri from LookatwhatImade made again a phototutorial for the tricky bits if you need some help but over and all it’s a quite simple square again.
So if you haven’t joined the CAL yet it’s still not too late to say hello to the Official CCC Social Group on Facebook, they’ll get you all the info you need and also post the pattern of the week every weekend (and they’re a lovely bunch of girls who help you with all crochet related questions, so even if you don’t want to join the CAL it’s worth joining the group!).
Week 12 Kaleidoscope Blossom

I would love to see how your square turned out so please feel free to link your end result to the CALs Flickr group or post it onto the CAL groups page. But a warning! Those two groups are MASSIVELY addictive and you’ll want to make more than just the lovely squares you’ll see there!
My friend Dedri, from lookatwhatImade, is also following the CAL (she is actually the person I blame for being “hooked” up in this CAL ;)), she is also using Stylecraft yarn but her colours are much more cheery. Louise, from tea, crochet + me, is also following the CAL and is also a fellow Stylecraft addict :) So feel free to hop over to their blogs and see what they’ve been up to.
