Looks like cars, don’t you think so? It’s always a bit subjective with these small patterns, but my first thought really was little cars 🙂 . On a 4-lane way, in a traffic jam. I always have to think of that crazy Dutch song of Andre van Duin  🙂 . For the ones who do not know this: here is the video. Could be something that’s from before your time of course, but it’s still funny 🙂 . There was a lot of guessing again on facebook , and some guessed it right of course 🙂 . Did you see the back by the way?Read More →

The little fishies It was a bit exciting last week:  would you like the first part of the mystery-part of the HAL CAL? Apparently you did 🙂 . Thank goodness 🙂 . Phew! So I was very glad with your reactions!  This week diamonds There was some guessing of course what it would be this week, and the hint was quite obvious this time 🙂 . Drop the name ‘James Bond’, and then it’s clear of course. But please keep guessing the next weeks, because it really makes me smile. My husband asks me why I’m grinning when I read your guesses, well, that’s whyRead More →

It was quite funny, on Facebook there was quite some guessing what the ‘theme’ of the next part of the HAL CAL would be, and there were a couple of ladies that guessed it right 🙂 . Little fishies!

The blanket has reached a length now that it lays nice and warm on your lap while working on it. And if you’re like me and don’t like the cold, this is not quite a punishment, don’t you agree? 🙂 This week we will provide for some sunshine ourselves. We will crochet sunshine! When you’ve come to this part, the interwoven or locking crochet technique should be something that you manage quite easily I assume, so that won’tRead More →

Mailboxes??? Well, that was the first thing that popped up in my mind. You will probably know, the opening in the door where the mail comes in (in Dutch houses). Maybe you will see something totally different when you see it, but I thought this was okay 🙂 🙂 🙂 .  About the name so far. It is a nice and simple pattern again, just like last week, so you don’t need the stitchmarkers. Next week we will have a pattern with more counting, and that will be a real  figurative pattern. You can see it on the facebook group picture for the HAL CAL,Read More →
