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! In all it’s simplicity I found it so cute, that I wanted it to be in the blanket. So I did! I’m very curious about what you think the next part will be 🙂 . The sunshine Last week the suns were released, and it was very nice again to see the pictures of your work. I’m most of the time very positively pleased with yourRead More →

How to use this page of the pattern On this page I will give you the link where to download the pattern for this part. I also provide collages of pictures that show you how it looks when you’ve finished your row. Pictures of the side that you’ve been working on, and pictures of the other side, so you can check if what you’ve done looks the same.

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 →
