You folks know that I can’t pass on a Crochet Along (or CAL for short). I tend to work best with a deadline or goal, and I just won’t say no to hanging out with my favourite community! Whether I’m designing for a CAL, or just joining in the fun, it gives me something to focus on, and I get to enjoy the comradery that comes along with working on a project together. So, when Jennifer of A Crocheted Simplicity asked if I would like to host a Mini- Mysetery CAL in her Facebook Group, how could I say no?
If you would like to check out all of A Crocheted Simplicity’s Mini-Mystery Crochet Alongs, please read the Information Guide in this blog post HERE so you know how to join along!
