It always makes me smile to see what people have made with my patterns, and hosting Crochet-Alongs is a great way to bring them together. Even though I’ve been largely absent for this CAL (a crazy move halfway around the world takes up a lot of time), I’m very happy to see that people have still participated – yay! I’d like to give a shout-out to the folks in the PlanetJune Ravelry group who keep the conversation going even when I’m not around to join in
It’s been quite a challenge to put this roundup together with my very limited internet access, but I’ve managed it. And now for the fun part – let’s take a look at the Easter CAL entries:
yaney made a cute PocketAmi bunny called Pip!
camaharet crocheted pretty daffodils in pink and white.
arbitrarily made this sweet Fuzzy Lamb with a colourful tummy!
Katalin whipped up a tulip and a bee to add to her daffodils to make a spring bouquet.
englishdormouse‘s Fuzzy Bunny looks striking with that lovely variegated yarn.
klopferli‘s PocketAmi trio look like they are chilling out in a mini armchair!
CrochtColorJunkie crocheted a whole egg box full of Easter eggs…
…and she took her trio of PocketAmi bunnies all the way to the Griffith Observatory to take their photo beneath the Hollywood sign (okay, it’s pretty small, but it’s really there at the top of the hill!)
rastakt set up a cute backdrop for her sweet PocketAmi set.
I’m melting with the cuteness of Morgan’s adorable grey lamby!
saudistitcher made this duckling and ‘chocolate’ egg for her little granddaughter
Linda sent me this pic of her daffodil that she made into a pin (clever idea!)
The prolific winner of the Christmas CAL, jukatca, has been crocheting up a storm again, making the full selection of CAL projects! Fuzzy Lamb…
…a sweet Fuzzy Bunny…
…a collection of Easter Eggs (and don’t they look pretty in those colours?!)…
…a PocketAmi Easter set…
…and a vase of red and white daffodils. I used to love that variety with the red centres (narcissi, maybe?) – I haven’t seen them since I left the UK 8 years ago, so this brings back some memories for me!
And last, but definitely not least, Jolie made the daffodil pattern her own by adding some pretty embroidered embellishments.
And now the results of the random drawing:
First prize ($10 gift certificate) goes to Morgan S
Second prize (free pattern) goes to Linda S
Runner up prize (discount voucher) goes to all the other entrants – thank you for participating!
Please bear with me: I still don’t have internet access at home so it may take me a few more days to email your prizes to you, but I promise you’ll get them some time next week!
I hope you’ve enjoyed this roundup – I think all the projects are adorable! Happy Easter to those who observe it, and, for everyone else, don’t forget to go out tomorrow to pick up some cheap chocolate eggs
As for me, I hope to get my Blackberry contract approved and get back online properly any day now – it pays to be patient in South Africa, as things happen when they happen here, and trying to rush them doesn’t help at all. I’m attempting to curb my frustration: I think a nice calm nature walk to look at some of the beautiful and exotic birds and plants that are everywhere here will take my mind off it! Here’s our temporary accommodation (actually, there are 3 identical pepperpot towers and mine is the middle one that you can’t see here, but you get the idea):
Down the hill (to the right in the above photo) is the city. And up the hill (to the left above) is nothing but a spectacular view up Table Mountain:
So don’t feel sorry for me – I’ll get the internet sorted out soon, and, apart from that, it’s pretty amazing here, especially for a big nature fan like me!
