Ceph-Along CAL roundup

This month we took a trip under the sea with the Ceph-Along, featuring my new Baby Cephalopod patterns and their friends made from any of my other aquatic patterns.

I decided to participate in this CAL myself with some crazy-cool variegated yarn I found. I wasn’t sure if the effect was going to be amazing, or just an amazing disaster, but it worked out as well as I hoped it would – you can almost see my baby cephs changing colour before your eyes…

The verdict seems to be that this was a perfect use for a very unusual yarn 🙂

Now, roundup time! (And don’t forget to keep reading to the end for the March prize CAL details…)

This photo gallery is randomly ordered. For speed, I just give credit with participants’ Ravelry usernames.

I hope that brought a smile to your face – it did to mine! Isn’t it fascinating to see how different yarn choices add such personality to each animal?

    Soo cute! The marine life is as colorful as this Roundup.
    CALs are so much fun! 🙂

  3. I really enjoyed that round-up! The cephs are a hit! I still have yet to do the other three ceph patterns. Maybe some colorful Easter cephs for the next CAL? 😉

    I love all the baby cephalopods. Thanks for making such great patterns.
