Something Special

mystery crochet cal

Mikey of @thecrochetcrowd is hosting a Mystery CAL over on Stitch and Unwind that kicked off with the first set of clues this week. It’s a chance to play around with different yarns and colors and make something creative and fun without knowing in advance what it is.

    OH MY GOODNESS AND OH MY STARS! Thank you ever so much for featuring my Rosette Lampshade. It was such a fun project but it has even been more fun to share. There is another in the works! ~Kelly
