Welcome to the 2019 Fiber Flux Spring Crochet Along...yay! Today marks week one of the CAL and we'll be learning about the beautiful project we'll be making...the Flowering Herbs Shawl!  This project is perfect for the transition of spring, from those chilly days to the warm up!  We will be going over a few things today to begin:

  • Introduction to the project
  • Supplies
  • Schedule of the CAL
  • Where to connect with other makers


The CAL will be divided over the next four weeks, so we'll tackle each part bit by bit. Scroll down for the schedule with actual dates and what we'll be doing on each day/week.

  1. I have a question. Can I substitute another WW#4 yarn for the Chic Sheep? At this time I can't afford to buy the yarn. It will be a month before I can get it. I will be in the hospital next week receiving chemo, I thought this would be a great way to occupy my time by working on and finishing some WIP"s that I have to complete.
