CAl week 8   6 comments

week 8 rows

Well, I have to give Hannah LOADS of credit. She worked on the food truck yesterday in the heat, and still managed to get the CAL instructions done before I even got out of bed this morning. AND she gave us a pretty straightforward and easy week.

So easy, in fact, that I forgot to take photos as I went! So here are this week’s rows. I also tried to get a good shot of the whole blanket, it just is impossible now. Maybe when it is all done, I will take it outside, climb a ladder and get a shot of it that way. But for now, here is the only photo of this week’s rows.

I was reading on the group page on Ravelry that one person had trouble getting the bobbles to bobble to the front. I don’t have that trouble, really, but do find that occasionally they need a simple push to the front. Then they stay there. But I really like them – my only complaint is hiding the bobble color between bobbles, so I have to use colors that are similar in intensity. But they look good and are really simple to do.

  1. Looking good! I had the bobble colour hiding issue and resolved it by simply cutting the yarn & sewing in the ends under the bobble on the back.

  2. I have trouble getting bobbles and other puffy style stitches to sit right, on the back they look great, but from the front not so much. I can pop them out but they just go back. So frustrating! Blanket’s looking good by the way.

  3. I love that row on your blanket with the bobbles. I could never do bobbles. When I get the nerve to pick up a crochet hook again, I will definitely have to give it a try.

    • You know, I suspect Hannah will keep the CAl weeks up after it is done, when yo get through all your other projects, maybe you can do the CAL then – her instructions are very clear, with video, etc to go along with them.
