The final votes for the theme for my CAL have been coming in all weekend. Yesterday one theme (Sea & Sand) began to gather more and more votes, but it didn’t quite make it.
Just to refresh your memory the possible themes were:
Moonlight & Stars
Sea & Sand
Are you yelling at the screen yet? “Just stop waffling and tell us what it is!!*>!*”
For people who like stats here are the final votes in percentages:
Cottage Garden: 33%
Autumn Leaves: 22%
Sea & Sand: 19%
Summer Fruits: 15%
Moonlight & Stars: 11%
Yes! The winning theme is Cottage Garden.
And it’s not too late to join us, everyone welcome.
Originally I was going to link to everyone’s blog. I thought there would be around a dozen people doing this CAL with me, but there are currently 71 people in the Ravelry group I started alone, and more here, so it’s hard to tell exactly how many. Judging by the number of messages/votes I’ve had it’s LOTS!
I’ll be adding a linky image thing for you in a post soon, so if you want to add it to your blog etc you can paste the code in. If there’s anyone who wants to volunteer to try it for me please let me know. :-)
Come and add your Cottage Garden inspired blocks as we go week by week to the group I’ve set up on Flickr It’ll be fun to see everyone’s yarn choices. We start on 1st September with blocks #1 & #2 and pics can be added from then.
If you get stuck there are some super experienced and friendly crocheters on the Ravelry 200 Blocks Crochet Along with Rachell group who will help. I’ll definitely be there asking for help!
I’m off now to buy some wool/yarn. I’m still debating how extravagant I want to be, but I am a little fed up with Stylecraft and fancy trying something posh for the first time, but posh don’t come cheap…
