Have you heard? New CALs coming our way!

Hello everyone! In this video I’ll be speaking about some crochet a longs, or CALs and a Mystery A Long or MAL that have either recently released or will be coming to us soon! I hope that this video is helpful for you and that you see something here that sparks your interest. We’re spending a lot of time in the Netherlands talking about the Something Magic CAL and the History of Trees CAL but even more time in South Africa where designs are coming out of the wood work! Penelope and Charlie from Hooked on Sunshine, Dedri Uys has given us a teaser about her upcoming Ubuntu CAL and Jen Tyler has wow’d us with her Karoo Vintage MAL. I hope you’re as excited as I am about these. All of the information for these CALs/MAL can be found under the video!
