Happy New Year folks!! Here is the #JanCAL project, the Calm Cowl. 
Circular scarf crocheted in the round. It can be worn in the different ways; hanging like a scarf or wrapped like a cowl. Very quick and easy to make, will keep you warm through the cold winter days.

One more thing... As you all know, communities launched yesterday and there was a mad rush to begin communities. I did not join this rush and create a CAL community as I prefer to think things through and see if there is a need or justification for something before launching it. What do you guys think? Should we migrate this to a community? Should we keep it in the Knitting Lodge? Or should we keep it running from this page?

I would be ok in the Lodge or as a separate group.  whichever is easier for the moderators!

Hey crocheters! Believe it or not I am thinking hard about 2013 Crochet Along Projects and as always want your input. What are your thoughts on...
1) A year-long Crochet Along project?
2) Beaded crochet?
3) A mystery CAL?
4) Tunisian crochet?
5) Ease of projects. Should we strive for challenging projects? Keep them simple? Mix it up?
6) Other suggestions/ideas/etc?

Good morning everyone!! For #DecCAL we are working on two projects to keep helping you create more and more crochet gifts for the season. This is a market bag that cleverly uses a CD as a base. This is a really QUICK project.
Made in the round. Rounds 1-6 should equal 6 inches. Can be made with or without using a CD in the base.

Because I am gifting these, I want to be sure they are easy to care for. And that means being able to drop them in the wash if something spills on them.

I like the smaller projects too because on the year long one, I would feel like I was too far behind if I didn't get started right away. For smaller projects, I might need to skip a month, but then I would start with everyone the next month.  I like the idea of new things I've never done and all those listed or suggested will work for me as I'm pretty new to all of this.  =)

I did some cleaning up and updated our About Page. It now includes links to the current month's projects as well as links to all of the previous projects we have made.

For #DecCAL we are working on two projects so you can have a few more gifts under the tree! This is an adorable bunny blanket lovie type toy. Don't know any little ones? I have seen some dogs snuggle up with these cuties too!

I think I'll actually have to buy yarn for this month.  I don't have enough cotton for the market bag (and even though I have acrylic that has good colors for this, I don't want to make it from that for whatever reason...) and the acrylic I have is totally not any color I want to use for this blankie.

Alright everyone, it's time to choose the #DecCAL .   What's it going to be? You have until midnight tonight to let your desires be known so that we can fight choose a pattern tomorrow and Friday and cast on Saturday.
1) Purse or 2) Plush Toy
 
Attention! November is ENDING! This means two things: 1) Finish up your hats, tag me, and tag them with #NovCal so I can make a photo album. 2) Time to choose December's CAL project!!
