This morning saw the release of the second clue for Stylecraft Yarns Lilly Pond Blanket Crochet Along. I’m not sure how those of you taking part are fairing? My tension as I’ve mentioned previously is off and by quite a bit 😳
The block this time is called Tiny Lilly and doesn’t look too difficult (phew). Having glanced over the pattern quickly though, I have spotted the words sew/sewn 😒 Since when did I sign up for a sew along?
I jest 😉 😉 😉
Having said that this is serious business apparently, if you’ve joined the Lilly Pond Facebook Page you’ll have no doubt seen just how ‘seriously’ some people are taking it 😱 It’s not a race to see who can complete the blocks first and it most certainly shouldn’t be a competition about whose block is better (only my opinion). Sadly, I’ve noticed several posts from members saying the forum just wasn’t for them and they’ve left because of it. I’d like to think this will make people think twice before posting anything unbecoming, but I doubt it. What I do think they should note is that other companies and individuals could be put off of hosting their own CAL/KAL because of it.
Enough chatter, back to the CAL
For the Tiny Lilly blocks you’ll need the shades in the chart above. Stylecraft Life DK on the left and Stylecraft Special DK substitutions on the right. Note the Plum and the Fondant shades are only used for the sewing this time.
The next block Lilly Bud will be released on May 5th.
