Nuts About Squares CAL

After being the voice we all hear behind some of the coolest CALs of recent years, including Sophie’s Universe, LDOTB and now the Hygge CAL, Esther from It’s All in a Nutshell is hosting her own CAL, named, you guessed it: Nuts About Squares!

The CAL will kick off on Friday 31st of March, with a new square being released on Esther’s blog each week.  There are 11 fabulous designers involved, including my dear friends Dedri and Tatsiana.

There are also three colour packs available, in Earth, Sea and Sky*.  I think my favourite is Sea, but it’s a difficult decision!

Of course you can put your own colours together, here’s what Esther says:

“To make your own colorway, choose 6 colors you like and that work well together. Then determine which color you want to be color A, which color B, etc. Color A is used the most in the blanket and will be the main color. Colors E and F are accent colors and it works best if colors E and F are lighter or contrasting to color A. Colors B, C, and D are used about equally. Determine the yarn weight of the yarn that you are using to determine how much yarn you will need. The three kits give you yarn amounts for three different yarn weights.”

I’m really looking forward to watching this CAL week to week.  I’d love to make the time to participate, so I’m going to see if I can fit it in to my schedule…
