Suddenly it’s the end of the month and the official #rainBOOMMAL is coming to an end.
I want to thank you all for participating and sharing your photos this last month, and for being so supportive of me and of my design. The absolute highlight for me though is one of the Dutch participants who chose the rainBOOM! as her first ever crochet project and she absolutely NAILED it! Head over to the (Dutch) group to take a look at her wrap, and the loads of others. There are plenty of beautiful pics in the international group too!
I have seriously had the best February ever! It was such a privilege to work with Scheepjes and put this event together, and that they were so willing to make it work it this month, in which I also celebrated my 40th (or 12th annual 29th as I like to joke) birthday.
Here’s me, on my birthday, in NYC wearing my rainBOOM!

What a birthday it’s been (so far)! We were on the first boat to Liberty Island, and thank goodness we were, because when we returned at 11, the queue was FOUR hours long! Then we visited @themuseumofmodernart and van Gogh’s Starry Night, and THEN it was Top of the Rock and what a view! Now time to rest our feet before wondering: what to do for dinner!! #rainboommal
Even though the official MAL is winding down, for those of you who haven’t finished, or indeed haven’t even started, I want to keep seeing your pictures in the Scheepjes CAL Facebook groups, and I would love you to keep tagging me in the posts you add to Instagram – keep using #rainBOOMMAL and #rainBOOM
Also, don’t be shy, if you’re running into trouble with getting started, or with your tension, you can always message me or post in either of the two groups where there are loads of people who can offer their valued advice!
As you would have seen, over the last month I’ve been asking you to share your rainBOOM pics with the hashtag #rainBOOMMAL so I can give away an awesome set of KnitPro rainbow blocking pins!
Today I randomly selected a winner:
Congratulations! I’ll have the set in the post in the next day or so!
Thank you again for joining me this month, I’m going into the rest of 2019 full of good vibes and inspiration, and it’s thanks to you!
