Welcome to the 12 Weeks of Christmas CAL 2017

This year I’ll be partnering with SIX super-talented blogger friends and Red Heart Yarn to sponsor the CAL!

We are in our third year of the #12WeeksChristmasCAL event and I’m even more excited than I was the first year! This year I’ve added two more super talented designers, for a total of 6 guest bloggers! Like past events, this one will focus on having fun! Along the way we hope you learn some new techniques, play with some new yarns as well as old favorites and most of all make some like minded friends! The added bonus is that when you are all done, you’ll have some holiday decorations and gifts too! Thank you to Red Heart Yarns for sponsoring this CAL and the weekly and grand prize raffles once again! Continue reading “Welcome to the 12 Weeks of Christmas CAL 2017”
