Changing Tides – Week 14

img_4821-1Welcome to Week 14! 🙂

It was really lovely to discover this week that my ‘Crochet Along’s’ were featured in an article about CAL’s in Issue 45 of Make it Today Crochet Club magazine!

And thank you all so much for sharing your wonderful blanket photos over on Instagram

And in the Facebook Group

We’re on the home stretch and our blankets are nearly finished. This week we have some new stitches for our blankets which are inspired by the ripples in the water as the tides come in and out…
