Hooray!  Time to see who’s a winner!  Both winners were drawn at random.

First up is the lovely hand dyed skein of blue yarn by my instragram buddy Thimble & Purl . All you needed to do to be in the running to win that, was to share your work on Instagram using the tag #FRANmysterycal.  The lucky winner is….. annamoore3 !

Bendigo Woollen Mills very kindly offered a $50 voucher to spend with them for folks doing the CAL.  To be in the running to win that, you simply had to be signed up the the CAL newsletters.  The lucky winner is …… someone with an email address “h…………com”

I will be in touch with both of you very shortly to arrange getting your prizes to you!

What’s next?

So there you have it – another CAL done and dusted! As always I am already planning the next one.  I don’t have dates, details or anything yet, but here’s a sneak peek. All I do know is it won’t be a mystery CAL.  To hear more when it’s ready, just be signed up to my newsletter and you won’t miss a thing.

    Hi Shelley,

    FRAN was wonderful. Love the pattern. My sin loves his blanket and I will definitely make a matching one for myself. I learned how to do the spike stitch and I love it.? Everything was very easy to follow and the videos were very helpful as well. Thank you so much for letting me join. Will wait for the next one.

    Hi Shelley,
    I had never done a CAL and would like to thank you for this pattern, for the fun and learning. I have loved making mine and learnt so much. Your pattern is easy to follow, I did look up a couple of the You Tube videos for extra help, not sure how you could improve anything. I have completed one in navy dk King Cole baby soft and am almost finished with a patchwork one in Scheepjeswol, Cotton 8. Will try to get a photo to you when that is finished.
    It is great seeing the different completed Fran’s.
    Once again thank you.
