So on the 23rd December 2016 I stumbled across the Moogly Blog for the CAL (Crochet along) http://www.mooglyblog.com/category/2014-afghan-cal/
I had heard of CAL- you buy the yarn a square is released and you make the square with your yarn at the end of the year you join all the squares together.
I joined the facebook group (https://www.facebook.com/groups/moogly2015cal/) and loved all the 2016 work I was seeing and decided that I would join in and make a blanket for mine and my husbands bed.
After thinking about my colour scheme I sourced the yarn and purchased some Stylecraft Special Aran from http://www.woolwarehouse.co.uk/ in the following colours
The order went through on 27th December I didn’t think I would get it until the new year but it arrived on 31st Decemeber
It was really lovely to receive the yarn in these bag will keep them protected until I need them.
I decided to take a colour from each bag to have a proper look and am very pleased with the choice. I also reordered the bages putting two colours of each in one bag- this will be my working bag and the rest in the other bag to put away until I need more.
I chose the colours as red is my husbands favourite yellow is my favourite and the rest I matched into two pictures that are hanging above our bed we bought them on our honeymoon in August.

I have hidden the yarn and plan to try and make this with out my husbands knowledge he works shifts and so gets home late in the evening and works lots of weekends so it should be easy to work around that! Then I can wrap it up and give it to him Christmas 2017.
The first square is released tomorrow and I am very excited!
