Cals during pandemic

I’m a craft designer and author of hundreds of articles and reviews about crocheting and other crafts. I search out and present novel approaches to classic patterns and techniques to encourage you to try something new. I’m delighted that so many of you read my posts and that I can contribute to promoting our crochet community. I’m interested in crafts, interior design and love traveling and sitting next to a campfire. I live with my husband and three kids in the Rockies.

So, we’re still under lockdown, and it doesn’t seem to be lifting too quickly. Therefore, why not make the best of a poor situation and get a lot of crocheting under your belt.

Of course, since the isolation itself is a problem, why not select your crocheting projects from among CALs for the pandemic, so that you can participate over the web and maintain a sense of community with your fellow crocheters. Here are some CALs for the pandemic to get youinvolved in and keep up your spirits, while producing beautiful projects.
