WOW! What an incredible CAL this has been! It has been amazing to see what everyone has managed to make with onlY 1 skein or 100g of yarn. Fay and myself have enjoyed seeing how many FOs there are, and there has been a phenomenal amount of FO posts on Ravelry and Instagram… 174 to be exact (excluding Fays and my own.)
We would like to thank everyone who participated and interacted on the Ravelry chatter thread, used the #OneSkeinWonderlandCAL hashtag on Instagram, and posted in the Ravelry FO thread. We hope that you all relished the challenge of only using one skein, and were happy with the results. From hats to scarfs, socks to shawls, cowls to mittens… there has been a project from everyone within this CAL, and now when you buy, or get gifted a lovely skein of yarn; hopefully you won’t be so hesitant to chose a project for it. We hope that the FO thread on Ravelry will provide some inspiration and encouragement that you can make something wonderful with only one skein!
There have been some absolutely stunning projects, and here are our winners. Using a random number generator, we chose 2 from the Ravelry FO thread and 2 FOs from the #OneSkeinWonderlandCAL hashtag on Instagram.
@hayrie with her marvellous green Hilsborough crochet cable socks. Hayley has won two skeins of undyed yarn and a set of icing colourants. We hope Hayley enjoys playing around dying some yarn!
@crafternoontreats with her clever use of variegated yarn to colour pool in this stunning cowl. Kathryn has won a lovely project bad made by Emya Handmade. The perfect size for One-Skein projects…
Stephanie (aka tattedtatter) with her beautiful Boo Shawl. Stephanie has won the Accessories book by The Crochet Project, a lovely little book full of wonderful projects.
Gill (@jpohren) with her lovely Calm cowl using Fjord Fibres yarn. Gill has won a gorgeous autumnal skein of Crafternoontreats yarn. We can’t wait to see what Gill will crochet with it!
Here are a few FOs that stood out for us… I can’t show them all, although I would love to… (Please head over to IG and Ravelry to see everyone’s FOs – We loved every single entry)
We can’t wait to host this CAL again THIS year! Thank you so much to everyone who got involved, and helped to create the FO thread which is now a lovely database for One Skein projects.
Love Charlie & Fay, Xx
