Furls September CAL Yarn Winner and more

Posted on September 12, 2016 by Lorene Eppolite | 6 Comments

Yarn Winner, New Pics, Interview, our secret group, free gift for you, and more ways to win from Furls...

Last week we opened up our giveaway for helping us name the shawl for our September CAL with Cre8tion Crochet.  We had over one thousand name suggestions... that we just are not done going through.  The actual name of the cowl will be announced next week, September 19, 2016 when we release part 1.  We did not base the winner off the name we chose (or will chose) because multiple people have submitted the same name, or names similar enough that it would have been impossible to decide who the winner was.

NEW pictures

Last week was a sneak preview of our September CAL, but this week we are bringing you more detailed pictures so that you can really see what your shawl will look like.


Get to know a little more about our designer...

As you know, our designer for the very first Furls Crochet-a-Long is Lorene Eppolite of Cre8tion Crochet.  You can check out this interview between Lorene and the founder & owner of Furls Fiberarts, Harrison Richards.  


You can also check out some of Lorene's crochet patterns in her Ravelry.  A great deal of Lorene's patterns are free, but she does also offer a few premium patterns, and we have a little surprise for you at the end of this post... don't scroll through without reading it all the way through, we're watching.  Just kidding, we're not really watching, but we don't want you to miss the other important info about the CAL, so, patience young padawan.  


Are you ready to go?

If you haven't already ordered your yarn, be sure to do it today, since it will take almost a week for it to arrive and our CAL starts next Monday, September 19, 2016.

The yarn colors available for this CAL are shown below and you can place your order HERE.  Use coupon code "OINKFURLS" to get 15% off your order.  You can also purchase any sport weight yarn from Oink's ready to ship store here.  All other yarn colors are custom dyed to order and can take up to 2 weeks for delivery.  

And the winner is...

Congratulations to our winner of 3 skeins of yarn from Oink Pigments, Amanda Sullivan.  You will also be contacted by email so that we can get your yarn choice mailed out to you right away.  Thank you for helping us pick a name for our new shawl.

More ways to win big with Furls ...

A Note About Comments

Furls Crochet Team

November 9th, 2016

Hey everybody! Shortly into our CALs we realized that our out-of-the-box blog comment system wouldn't let us reply to your comments.

We've since installed Disqus, above, which allows you guys to respond to each other and us to reply to your questions; seems like a no-brainer!

We will continue to display existing comments from the old comment system on all existing blog posts. All future commenting will be done through Disqus. Enjoy!

Please forgive my ignorance everyone, but can someone tell me what CAL means please? I just do not know. I haven’t crochet for quite a while but I am going to be starting a new project very shortly, as I am waiting for my yarn to arrive! Also, does Furls ship to the UK and are the competitions open to us here in the UK? I look forward to hearing from you, thanks xx
