Posted on January 30, 2017 by Lianka Azulay | 0 Comments

WHAT’S NEW THIS WEEK

If you are just joining us, you’ll need to check our Part One of the January CAL here. This week we will be completing our project by adding the hood to our capelet. The hood is made as a rectangular piece, and will be folded and sewn closed on the back edge during finishing.

It has been a great joy to interact crocheting a-long with you! Seeing your projects coming to life is priceless. Thank you for being such a supportive and fun group. I hope to see you again and have more fun 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!
