scheepjes spring to summer CAL 2015: flight of fancy

Hi everyone!

Today the mailman brought me something AH-mazing! :) I’m sure most of you have heard by now, but for those of you that haven’t: Scheepjes is coming with a new CAL this Summer: the Flight of Fancy CAL! It’s designed by Annelies, whom you all know from her blog Vicarno! She made a lovely shawl, and it’s made from Scheepjes’ new yarn, Linen Soft.

I got my kit today, and I thought it would be fun to open it on my blog! :)



It comes in this really groovy jute bag! I think this is really clever because this project basically comes with its own project bag – genius! :)

The bag is filled to the brim with goodies, let’s take a look…



Hurray for yarn! :) I got my kit in the ‘Hummingbird’ colour way (there are three colour ways available – more info on that at the end of this post), and these are the colours – lovely jewel tones with a crisp, clean white as a base colour… I love it! The yarn is really amazing: it’s a linen/cotton/acrylic blend which gives it a nice sturdy feel, but yet remains soft to the touch.

And the most amazing thing about this new yarn? It has an ‘Easy Start’ label that you can pull to get the center out!


I’m already in love! :)

There are some lovely extra’s in this kit too, which, in my opinion, really set it apart from any other CAL out there. Let’s take a look!


Included in the kit is a crochet needle (4mm), a gorgeous shawl pin, a colour catcher, and a leather label from Scheepjes. I like the extra’s, especially the shawl pin! :)

Alright, so here’s some info on the new CAL!

CAL name: The Scheepjes Spring-to-Summer CAL “Flight of Fancy”
