  1. This will be my first CAL so I’m not sure how this works. Is a supply list available now? I joined the Ravelry group will I need to go there each week for the new pattern?

    • Yay! Welcome to your first CAL! No, there is no materials list, because a lot of the patterns (including mine) haven’t even been written yet. They will all be using worsted weight cotton yarn though. New patterns will be announced on the facebook group, and on the ravelry group, but you can also come here and check the schedule links on this post – I will be updating them each week as the new patterns are released. 🙂
