Kaboom CAL – Let’s make a rainbow!

Hi folks!

It’s time to announce all the details about my next CAL (Crochet-A-Long) – Kaboom! Yay! Kaboom has a real retro 70’s feel with an explosion of rainbow colour in a crocheted blanket.

All the nitty gritty information, including how much yarn you’ll need, hook size, where to get help and lots of other useful information can be found on the Kaboom FAQ page right here.

How will it work?

The CAL will start Monday 26th September. You can choose how you’d like to stay up to date with Kaboom.

Option 1

Sign up to the CAL emails and have the pattern delivered directly to your inbox with all the hints and tips and links to videos you’ll need. Click here to do that.

Option 2

Head here to the blog each Monday and download the pattern from the most recent blog post. Each post will also have my hints and tips and links to videos. If you subscribe to the blog, you’ll get an email every time I post something new – not just CAL posts.  You can subscribe over on the right on a desktop, or scroll down to the bottom on phones etc.

Option 3

You can get the complete pattern in the Kaboom ebook on the start date.  I always get lots of requests for the full pattern early, so this time, hopefully more folks will be able to work how they prefer.

Now as for the yarn, I have exciting news for you.  Bendigo Woollen Mills, who supplied the scrummy yarn for me to make Kaboom, are putting together a kit for you.  It’s going to be a great deal too. You’ll get 12 x 200 gram balls of Luxury 8 ply washable wool, which is ample to make the blanket and also make some bonus accessories I’ll be sharing at the end of the CAL. You will have leftovers from the kit – that’s never a bad thing 😉

The kit will cost A$150 which is a saving of $18 and includes free shipping to Australian addresses. For those of you overseas, a comparison today into USD means you’d get the kit for USD$113 – that’s a great deal for the amount of yarn you’ll get.


BWM have offered up a Kaboom Kit as a prize for CAL folks!  Yes! To be in with a chance to win, all you need to do is be signed up to my Newsletter and have ticked the Kaboom CAL box.  I will draw a winner at random Monday 19 September   Friday 23rd September at 7 am AEST. I wonder who will win?

    I’m so excited for the CAL!! I love your patterns 🙂 The yarn looks amazing, it’s way out of my price range so I entered to win the kit on the 23rd. Thank you for all of your hard work Shelley. I have learned so much from you.

    Just found you, via the BWM site – and I’m 24 hours too late to enter. Sighh …
    Never mind: living in Geelong, I’m tickled pink to discover an Aussie champ who lives in roughly the same latitude – and certainly in the same State !
    Looking forward to your blog posts from now on …
