Wanderlust CAL Week 4 – The Tent vs. The Retro Camper

Good morning my lovely hookers!  Welcome to Wanderlust CAL Week 4 – The Tent vs. The Retro Camper.  Which one will you pick? Or, will you be the over-achiever that completes both???  You will have to check out my IG feed or the Wanderlust CAL facebook group to see which one I pick:).


If you haven’t joined yet, there is still time!  Hop over to the original post for the details and check out the Wanderlust CAL week 1 – The Happy S’more here. I promise you won’t regret getting in on the fun!  Keep in mind, the Wanderlust CAL can be personalized.  You can decide to do each release and have a large blanket to snuggle under or you can just do some of the releases and make a lap blanket, baby blanket, or pillows!  You can also personalize each release with whatever colors suit your style… really, the possibilities are endless with this CAL.  I will be providing the colors I chose to use on my squares, but again, feel free to get creative and share!

I will continue to release on Fridays, since this seems to be working for everyone.  It allows you to get your yarn on the weekend and still have time to complete the square before the next release.
