join in the first periscope crochet along !

I am super excited to share with you an upcoming project.
Introducing the first #periscopecal!

As you already know, I have fallen completely down the rabbit hole of Periscope.  And I am dipping my toes into the possibility of interactive crochet with my first Periscope Crochet-a-Long.  Eeeeeeks!

The Dates:
September 13 through October 17 (5 weeks)

The Pattern:

The Carnivale Cushion
by Michelle Robinson of Poppy and Bliss

Isn't it gorgeous?!!

The Gist:
Each week, we will work on a part of the project.  Every Monday at 11:00am est, I will Scope mini-tutorials for the stitches and techniques used in the project.  Every Thursday at 11:00 am est, I will share my progress so far and then open it up for a Pass-the-Cast for anyone else who would like to share their progress.  If you haven't Scoped yet, this would be the perfect time to jump in on a supportive community (hint, hint)! If you are not able to join live at those times, the replays will be available on Pericsope for 24 hours and on Katch.Me.  Please share your progress on your social media outlets using the #periscopecal.

The Schedule:
