Crochet the Sky (CAL) Update

This is the first week of the crochet the sky project, so I thought I would give a update. I check the sky everyday at 3:00 pm and crochet the colors I see. The sky has been mostly blue and on some days there have been clouds, so my blanket starts out with lots of blue and white.

Here are the first six rows of the blanket

The Ravelry group has grown to 31 people from different places in the world, they are from different areas of the United States, Canada, England, Ireland, Wales, Denmark, Australia, and South Africa. It will be exciting to see how different the colors of everyones blankets will be! If you are crocheting the sky but have not joined the Ravelry group yet, you can sign up here. We would really like to see your work!

I was not able to sit and crochet one day, so I was glad to have the Crochet the Sky Chart to keep track of the colors for that day. It only took a few minutes to jot down the colors and I was able to crochet that row the next day.

There is still time to join this crochet a long!

Crochet On!


  1. I signed up for the CAL and I'm still nursing a pulled trapizoid muscle in my back, so I've not been able to start mine, but I've been watching the sky every day! Soon as I can man a hook again without pain, I'll get started.

    Love yours so far. looks good!

  2. I am sorry to hear you are having back problems, I hope you get better soon. I am glad you are following along with us on this project. The pattern is easy enough that you should be able to catch up easily. Take care.
