Love is Enough CAL by Janie Crowfoot
When I read that the new colourway of Janie's CAL is named after a poetry book by William Morris, of course I had to look up the title poem and here it is:
Love is enough: though the World be a-waning,
And the woods have no voice but the voice of complaining,
Though the sky be too dark for dim eyes to discover
The gold-cups and daisies fair blooming thereunder,
Though the hills be held shadows, and the sea a dark wonder
And this day draw a veil over all deeds pass'd over,
Yet their hands shall not tremble, their feet shall not falter;
The void shall not weary, the fear shall not alter
These lips and these eyes of the loved and the lover.
It does sum up present times very well and the message of love overcoming the worst of challenges is very apt.
The Crochet Along originally ran earlier this year but was disrupted somewhat by world events, namely Covid so Janie and Stylecraft decided to run the crochet-along again in a new colourway.
The CAL will begin again on the 3rd November with instructions for the new colour way being released every two weeks until the 9th February 2021. There is a colour substitution document that will show each round or row of every motif from the Fruit Garden CAL to be used in conjunction with the original patterns to create the new ‘Love is Enough’ Blanket. The original patterns will remain on the Stylecraft website throughout and there are ‘how to videos’ on Jane’s own page.
Our stock of the new colourway is due in this week so if you would like to make sure you have your pack you can pre-order here for £55.00 including p&p.
