As we approach the end of the Moogly 2014 Afghan Crochet-a-long, thoughts are turning to 2015 CALSs…. and most thoughts are saying Yes! So many of you have shared both enthusiasm and ideas for the next year, that I thought I’d put together a quick survey – the Moogly 2015 Crochet-Along Survey!
The survey is very short – only 6 questions. And I’m not asking for any personal information at all! So please be honest, there’s no reason not to be! And you don’t have to have participated in the last one either, this is open to everyone!
A note about the one question where you rank things: it’s a little confusing at first, but when you change the number, the entire answer moves places. So if it looks like the numbers aren’t working… they are, it’s just that they stay in order while the words move place! You will need to scroll down to see all the options on that one.
So let’s get to it! I’ve got 3 ways for you to take it. I’ve embedded it here in this post below. If that doesn’t load for you, there is a link below that. And if THAT doesn’t work for you, I’ve got the URL there for you to copy and paste.

Please only take the survey once! It should take less than 2 minutes of your day – so jump in and let me know what you think! If you feel like there’s something in the survey that you’d like to say more about, feel free to comment here. I’ll keep reading your comments and the survey results, and you can look forward to hearing what the plan will be by the end of the year!

I made the Ups and Downs fingerless mittens and the hat also. I learned many new stitches from the pattern and your tutorial. Although, I did change the pattern so I did not have to weave; I used 3 rows of hdc in the 3rd loop instead. Looks great! I am now making a matching infinity scarf and will also make boot cuffs so they all match. Thanks again for a great free pattern. You Rock especially for an old lady of 62.
😀 Thank you so much Roxy! I appreciate you saying so!
I wish there was a comment section on the survey. I had fun with the CAL, but would love to see fewer flower patterns. I really liked the more geometric squares the best. Thanks for doing this.
Thanks for the feedback Heather. This is my first time using this survey program, so I wanted to direct the comments to here on the blog where I knew they’d be easier for me to read. 🙂
I loved the CAL, but I petered out 3/4 through. Still will be able to make an afghan, just not as big.
I realized I’m not a fan of projects I have to join at the end. If you do another block CAL, possibly a join as you go?
Although I would love a scarf or cowl CAL!
Love your blog and designs!!
Thanks for the feedback Alison!
This was my first CAL and I really have enjoyed it. I am really looking forward to the 2015 cal, whatever it might be.
Thanks for all your hard work on this. It is much appreciated!
Thank you so much Ann!
Thank you for your hard work in putting this together for all of us. This was my first CAL to participate in & have enjoyed myself immensely. I just jumped in with you at the beginning of the year & stayed with it. Even though I let the squares build up a little here & there, I always caught up. I didn’t have anyone specific in mind to make mine for until we found out I was expecting our 4 & last child. Then I decided to give it to my doctor as a thank you/Christmas gift. The many different patterns has taught me many new stitches & increased my understanding of crochet patterns. I look forward to next year, whatever it is!
Thank you so much Christen! I’m so glad you’ve stuck with it – I bet your doctor will be overwhelmed! <3 Congratulations, and I hope you enjoy next year too!
Hi Tamara, Being the mother of 2 boys I’d love to do a blanket suited to the boys/men in our lives.
I really enjoy your blog & find it so informative & fun.
Thank You 🙂
That’s a great idea Angela! Thank you!
I also love the geometrical look in afghans and would also love a men’s! There’s some neat camo yarns available now too! Don’t know if I could keep interest all year long but I sure would try!
Thanks Cathi! 😀
This was my first CAL and I absolutely loved it! I looked forward to getting the patterns and I just know my sister is going to love her Christmas present this year. Thank you so much for the work you did putting it together you’re amazing 🙂
😀 Thank you so much Sarah!
This was the first CAL that I have done and I enjoyed it very much. It was a great way to use up odds and ends of yarn that had accumulated over the years. I was able to stay caught up because I was always so excited to see the next pattern. Playing with all of the color possibilities was so much fun. I cannot wait to see what you will pull together for us in 2015. Thank you so much for your hard work.
Wow, thank you so much Nancy! 😀
I love crocheting new patterns, but I also like patterns that I can do while talking or traveling or watching TV. I’ve discovered that there is too much pandemonium around me to be able to try a new, intricate pattern every 2 weeks. So I vote for a CAL with patterns with repeats.
I wanted to take the survey,but when I tried to do the ranking question, I was unable to choose the number I wanted for each activity. By this I mean the numbers did not show up to pick from.
Thanks for all the hard work you do.
I was not able to do the 2014 CAL, although might actually be able to tackle it some time in the future! For 2015 I would LOVE to see a stripey afghan with different stripes added each week. Maybe like 2 or 3 rows of each new pattern, to allow for the texture to really pop and also will be awesome for those who want easy repeats! It would make an incredible stash buster.
Thank you Janessa! 🙂
Having just finished a challenge project for a crochet guild, I found I enjoy the challenge projects. Not sure I’d want a large project such as an afghan and living in southern California we don’t use scarves much (not enough and not a cold enough winter to need many scarves), but if I like the look of the project I usually will give it a go regardless. I just hate hats, so I won’t even begin one unless its a commission item I’m working up for an infant
Thanks Barbara! 🙂
Hi am looking forward to joining the next cal as have not done it before! I second the request for shapes instead of flowery. And loads of COLOUR!
Laura from australia.
This CAL is really enjoyable, and I have to say whatever size/however many components the final 2015 CAL has, I enjoy the twice a month release schedule; frequent enough to keep interest high, but not so frequent that you feel overwhelmed. I do also have to second the desire for more geometric patterns, though more organic/natural looking flower designs could also be neat. Keep up the good work :)!
Thanks so much Angela!
I am loving the idea of Afghan stripes! Its not my taste to have many different squares but I love the look and textures of different stitches!
Thanks for all of your hard work. You did a great job for 2014. I took the survey, but trust your judgment for 2015.
Thank you Elizabeth!
Hello, I have been trying to look for any CAL groups that I could participate next year and found your website. I have never been a part of CAL and would like to try. I have completed the survey and I would like it if we could do CAL in such a way that every 2-3 months we could see and feel and have the satisfaction of having completed a project. That’s the reason why I ranked scarfs and cowls as my first preference.
If I may suggest here, rather than waiting the entire year to see an afghan completed, how about choosing home decor & crochet jewelry patterns in mixed proportions ? That way beginners will be able to learn as well as see some finished stuff soon……Just a thought !
I hope I can also join this CAL from next year.
Hi Niko! Thanks so much for the feedback!
Thanks for putting on a great CAL this year, Tamara. It was my first and now I’m a bit hooked on them! I learned a lot and really refined my stitching through this CAL and I get many compliments on these squares. I’m looking forward to putting them together.
In the survey I wasn’t able to specify how long of a CAL by what TYPE of CAL. So, I just wanted to say that a 6 month every week Afghan CAL would work for me or a monthly completed CAL for a smaller item.
Thanks again for all you do!
Thanks so much Patricia!
I was very excited to learn of the 2015 CAL. However I find it doesn’t seem easy to get the actual pattern for square one. Looked for the print friendly one & it never worked. Also, what is the easiest way to access the patterns…blog, newsletter, ravelry???
Hi Ruth! The Print Friendly button isn’t what you use to print this pattern – there are instructions on printing it in the ending paragraphs on the pattern on it’s blog post. Since it’s on a different blog, she offers a different printing method. You can use whichever method you like to follow along – all will have you coming to this blog every two weeks to get the links.
