New CALs

I've been thinking that it was time for another Crochet-a-Long (CAL) on the Ravelry Learn Crochet group. We had a great time, and great learning experience with the Divine Hat, wasn't that in December? So when the chatter started about a CAL, and several people suggested a bag for summer, well I had to jump in and offer to lead a CAL. I'm an instructor and moderator for the group. So, I posted that I'd be willing to do a CAL, and opened a discussion on suggestions. Last night we decided to do the "Sweet Pea Tote Bag".
Tonight's chatter is about yarns and yarn substitutions. I had to dive into the stash to see what I had. I used or gave away most of my Sugar' n Cream for dishclothes before the Gathering of the Guild. I've got a cone of beige with some blue & burgundy flecks, wow, that's left from a Conference about 4 years ago! I also have some blue Cotton Ease that's been around for a long time, and some variegated blue Cadiz that's a round cord-like fiber. I had been saving these two together in the same bag, thinking about making a purse, so this might be a good time to use up that stash!
