Hope you all had a wonderful holiday. Thanks for being patient with me while I got this week’s squares out. For those of who don’t know, I ended the holiday weekend with a trip to the hospital that ended in having my appendix removed. While it was a little more complicated than just that, I am on the mend and home with my family again. I fully expect to be back to normal in no time at all. So, because of this, there was a slight delay in getting the graphs out for this week. Because of the little detour, I was unable to finish my own squares to show you all at this time, but I think the squares are simple enough this week that you get the idea from just the graphs.
Any true Gilmore Girls fan knows that Rory’s heart used to belong to Harvard, but that all changed when she decided that Yale was the place for her. So, to pay tribute to that great institution where many many things happened for Rory, here is a square for Yale:
This week starts the tribute to each of her main squeezes in the original series run (I still haven’t seen the revival yet–wifi at the hospital was not good enough to allow me to catch up while recovering). I have a square planned for each of her big love interests from the original series. Now, I won’t take sides with the whole #teamdean #teamjess #teamlogan thing. I think that each guy came into her life and fit her story just the way it was. Just like our own lives–the people we meet shape us and contribute to who we are today.
With that said, this week is Dean’s turn. Ah…first love. This was such a sweet and innocent time for Rory. Something I could never get over was the car that Dean built for her! Seriously, who does that?! I thought it fitting that Dean’s square be a tribute to Rory’s first car built with love and sweat by Dean himself.
I have both graphs available in several formats–PDF and png. Below you will find the links for them via Google Drive documents.
Here are the colors needed for these two graphs, but for more information on the colors (alternatives), layout, and schedule for this CAL, check out this IMPORTANT FAQs DOCUMENT.
While my Gilmore Girls CAL posts will stay up and remain free, for convenience, I have also combined all of these graphs into one giant PDF file for those that would like to purchase a copy of it condensed, rather than having to hunt thru my posts. You can purchase this pattern for a small fee here on Ravelry.
Feel free to make and sell products using this, but because I put a lot of time and love into this big CAL project, I ask that you give me credit or if it’s online somewhere, you link back to me. If you’re not a part of our CAL FB group, come and join us here.
I can’t wait to see what you do with this! The official hastag for this CAL is:
