So, I’m not quite managing to do a post each week about this – that doesn’t surprise me!
Here’s a round up of my Crochet Mood Blanket 2014 – Days 8-17
Day 9 – Tired – this was the Thursday in the first week back at school/work/clubs after Christmas.
Day 10 – Happy – I’ve been getting so many lovely comments about my popcorn stitch crochet rugs. Here’s one I’m working on for my sister. I’m really enjoy making it – so colourful and bright!
Day 11 – Awake – even though it had been a busy week, I felt AWAKE, on this Saturday. I love our weekends and it was a particularly lovely and sunny day. I’ve been trying to get all of my housework and chores done during the week so that the weekends are free for nothing in particular – so far, so good!
Days 12, 13 and 14 two blues for content and a magenta for happy. It probably sounds a bit sickly or smug but things are just ‘nice’ at the moment. There’s lots of chilling and contentedness in our house at the moment.
The magenta is because Missy surprised me with this gorgeous pussycat pin cushion, which she designed and made herself, because she’d heard me saying* I needed one. (*replace with moaning)
Days 15, 16 and 17 (Picture below) – two pinks for tired on Wednesday and Thursday. It seems my energy dips in the middle of the week! I decided on Day 17 that I’d really like to try a different square for my blanket. As I said in my first Crochet Mood Blanket post, this blanket is going to a “what will be will be” blanket in terms of colour and texture, so I figure it’s ok to extend that sentiment to the squares too!
So, I used my Day 17 colour (green for more frustrating computer problems) to edge my first 16 squares and I’ve started a new square from Day 18. I’ll share that square in my next Crochet Mood Blanket Post – but, you may have already seen it if you follow me on Instagram or Twitter! From now on I’ll be making blocks of 16 squares and edging and joining those larger blocks.
I’ve loved following #crochetmoodblanket2014 on Instagram. Are you making a Crochet Mood Blanket? How’s it coming along?
