Crochet Mood Blanket 2014
It is the last day of January!!!
I can’t lie, I’m not sorry to see the end of this month. We have definitely had better starts to new years gone by.
That is not to say we haven’t had any lovely, happy days over the last month, just that the overall feeling and mood has not been especially positive for us as a whole family.
Which is as good a link as any to my crochet mood blanket! Ha!
Despite it taking me the whole month to share it properly here, I have been hooking away at my blanket since the 1st and I am really loving the project 🙂
Truthfully I wasn’t sure if I would actually keep it up, and although I have fallen a couple of days behind a few times I have so far always caught back up! So here it is so far 30 days in – todays will be hooked up tonight!
I have assigned certain moods to 16 different shades of Stylecraft Special DK (the lucy pack, of course!) and each evening I choose the relevant colour and hook up a square.
For my blocks I am using the Sunburst Granny Square pattern by Priscilla’s Crochet and joining with the join-as-you-go method.
My blocks are quite large so at the moment it is 15 squares wide and will be an unknown number of rows long. I still haven’t worked out if I will split it into two blankets, or whether to do an exceptionally large spread for our bed… Decisions, decisions!
So far I have been edging and joining in ‘Sherbet’, a pale blue colour and while I do like it….. I still don’t love it and can’t quite decide what to do about it.
I have been toying with the idea of changing the edging colour for each month… Or maybe just every two rows for an even stripe effect… Or perhaps I’ll just stick with it…. What do you think??
