I’m going to start this post out by wishing all of you a happy new year! For a post about my resolutions check them out on my other blog.
So the crochet a long 2015 mood blanket here I come! I am quite excited for this because after the one blanket I managed to make in the span of three days once, I haven’t ever completed a blanket. A friend found this link from 2013, and that’s where we got the idea. Here we go! I couldn’t find the proper pictures of colors I wanted to use so it’ll be a mystery to you until I post the pictures of the blanket progress.
Unhappy- Pastel Yellow
Upset- Pastel Green
Tired- Pastel Blue
I added two moods so I could have the full rainbow spectrum. I added lonely and happy. The rest were on the other post. To take the edge off the negativity I chose to use pastels because I feel that it might cheer me up to work with soft colors at the end of a crappy day.
I also noticed one flaw in this idea. 365 is only divisible by two numbers 5 and 73. To make the blanket fit better I plan to put in a special square for each of my boys’, their dad, and my birthday. I might add in more as I go it depends on my mood on those days I guess.
I am using an H hook, with worsted weight (4) acrylic yarn.
The Puff SquareTraditional Granny Square
Some pinterest pictures
This really great square from Moogly (for special days)
With the squares I am making sure that they are all 5 inches. Meaning I’ll do however many rounds of each square to make 5 inches since I’m using different patterns there might be a different amount of rounds.
Here is my square for tonight. I chose pastel blue since I slept all day, I was very tired. This one is the puff stitch square.
Here is my square for celebrating New Years. This one is one I mimicked from a picture I saw on pinterest a long time ago. Can’t credit back because it was just a saved image on my computer. (Sorry.)
So there you have it! I encourage others to try this. And if you do leave me a link in the comments and we can have a link party when we update. I am probably going to make a group on Ravelry in the near future for this.
Thank you all and have a great start to the new year!
A friend tagged me in a post on facebook about this project. A project that I am quite excited to start. I am still working out the details, I think I will post my progress every Monday.
About the project… It’s a mood blanket. Crochet a square using a predetermined color that expresses your mood daily, of weekly. I am choosing to do it daily. Her chart looks like this.
However I think I will switch it up a little. Red is my favorite color so I wouldn’t want it to represent upset. So, when I start the project on January first I will post my mood chart.
I plan to just crochet or sew them together as I go. I feel like it will give a good representation of my year. I am quite excited for this project! I have spent a lot of time crocheting in the last few months but I haven’t updated. Tomorrow I will post a full update on what I have been up to. Though for now I am going to get off.
Hope everyone had a great winter holiday!!!
