Crochet Mood Blanket 2014

Earlier this year I discovered  
Crochet Mood Blanket 2014 Challenge.

I was pittling around Pinterest one day and found 
some terrific crocheted blankets using granny squares.  
One was found on Attic24  and the other was on Crochetime.  

As I was reading through the Crochetime blog I found that the author, 
Natasja, was participating in an oh-so-fun-looking challenge 
called “Crochet Mood Blanket 2014″.  

I was fascinated by the idea of creating this blanket one square at a time
with each granny square representing that day's mood.  
The idea came from an Instagramer called mummy_stacey 
and she posted the rules here. 
Really quite crochet or knit a square or stripe
 every day or every week  in 2014 that represents your mood.

So I got started picking my yarn colors and moods.
Easier said than done!
Instead of picking my moods and trying to find a color,
I choose my colors and then assigned the moods.
I am using Caron Simply Soft yarn.  Love it!

I began crocheting my little heart out - a granny square a day.
Then I realized that I would have a HUGE blanket by the end of the year.
So I decided to make 3 blankets - each representing 4 months of moods.

Here is Roxey modeling the first one:

And here is my second one is progress:

These guys are waiting their turn to be added:

To say I am behind would be a grave understatement!
But I'm getting it done...slowly!  Very, very slowly!

My final one will be a granny stripe blanket something like this:

This is one of many gorgeous creation by Lucy at Attic 24.

There is a Crochet Mood Blanket Facebook Group.
And if you just Google
Crochet Mood Blanket 2014 
you will find lots of blog posts and images.

Happy crocheting, quilting, crafting, cross-stitching, creating
to you all with warm hugs!  denise  :D

  1. That's a fun idea. I was sorting through my yarn and considering making a blanket next year. A mood blanket sounds perfect
