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.
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 simple...you 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
