I'm finding that the New Year has at the moment made me want to be a
little more organised with my Crocheting.
How long this will last for, I haven't a clue. Come the end of
January I might think "Oh Sod it" and carry on in my usual
haphazard way. My daughter Amie looks at my baskets of ongoing projects
and tells me it's called Organised Chaos.
So at this moment I would like to try and finish some projects before
starting any more.
This blanket I started back in June/July time. I pick it up now and again,
but the odd row here and there isn't helping to make it grow.
So I decided that along with doing my square a day challenge, for the Mood
Blanket, I would also crochet 2 rows a day, 1 coloured, 1 cream. It already
measures 41" wide and 27" long, 30 days of crocheting 2 rows gives me
another 15". Not really sure how long I would like it to be, but if I stick to
this plan, it might be finished by February.
These little fellows are coming along nicely, still haven't worked out
how many I need as I may be a bit daunted with the amount. I've made about
a 100 so far, 20 of each colour, I did also have a peach flower, but it didn't
seem to look right with the colours I'd already used, so I stoped making
those. Might start joining some together with the Join As You Go method,
then I'll get a proper idea of what it's going to look like.
This project I started between Christmas and the New Year.
I know I started it the wrong side of Christmas, but I found the idea
while browsing blogland, as you do.
As soon as I saw it, I wanted to make it. It's designed by a very talented
crocheter Sarah Zimmerman, and her blog is "Repeat Crafter Me".
I have made all the pieces, except the bunting. Then I put it in a Baggie
so I could start the Mood Blanket and it hadn't come out since.
months. If I can just get a couple of projects completed I can then
start some of the ones that are whizzing around in my head.
Take care and have a good week
