Crochet Mood Blanket 16th January

I have completed my first row of 16 squares

It measures 151cm across 
So I should end up with a square blanket roughly155x155cm - big enough for queen bed,
With a couple of rows of border.
(also, a couple of cm bigger than me!)

Ribbed Beanie with Pom Pom

My first finished project of 2014.
A ribbed beanie with cute little pom pom on top.

I got the idea for this from All About Ami
who found the pattern from Lion Brand Yarn

Crochet Mood Blanket 2014

Crochet-A-Long hosted by mummy_stacey on Instagram 

"A great idea to make a blanket consisting of a square-a-day (or week) and using different colours to reflect your mood on Instagram."

I'm doing the square a day - but may only end up with 196-225 squares, as I don't want a massive blanket.

I am aiming to make a blanket 140cm x 140cm, each square being 10cm x 10cm.

I have 8 base colours, and each square will be surrounded with a border of white. I will be joining as I go as well.

These are my colours; Orange, Red, Light Blue, Magenta, Turquoise, Yellow, Purple and Green.

As opposed to assigning each colour to a mood - I will be crocheting whatever colour I feel like doing that day.

2014 . . . Here We Go

Another Year is Over
And I'm looking forward to
Accomplishing so much more this year.

First of all - instead of some resolution that I won't
Remember by the end of January,
I'm declaring  . . .

Hopefully now that I've told the internet
I'll actually be able to stick to it!

I hope everyone had a safe and happy new year!
