Good morning my friend!
A new start of the year with a new project…
You can nerver guess how much I am excited by this project!!
Let me tell you all about it so maybe you join me…
A lovely Instagram friend (Mummy_Stacey) is behind this project. She suggested to make 1 square per day or 1 square per week during 2014 depending on your mood…
If you make 1 square per day you’ll have end2014 a blanket with a total of 365 squares.
If you make 1 square per week (and here you can crochet a bigger square) you’ll end up with a blanket of 52 squares.
You choose each day (or week) a color to crochet your square with and this color must reflect the mood you are in…
You can have more details and info on Mummy-Stacey instagram here.
There is a facebook group too for all the members. And a ravelry group.
I decided to join the fun and make a square/day. I chose carefully the design of my square. It is a very simple one. 5 rows of 12 treble each and a last round of 1sc-3ch-1sc around the square to join it to the others as I go…
January 1 : light purple: Feeling very sleepy all day long
Here are my squares joined -as-I-go so far:
January 2: Yellow: The energy is back and I felt in a very happy and full of energy mood
January3: Turquoise: I was thinking about vacations and was feeling a little blue…
Did you noticed how I joined my squares?
I joined them after a 90deg rotation of each one… I love the idea of having a patchwork of crochet in the end
I prepared a sheet and decided to make a blanket of 360 squares like you can see on this paper:
I will crochet 30 squares each month. When the month is 31 days I’ll have a free day
I’ve already crocheted january 1, 2 and 3…
I’ll keep this sheet in my everyday filofax
I’ll use yarn from my stash – mostly leftovers and pick up the color each evening depending on how was my day …
I hope that this blanket end 2014 will be full of bright and happy colors
So, my friends, did you like this wonderful idea? Would you like to join the fun?
Come on! grap your hook and crochet a square…(It can be any square you want…a granny…african flower…a square you love in particular)
Each square took me 7 minutes with the joining part…7 little minutes per day for crochet all over the year…It is easy to do… and the result will be a cherished blanket with a full year of memories behind each small part of it
So? Are you still thinking? We are already more than 1000 crocheters around the world…
A beautiful worldwide crochet-along
And we are waiting for you to join
Happy day to all!
