Mood Blanket 2015

A couple of years ago I taught myself how to crochet, annoyingly I have a couple of projects left unfinished because I always seem to get distracted by other things. This year will be different (I swear) and I'll get things finished!



We had a health issue in the family this year and when I found the Mood Blanket idea on another blog and told the other fellow crafty people in my family about it, we all decided to do one so we can all compare our years and health by the end of 2015. For my health, I'll be tracking how many seizures I've had over the year because if I can go for a year without one I'll be allowed to learn how to drive!

To make a Mood Blanket you crochet/knit/quilt (whatever you want) a different square each day depending on what mood you're in with corresponding colours. My colours are:

Teal = tired/ill
Red = angry
Pink = happy
Blue = sad
Gold = seizure 

For day one I'm still feeling the affects of alcohol so I'm clearly tired with a headache so that means teal! I've gone for a 9x9 granny square and will be binding all of them together using ivory. 


As I'm still getting back into the swing of crochet, this took me a couple of hours, mainly because it wasn't neat enough so I ended up getting annoyed and starting again more than once! But square one is done now and I hope to get faster and better at it as the year goes on.


Are you doing any crafty projects this year?

    1. All good this end! Hope you're good too :-)

      You should give this a go, even if you do one square a week instead of every day. I'm off to buy some more yarn now!
