Crochet Mood Blanket Update

Remember this post about the Crochet Mood Blanket project? Well I'm now 52 days in and loving this project! It's a rather awkward size to properly photograph now, 18 squares long in 2 and a half rows, so it's long and skinny. I thought I'd get my own little model to show my progress instead of an awkward bed shot. 

I continued on with the solid granny's, but after about 10 days I decided I wanted a border colour to bring it all together, so out came the seem ripper and lots of white yarn. It took me a while to take apart, edge each square and then slip stich together but I'm so glad I decided to do it. The white adds some uniformity to all the randomness of the colours and makes it much easier to join them.

So far I have been truly random and gone for the colour which represents my mood that day, whether it's close to a nearby square colour or not. I also purchased some cute light blue sparkle yarn for special days which you can see above, this square was for valentines day so it seemed fitting to add a heart too!

Speaking of Valentines, my thoughtful husband gifted me this lovely made to order polymer hook from Lisas Hand Makes, I really recommend it as it's so comfy and it brightens up my crochet sessions nicely!

Hope you enjoy seeing how much this project has grown, it's going to be huge by the end of the year and I just can't wait to be snuggled under it next winter and be able to reminisce about each square!

Are you doing this project too?
