This crafty project is popping up everywhere at the moment - as far as I can make out, the challenge is to hook either a square a day or a square a week for the whole year, worked in shades that represent your mood. A pretty epic challenge! I was too late to catch on this year, but will make sure I have my eyes peeled earlier in 2014 to plan my projects ahead.
This wobbly little granny square blanket started when I got second mitt syndrome with the herringbone mitts. I started compulsively making granny squares with the odd single balls lurking in my stash. It's all rather addictive. I'm not sure how it's going to look yet, although I quite like this ombre arrangement. The plan is to keep making squares till completely run out of yarn (or sanity) and then play around with the placement.
I'm a crochet blanket newbie (and still haven't finished knitting that Weasley blanket), so any advice on joining methods and how to stay motivated with longer projects would be most welcome! What new projects are you getting stuck into for 2014?
