I didnt remember how it happened, but last weekend I found myself ogling pictures of knitted and crochet blankets.

now you must know by now that i am a little bit here and there in hobby front. and please know that i started to play with yarn and crochet needles since i was 13. i only learnt to knit in 2010, when i was in my short visit to my friend’s place in dxb.

so anyhow, i have always wanted to knit or crochet myself a nice blanket. so the last weekend stumbled upon the images kinda ignite my so called desire (haha).

last few days i went to Spotlight after work and guess what… they are having yarn sale for 50% off. so what do you think happened?

and i began my Granny Squares blanket journey that very night.

its إن شاء الله will be a cream bordered blanket. now i am going to do this as my “mood blanket” project. it means:

  1. i will crochet a square each day, selecting 3 color combinations according to my mood that particular day.
  2. if i skipped a day, i will have to make it up the next day. by 31st December 2016, I should have 366 squares and will use up the 1st Jan 2017 public holiday to join them.
  3. to hold myself accountable for this project and keep me motivated, i am going to post my progress every weekend.

since i did not start on 1st Jan, i have some catching up to do, so i will show the first result soon as i catches up.

hopefully ill get to show you the finished project, something like this one:

ogle first 🙂
