nah… i am now in a “too long an afternoon nap”syndrome. its a mistake to lay down at 4 pm.

before i fell asleep tho, i managed to learn to make one solid granny square, guided by, again by YouTube tutorial. Here it is:

yeah, did not look as good as the sunburst that i learnt last week. But it will look neat if they are joined. Here is a picture of an pillow cover made using this pattern from google image

long way to go!

p/s: so what have you been working on this weekend?

 

 

Hello there!

As promised, here is the first progress report. this simply means i have done catching up for the first 10 days of 2016.

i made 10 pcs of the squares, really very random colours and like them all!

the essentials. the small crochet bowl is for yarn tails 🙂

up close 

i also learnt that one skein of wool (50gms) can only make 10 squares. more shopping to come, then.

right. back to sunday house chores and lets see if i am in a better mood to do one more (i am pretty sure i will crochet more today). i might also learn a few more patterns…maybe the solid square or even sunburst.

p/s: thank you so much for all friends who encouraged this journey. sms, whatsapp, twitter messages encouragements are so welcomed! now i have a friend who will also be challenging herself to finish a few projects this year (weeehoo!). and thank you too my best buddy who is now offered to be my fellow yarn shopper (so blessed).

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?

IMG-20160105-WA0016_wm  yeah… this 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 🙂

 

the journey
