WIP Wednesdays: Mood Blanket June Update

This blanket seems to be the only thing I’m working on and even with this project I fell behind more than a few weeks.  Since you last saw it, I’ve made a couple of updates to my key; I’ve added the shade of pink to represent “blah” weeks.  You know — those weeks where you’re not overjoyed but you’re not sad either.

I also went with the results of this poll and eliminated the white in between each week’s colour representation.  I also moved to doing one round instead of two to represent each week so the blanket wouldn’t be too big for my bed.    Another change in the mix is I’ve decided that since this is to be a true stash busting project, I will use any shade of the colours I have keyed that’s in my stash instead of trying to purchase more matching yarn when I run out.  So at some point, you’ll see varying shades of red, magenta, pink and I believe (by my calculations) yellow.  It’ll be interesting to see how the project unfolds with this change as well.

I’m determined to catch up and stay on top of this project; my goal is to have it finished by latest the end of January 2015.  To that end, being home post surgery has given me some time to really work on it and I’ve been doing so every night this week with the help of HBO’s “Rome” series.  It’s amazing how much faster I go by timing each round completion to an episode. If I keep this up, I’ll be up to date by Sunday!  Yay!!!!!  Since the week started, I’ve added 7 rounds with 9 more to go.   By the time I’m done the remaining rounds, the blanket will be hanging off the sides and bottom of my bed.

But I know you don’t want to hear me chit chat about my plans; I know you really want to see where I am, so here it is:

Blanket of Many Colours

It’s been a while since I’ve linked my projects to any craft meme; this week, I’m linking this post to an old favourite WIP Wednesdays at Tamis Amis & Other Creations.
