And The Beat Goes On!

I think by now, anyone who reads my blog knows that I’m making a mood blanket.   Since it’s inception, I’ve made some modifications to the original plan and have been counting down the days until I can wrap myself up in this pretty.  Some days, it was quite easy to work on, but as the rounds got noticeably longer, at points I have been slogging through getting them done.  Recently, I’d been up to 10 rows behind, got up to date, fell back again and am now 4 rows behind excluding the border.  I plan to crank those out this week so I can be done the first portion of this set.  Yes, I said set.  You’ll just have to wait and see on Jan 1, 2015, (all things being well) to see what the rest of the set is.  😉        Yesterday, while my friend was visiting, as we talked, I cranked out two more rounds!  Yay!!!  I’m not doing anymore photos of it until the set is done, so here’s the last look until the end of the year:

Mood Blanket August Update II

I think seeing the finish line and how well it’s shaping up have really renewed my energy to get this done on time rather than let it languish in my basket.   It helps also that for the Harry Potter Knit and Crochet House Cup championship on Ravelry, I’m working on this as a Detention project during the Fall term.

In addition to the blanket, this week I’ve also worked on this project I frogged.  I’m almost done the beanie itself but decided to add something special to jazz it up a bit.

 These beads will add that special finishing touch;  I can’t wait to see if the F.O. will be what I visualized in my head.

What crafty pursuits have you finished or are working on?  😀

This post is part of the Y.O.P. challenge.  See the group here on Ravelry and feel free to join in at anytime!

    Set!!?? You’ve got me intrigued, but I’ll be patient until the big reveal. That blanket is going to be so amazing to curl up in!

      I can’t wait to finish this project. Not because I’m tired of it but because I can’t wait to use all of it!

    Great blanket! I’m working on one for me too, and it’s taking ages – I’m using a finer yarn, not very wise, I know… but it was the only thing I had in stash, and I’m on a yarn diet.

    • Nicky August 31, 2014 / 7:35 pm

      Grannies of any yarn size are so pretty. True, yours will take longer but hey, when you’re done, you get a pretty to cozy up in. 😀

    The colors in that blanket just makes me smile.

    • Nicky August 31, 2014 / 7:42 pm

      Me too! They’re just so happy, I’m glad I didn’t use “gray” colours to represent any negative feelings.

    Beads? Oh yes, just the right touch for anything to give it that special umph.

    • Nicky August 31, 2014 / 7:43 pm

      I know right?!!! I’m just hoping it turns out like I think it would.
