It’s Done!!!!

You’ve seen this project so often last year, the only thing I’m going to do now is show you the finished project. 52 weeks, 60 rounds, 2967 yds of yarn, 1120 grams out of my stash, lots of “I can do this, I can do this”, resulted in this beauty to cuddle with whenever I want.  The last couple of rounds were killers but it was all totally worth it.

So here it is, my 2014 Mood Blanket in all its yarny glory:

Enuff said … off to go snuggle through these brutal temps under my new baby!!!

Now if I can only get it away from my 14 y.o. cousin ….. 😀

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?  😀
