Good evening all, Tuesday’s here again – time to join Hazel’s link party and update on my Crochet Mood Blanket. Boy is it getting big! Already longer than I am and still 4 more triangles to attach. Hey ho, it’ll be a weighty finished item. I always like to veer on the side of caution as I worry things will be too small – this is why I do not sew!
I am looking forward to some sunny Spring snaps so that you can see the true colours as they are much more vivid, but also softer, than these images imply. I love the fact that I would not choose these colours for a blanket but they work so well. I do miss my yellows and browns but I do not feel ‘yellow’ so it cannot appear in my mood blanket. As I have discovered that the weather affects what colour I ‘feel like’ on any given day, brown may start creeping in during the course of the year.
It has been a revelation that I feel so pink for positive days full of family and friends, whereas the working week tends to lean towards various shades of purple depending on stress levels. Beige and greys are for those dark, Winter days, although they do not necessarily imply a dip in mood, just weather conditions! The blues come out when the sun is shining and my mood soars – finding myself outside for at least part of the day definitely lifts my spirits, even if it is just for P.E.. My moss-green day stands out as when I felt most connected to nature this year at the Birmingham Nature Centre (read about it here), though I envisage more green creeping in as the trees begin to leaf. The colours definitely dulled to match my mood towards the end of last week so I am pleased to see the brighter shades return as I regain the spring in my step.
If you are taking part in the Mood Blanket 2014 party, please leave a comment so that I can see how yours is coming on.
Back soon! x
