Crochet Mood Blanket 2015

Last year I start a year long project, you can read about it here.  It was to crochet a square a day for a blanket and each colour used would be determined by my mood.

I got stuck in straight away on 1st January with my favourite colour:
And gradually it grew:
And grew:
Sometimes Maddie or Paul would pick the colours I used but most of the time I picked them myself.

The blanket now has 20 rows and 18 columns, 360 squares in total.  The last 5 days were made up of borders and I added the last stitch on 31st December using gold yarn:
I kept to a small, plain border:
With a little bit of detail for the corners:
And each day I made a note of the colour I used and why I used it in my little notebook:
And here it is in it's full glory:
And here I am feeling very proud of what I achieved:
Would I do it again?.......Nope!  I'm pleased that it got me doing something crafty every day but it did add a tiny bit of pressure.

Now I'm wondering just what will replace it in 2016.

Thanks for stopping by

Oh My Word that is beautiful - what a lot of work and I can understand how you felt pressured to make a square every day - well worth it though.
