I know it’s been awhile since my last post, but all I could share would have been yet another stack of squares. I took this photo on Saturday. Pardon the ugly mess everywhere around the blanket.
I’m slowly filling in that space with squares. It’s getting there! That’s 120 squares right there; 180 more to go!
I lost my hook at the beach on Saturday. I heard it fall but I thought it fell into my bag, so when I got home and couldn’t find it, I knew exactly what had happened.
Incidents with my tools always happen around the Boy.
I’m serious. I’ve snapped two needles at his house before this. I guess I’m just more accident prone around him.
Anyway, I digress. I’ve already misplaced my hook earlier this project, and missing that week of work was torture, so I immediately went to buy a new one.
Not as gorgeous a blue as the old one, but oh well. That’s the price I pay for not being careful.
It’s so hard to be motivated with this blanket right now. I’m at 25% and I can barely make myself crochet another square. I know I will regret it in winter, so I press on…
Last Tuesday, I lost my hook. I could not find it. But it magically appeared on Saturday.
By then, I was sick and unmotivated to crochet. Sunday, I felt better and since I didn’t have anything else to do (I skipped church and Reach [my fellowship group]) so I just crocheted. I’m pretty sure I can finish another row by Friday.
Pardon the background stuff. I’m running out of room to photograph, and it’s going to be worse soon cuz I plan on sewing them in the other direction next…
Having a goal for the week is really helpful in keeping me on track with this project. I spent a couple of hours on Wednesday sewing some of the squares together and now all of the completed ones are sewn together. It’s nice to see my progress, but at the same time, I still have a long way to go…
I bought some gingham fabric to help me block the squares. After all, I still have 255 squares to make and block.
(Btw, blogging from my phone is so convenient. I have no excuse to not blog anymore.)
P.S. Today is the last day to enter my little contest!
This is what I’ve been working on (almost) exclusively. 40 squares already. The bottom two stacks are blocked, but the top two are not. Just 260 more squares to go…
Btw, don’t forget to enter my contest for a free pattern! =]
I just reached 50 follows! I have to say, I think that’s pretty crazy, since I’m an inconsistent blogger, to say the least.
This calls for a celebration! (Penny reference)
