Those of you who follow my instagram will have seen a little of the progress I've made on my mood blanket so far.
For those who don't follow my instagram, why not? Get yourself over there and give me a follow!
The mood blanket is going well and is all up todate. Whoop! I got a little behind for a few days while I was ill but managed to catch up with the help of some late night Hinterland binge watching on Netflix.
From about day 5 I decided to scrap my 2 row a day thing, as on working out some numbers realsied that would result in a 3.5m blanket, which I'm sure you'll agree is a tad excessive!
I also need a few more colours. I didn't have anything for 'ill' or 'sick' so I used my 'depressed' colour.. I found a few unopened balls of Stylecraft yarn in my studio, in Meadow, Magenta and Copper.. I also have a ball of 'shrimp' but it's hideous so I'm ignoring that.
I'm not overly keen on the three new colours, but I have them and it saves buying more. I need to think a little about what moods these three new colours will be given. I think I am in need of more positive ones possibly.
To recap so far I have;
Storm Blue - Low/depressed
Mushroom - Relaxed
Teal - Happy
Silver - Tired
Khaki - Deflated
Cloud Blue - Sad/Upset
Gold - Contented/Satisfied
Petrol - Inspired
Walnut - Nervous
Grey - Stressed
Graphite - Frustrated/Annoyed
Boysenberry - Excited
So, Storm Blue is now Ill or Sick.. which means copper might be the new depressed, haha or I could just leave it at Cloud Blue for Sad/Upset... I don't know.
I'm thinking of adding Loved, Creative and Thankful..but I may just wait until I don't already have a colour to express my mood.. we shall see!
As for the blanket itself, I'm really loving it so far. The colours are working really well and I even like the three rows for when I was ill as a wedge in the middle.
What do you think of my blanket so far? Would you think about doing your own mood blanket?
