Oh my, has 2015 been crazy so far (crazy in life AND in crochet projects)! After several
weeks months of not working on my Crochet Challenge 2015 project, I can safely say that I am getting back on track! Unfortunately (or fortunately), a few of my friends were getting ready to give birth, so the granny-smith blanket took a backseat to some ADORABLE baby blankets. And, honestly, I couldn’t have been happier to get to work on those! But now, it’s time to get back on track with the Crochet Challenge, in the hopes of catching up to where I should be currently, and then keep going throughout the year!
I still have a ways to go…I’m waiting on some more yarn to arrive (what started out as a stash buster quickly because a reason to buy more yarn…go figure), so there are some gaps that I need to fill in. If I had the yarn that I needed, I figured that I am about a week away from catching up, if I did two granny squares a night. So, approximately 14-16 squares behind. Not impossible by any stretch of the imagination (especially because I was much further behind about a week ago), it will just take some concentration and hard work. I should be completely caught up in two weeks time, max! I also need to order more yarn, once I take inventory of what I have and what I need. I am so pleased with how it’s turning out! For awhile there, I was feeling very “meh” about the project, because I am absolutely horrible at anything “random.” I am a pattern girl, through and through, and I really struggled with how a blanket with randomly placed colors would look. However, now that I am further along with it, I am definitely falling in love! I can’t wait to see the finished product and to put it on the bed!
Here’s what I have so far…ignore the gaps, I’m just waiting on my Plum color to show up in the mail!
