The Leap Year Blanket

Well hello!!  Let’s see just how long I manage to keep this up, because I have sooooooo much spare time on my hands….no, really!!

I am making a Leap Year Blanket, supposedly crocheting or knitting a square a day.  Doesn’t happen like that though, as with most of my plans it has already gone a bit tits up, and I just do squares whenever I can.  Until two days ago there was no method to the madness, and I was just randomly producing squares willy-and-indeed-nilly.  Now I have decided that I will do a block a week , hoping and praying that said block with resemble a square/rectangle that can easily be attached to other blocks to form a nice uniform blanket shape at the end of the year!!!

So, each week I will either choose 4-5 balls of yarn and use just those colours, or choose one pattern…..or something like that.

And without further ado….meet ‘Week 1’

Weeks 2 & 3 are almost done, and week 4 might just be one fuck off great big square!!

But February….now February excites me.  I have a birthday at the end of the month, a big birthday…..my 30-10th.  To celebrate this, each week in Feb will represent a decade of my life…..have some A.M.A.Z.I.N.G. ideas on how to mark various occasions & people.  I have dedicated a notebook to the cause.  Excitamon……!!!

Anyhoo….for now, just for fun, see the carnage that is the start……

    Can’t wait to see your February squares! I’m already behind on my blanket to the tune of about 8 squares *slaps hand*. Our finished blankets are going to be amazing though (and the biggest fuck off blankets ever…)
