I Call it ‘January’…..*smiley face*!!

Well, it’s the 28th January and my first month’s worth of squares is complete & together, what do you think (I needs a bloody good block to square it off, that’s for sure!!):

I have to say I have really enjoyed the first month, managed to keep up/catch up, finally decided how it will develop.  Part of me just can’t wait to see what it’s like in December!!

And so to Feb….

Week 4…The Easy Granny!!

I just wanted something simple, that pulled all my favourite colours together…..et voilá:

So just need to put them all together now!

Week 3…The Completely Random One

Week 3’s block just kind of feel together…but it sort of works….non????

Pleased with that!

Week 4 will be one, greatbigfuckoff Granny Square, in blues greens and purples…..

I am really chuffed with January, on the whole, here she is so far:

Week 2….Dream Weaver Week

And so week 2’s block is completed.  Four separate Dream Weavers all in differing colourways of Adriafil Knitcol….quite lush, even if I say so myself!!

The LYB – January……In The Begining There Was CARNAGE!!!!

Well there is nothing like planning…..and I planned nothing!!  The method went something like this:

a) Pick up a hook, owt will do…..

b) Pick up some yarn, as above

c) Pick a pattern, as above & above

d) CROCHET!

So my first few squares were born….

As a typical Piscean, I of course needed somewhere pretty to put my completed squares…..shame I had to eat a fuck load of gingerbread first!!

And then there were three……

Now, there is a bit of a story behind the hexagon, it was meant to be a square, but I was engrossed in Celeb Big Brother & got carried away with my sides….et voilá…

So after a few days I had a little collection….

And of courss needed some extra literature, for reference of course (not just to look at the pretty pictures)…*cough*

And with the help of my lovely new books I was able to get ahead of myself for a few days

The Dream Weaver….now this has fast become probably my favourite pattern, but fuck me it took some working out!!  So much so there is a whole post dedicted to it!  So here they are, finished at last

As I work part time, one week on one off in the evenings and at weekends, already I am finding that on working weeks I just don’t seem to find the time to do all, or sometimes any of my squares.  Last week I worked….this poor, single, solitary square was all I could muster up.

But somehow we have managed to limp our way through the first three weeks, with roughly the right amount of random squares, to this point….

The theory now is that each week will result in a ‘block’, something nice & regular shaped so that the whole blanket can fit together at the end.   Week 1 is the only one so far finished though….

BUT….I do have another sparkly tin, a pretty box, another book and a notebook to donate to the project!!!  :oD

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……
