Mood Afghan 2015

Hi everyone. I'm always trying to find a way to stay on top of my works in progress. I just started a big one through the mood blanket crochet-a-long on Facebook. So I think I'll make a separate blog page for that and try to keep track of it every few days. Since it is a freestyle project with no pattern this should be entertaining. It will fit better in my other crochet blog so I'll have to link you over to it.

The spiral was Day 1 and the circles were Day 2.

Day 2: Pink circles

Days 3 and 4: Purple oval with lavender border

Idea: Granny Square House Slippers

I've been toying with the idea of making house slippers, but frankly a lot of them are butt ugly. Then I ran across this pair of House Slippers for granny square booties. I should try this.

Crocheting Right Along

When I saw that the pillow forms on Hobby Lobby were 30% off I decided to make a spiral pillow. I worked on it at the Fanciwerks Knitting shop on Wednesday and then again yesterday at home.

Also here is the daily afghan square I made yesterday.

The pattern is in the Complete Photo Guide to Crochet by Margaret Hubert
I just noticed 2 mistakes on this. I've already attached it to another hexagon so I'll probably just leave it.

Purple, Black and Yellow Hexagons For My Mood Afghan

I enjoyed using these colors so much last night that I decided to use them again today, only in a different order.

Mood Afghan Work in Progress and New Spiral Pillow Project

Today at the knitting shop I started making a four colored spiral to turn into a pillow. But I haven't taken photos yet. I did take photos of my last two hexagons for my mood blanket. And a peek of what the whole blanket is going to look like.

I'm sewing it as I go so it's not too tedious at the end.

Bright eyed hexagon.

More subtle shades.

Hexagon Mood Afghan Update

In order to have all my hexagons in one place I've made a Flickr album here. Hopefully anyone can see it and you don't have to be a member.

Thursday's and Friday's Hexies

Zingy colors

It got dark before I had a chance to join the new hexies last night.
I guess everyone interpreted the rules differently. I thought it meant 'see what mood you are in each day and choose colors accordingly' but it scrolling through the Facebook group I see many monochromatic afghans (as in all shades of brown or whatever). It makes my heart sing when I see multicolored afghans like mine though. I love color. The only time I would make a beige anything is if that was the only color available, like if I was in a prison camp or something.
