    My 2016 Sky Blanket

I simply had to stop and continue with my other project – Sun blanket. I think I’ve done quite a good job don’t you think? I know that I didn’t make a square for every single day but I did make my squares quite big though so it was quite difficult to keep up at some point. Instead of making the blanket even more bigger I just made a new white row around each of the squares,…

Well not like my usual ones – I want to lose so much weight, I want to travel more, I want to paint my hair purple etc. Of course I still want to lose weight but by focusing only on that I get tired and sick of counting calories so when I heard about the #SkyBlanket project from ¬†Aly and Joanne I start thinking. I am not very good at knitting or crocheting but thought that maybe it was time for me to learn both and start creating nice memories for my girls. Plus by doing a…
