Crochet Mood Blanket 2014

Hello everyone!!! I finally have a blog, wahoo!!! So I better give a bit of background on what all this mood blanket stuff is about...

So I started crocheting back in April 2012,  I've had a hook in hand near enough everyday since! But I've never made a big blanket... I decided to give myself a challenge and came up with the idea to crochet a block every day, picking a colour that depicts my mood. 
I put this out to my Instagram friends and somehow from there it went viral!!

The lovely Hannah (@hananathebanana) set up a Facebook page for the project, so between IG and Facebook I think there must be about 2,000 people having a go!!! Amazing! 

Anyway, as this is my first blog post this is all new to me, will leave it here for now and will return shortly!
