One a Day Project - Tuesday's Tallies Week 1

The boys asked me for blankets this winter and how can I say no, the rest of the family have them in heaps all made by me.  And my boys have nothing.  The boys each have three different bed sets and are very bright.  The first one that I thought I would takle is the Turquoise and Yellow set. 

I have run out of cotton for Pudding's and his will have to wait until my LYS has a sale, I'm not getting the cotton at the regular price for this blanket.  I still need at least 20 x 50g of cotton.

Monsters is well a disaster!  I made granny sqaures of six rounds and joined them all together and have realised it's to skinny and too short but again I am running out of yarn and have no plans to purchase anymore for this blanket.

Get on with it you say

I am going to go around Monsters blanket until the yarn runs out!  I know soooo original you say, but I can't bring myself to pull it apart and make more granny squares, not in a crochet mood at the moment, but to get it finished I will do one round a day.

I pulled it out yesterday and did one round in Turquoise.



Pop over to Gingerbread Girl's blog to see more one a day tallies and add yourself there to.

    1. I love making blankets, I feel like a blanket machine, once I get an idea then it's all systems go but this one has me stumped, how I got it so wrong amazes me. He does love it but agrees needs to grow
