I thought I would post my first update of my mood blanket. After four days of picking colours according to mood I am quite liking the way it's turning out. That initial chain stitch is a little tight though. A friend has told me over and over again to always do the foundation chain using a larger hook and then switch to the right size. I always forget. Well, in future I will remember. I have thought about taking it out again but after four days of colours I really don't want to do that.
My darker colours for darker moods also arrived. Again, I quite like them so it will be hard to choose one for a bad mood. Will just have to wait and see what colour I feel like using when that happens. That blue at the front is a little too bright for bad moods anyways.
Speaking of, I have worried that when it comes to picking my colour I will be swayed by matching with the previous days colour. Or I will develop a pattern. I don't do random very well. However, so far I have been proud of myself. For example, I chose blue on the third day. I was a little reluctant because I didn't think it would match the teal from the day before. I went with it anyway because it fitted my mood and as luck would have it they did go well together.
So here are my moods so far;
Day 1 - Hot pink, excited, tired and lots of laughs
Day 2 - Teal (my favourite colour out of the bunch), feeling productive, fun with knitting group friends, touched by a gift and wine!
Day 3 - Electric blue - very tired, sad at the end of GBBO, satisfied at the end of a good book, excited over a new project
Day 4 - purple - mood started out terrible, felt stressed and very tired, unmotivated, this changed after clarification in class and time with friends.
