sky blanket update march

I know, I know, it is the 9th April already, and I am well over due for my sky blanket update for March.


Before March began, I was already playing catch up. The fact that each row is so long makes catching up quite daunting. Which makes me less likely to do it. Which makes it more daunting. Which makes me less likely to do it.

And so on.

At the beginning of the month I was quite determined and was getting in two or three rows a day to catch up with myself. Then I didn’t do any for a few days and before I knew it I was back to square one.

I am currently up to the 8th of March.

Fortunately I am keeping a record of each day’s sky in my bullet journal so I can easily catch up one row at a time.

I am cross with myself and how far behind I have become. If I ever do a sky blanket again a) I won’t use a starting chain of 400 (!) and b) I will use granny squares that are quick to make and therefore quick to catch up. Maybe it’s a blip – three months in and my initial excitement and motivation seems to have vanished. Hopefully I’ll regain my mojo.

But still. I am loving the look of the blanket so far. And once I am back on track I may actually love the blanket too.
