The Monday Smile

Hope you all had a great weekend and your weather did what it was supposed to do for Spring.  We had rain, wind and hailstones such variety but I know it can't stay cold for much longer Spring is just a breath away just like the completion of my blanket! I am so pleased to say I am now down to......

The last 30!




I thought I would never get there but at last I can say after making 44 motifs and joining 75 last week I have only 30 more motifs to join onto the blanket. Then there will just be the border to do and the great big mood/never ending blanket can be revealed.  I'm planning a giveaway for all my followers to celebrate so stay tuned. :)


Now to keep you busy this week and get your week off to a smile, this is for those of you who want to learn how to knit. For those of you who can knit you may pick up some tips. :)






Well maybe not  

Have a great week!

  11. ha-ha! If I tried to knit, that's about how it would turn out. My cousin tried to teach me a couple of times, but I just couldn't get the hang of it. Thank goodness crochet makes a bit of sense to me. :) Have a great week. Tammy

  12. How did that guy keep his face straight through all that! The bit I liked best was when he said "I don't even care any more" as he got busy with a stapler contraption - and I can't get out of my mind the expression on his face at that time! Well done for sharing that with us Linda, I thoroughly enjoyed it!
    And well done too on your crochet progress, I'm really looking forward to seeing the completed blanket! Joy xo

  13. The video just totally cracked me up Linda, what a great find. I so want to make a red and yellow scarf with a bit of glue thrown in for good effect :-)
    I am so looking forward to the big reveal on your mood blanket .... not long now

  14. How exciting, Linda!!! 30 is a lot of squares, but they must sound like nothing after all you have made. It must feel great to be on the last leg of the race, so I cheer you on... Can´t wait to see it!
