Many of you have asked me what I intend to do with my blocks, I'm going to make a blanket. Initially I was going to alternate the patterned blocks with a plain one coloured block but I have since decided just to join them randomly.  I have to say I'm not particularly looking forward to sewing them all together as I find it hard to sew knitted blocks together neatly, I find joining crochet blocks is so much easier so it is going to be a bit of a challenge for me.

This is week 36 of the challenge so I am bang on target and will keep going until I have  52 blocks one to represent each week of the year I will then decide how many more I need to add to make a decent sized blanket, I'm thinking I may have to make 4 extra but that's to be decided later. :)

Progress -  number of different blocks made = 36
Numbers - 181417, 19,24, 26 30,31,34,36 4041, 42,43,44, 45,48, 5256,58,6267,70,90,92,96 98,100113,133,153,165,177, 200209
