One a Day Project - Tuesday's Tallies
So, here we go, the first blog post for the One a Day Project. I'll be blogging about the One a Day Project every Tuesday and hosting a 'Mr Linky' so that anyone else joining in with the project and blogging about it too can join in the fun! I am keeping my fingers very tightly crossed that it works!
The original idea of the One a Day Project was to pick a larger project and work just one element of it everyday until it's finished. There was such a lot of interest in the idea of 'One a Day' that I started a Ravelry group which you can find here. I'm loving that because it's not a tradition KAL/CAL people are using the group to work on all kinds of projects and it's so much fun seeing what everyone is choosing to use the group for. I'm really delighted that we have 220 members is just over a week too. Please come and join in if you haven't already!
So onto my project, I'm sure you all know what my project is but as this is the first of the 'Tuesday's Tallies' I thought I would just give you all the details again. The project I have chosen is Sunny Spread and my goal is to make a blanket large enough for our king size bed. From today I will work one of the individual squares everyday. Once I have four squares, I will join them together so I have groups of four. I'm using King Cole bamboo cotton yarn in lots of different colours to make the circles and then using off white to edge them all.
I have one more ball to add to this selection, which should be here soon. The very pale one on the left is actually a really nice shade of pale blue, which obviously doesn't photograph so well!
I know my 'official' start date is today, but I've been busy working up one group of four so I could see how it looked. Would you like to see?
It's square in real life I promise! I've joined the squares together with a slip stitch join and then done a row of double crochet around all four blocks. I've blocked it very lightly, by pinning it so it's square and popping a damp cloth on the top.
So time for the fun bit! If you would like to participate in 'Tuesday's Tallies' please add your details below, remembering to use your the link for your post rather than your blog. You don't have to leave a comment (although it's very lovely when you do!) and it would be great if you could visit some of the links too. If you are participating please could you link back to this post :)
