Sky Blanket May Update

As we are already a week in to June, I thought I should probably share my sky blanket May update.

For those of you who have been following along, you will know that I was being really good and keeping mostly up to date with my squares. Until, that is, I fractured my wrist. After getting the green light in April from my physio to try a bit of crochet as part of my healing, I have been slowly plugging away and playing catch up. By the time I shared my April update, I was almost at the end of March, and was hoping to be back on track by the end of May.


I have continued to do the squares in batches of seven. Ticking off a week at a time means that I feel I am making good progress. At least in the making and attatching of the squares. The darning in of ends remains my nemesis. I keep leaving them because I hate that job. I am trying to force myself to do them when I get to the end of a row, though. If I don’t, I just end up getting tangled when I start attaching the next row of squares. I know this because it happened.

Anyhoo, at the time of writing I have attached the squares up to the 9th May, and have the circles ready to attach up to the 16th May. This means I am still a little bit over four weeks behind, but I am ok with that.

I am loving how my sky blanket is turning out. I also love how my children have started noticing the sky and point out things like sunsets that I should “use for today, Mum”.

So there we have it. My sky blanket May update shows some, if slow, progress. I should say that I hope to be back on track by the end of June. We all know that darning in ends will hold me back though. I would, however, like to be less than four weeks behind. That would be progress.
