Only 40 Squares Left - Wednesday Blanket Update

Feels like ages since the last post about my blanket progress. It is progressing, believe me :) Though I had days completely crochet-free, I then had to overtake them in order to face at least some "deadlines", you know, I put such for myself. Here are fresh photos of the summer blanket - I love it so far! Can't wait when I finish last 40 squares, join them into blocks and make a soft snug blankie!
 One more photo for the history, just kidding. I know people make much more beautiful and complicated crochet things, but feeling of something you make with your own hands, and okay, this something is useful and is looking good, is one of the best feelings in the world (after love of course). I am sure it'll look much more impressive once I make a suitable border. The intuition says me that I will make until the winter starts... again. Then I can continue/commence other projects, many of which unfortunately haven't found any manifestation yet.
Just a short note that we are safe here in the foot hills of Himalayas during these early monsoon rains. Thanks for showing your care, my dears! I hope that Ganga will stop its devastating floods in Uttarakhand state, and let people obtain sanctuary and security again.
Wishing you all be safe whenever you are! Hugs!

  14. Looking very promising and like a blanket of love - of course you pour your heart into every stitch you hook and that is the most magical part. It is magic only you and your hook can do together, be proud and waiting for the border reveal!!

    Stay safe also, hearing lots of bad reports on the net. My hubby had been to Haridwar just this Monday and i feel we are very lucky to have him back safely :)

  18. You really have a good eye for colour - never in a million years would I have thought to combine such a range of colours together but it looks fantastic! I can hardly wait to see your finished project! :)

    Glad to hear you are safe from the flooding, Hindustanka. We are in a state of emergency today, too. I guess it's raining and flooding all over the world! :o(

    1. Thank you, Insomniac! :) I know your color palette selection is quite different, but I also do like purple and black colors.

      Yes, it seems so, as I got info that Europe, particularly Germany was flooded too. What is going on? Here the latest land slide and the rains brought a lot of destruction to people's life.
      Stay safe!

    I have heard about the floods in India and Nepal, and it is good that you are safe. A friend of mine is in Nepal right now, but she is okay as well.

  24. Awesome progress...it looks pretty large already. What's the size you are aiming for? Glad you're all ok, I've been away the past week so only got to know about the events at Uttarakhand today...furious at the apathy shown by the govt!
