Another month has passed, and my Sky Blanket is getting bigger and bigger! It has long outgrown the bag that I've been keeping it in and it has become rather unwieldy to work on! This means that I've been tending to save it up and do a few rows at a time rather than pull it all out every day. It's going to be very long and thin and will definitely need a border to even up the wobbly edges, I might make it a thicker border down the sides to widen it out a bit. Luckily I have lots of yarn in a different shade of blue that I've not used for the sky colours that will hopefully look good as a border!

Here's my latest blanket photo:

Here's how my blanket has progressed so far - January, February, March, April, MayJune and July.

I was hoping when I started the project that there would be a big difference between the winter ends of the blanket and the summer in the middle, and looking at it laid out it does look as though that might be the case. Although the summer hasn't been quite as blue as I had hoped!

I can't believe that I'm two thirds through the project already!

There was a group of us taking part in the Sky Blanket project throughout 2016, and you can find us across social media, in particular Instagram, using the hashtag #skyblanket2016. The project was started by Bug, Bird & Bee, The Boy and Me and You Little Sew and Sew.

If you aren't sure if a Sky Blanket is the project for you, you might like this blog post with some more ideas for a year long craft project.

With many thanks to Make it Coats for supplying me with the yarn for this project.
