Yes, it’s finally here! I’ve been blogging small bits about this piece for the last couple months, and now it’s here. With seven different granny squares hooked together to make a blanket about the size of a twin sized bed, The Red Blanket Part II is now completed. You can’t even tell that I ran out of the multicolored yarn, unless you look really closely.
There’s a total of 45 squares. Not bad. The original Red Blanket had 25 squares, and this is just a heavily modified version of the original.
In other news, you may remember that I was trying to lose some weight a couple months ago. I’m happy to announce that I was sort of successful, as I’m not at my goal weight yet, but I did lose weight. 🙂 Just losing 5 pounds really changes how you look (and feel)! I was very surprised. Continuing with that, there’s a website called DietBet, where you are basically betting against yourself (and maybe thousands of other people) with real money to try to lose 4% of your weight in 28 days. I’ve signed up for one, and as I’m really conservative/serious about money, I WILL DEFINITELY LOSE THE 4% OR ELSE!! Yeah, I think it’s a really good motivation. If I do manage to lose the 4%, then I’ll be at my goal weight! This is happening; it’s a thing!
Lastly, two more days until my yarn giveaway ends. Be sure to enter if you want some nice yarn! 😀
