Sophie's Universe Weeks 1-4

The Sophie's Universe blanket is a 21 part, 20 week Crochet-a-long. 

The good news is that it was started back in January of 2015.  I'm doing it a year later, so all the weeks are already published.  I have now completed the first 5 parts.  Week 1 had 2 parts, and as such, I have just completed the 4th week.  I am 1/5 of the way completed.

The blanket is already baby blanket sized.  It covers me to my ankles when I work on it.  Granted, I'm short, but still... it's already big and I have 12 more weeks to go!   I think when it is done, it will cover my queen sized bed with lots of room to spare.

That's big. 

Here are the 4 weeks in review:

Sophie's Universe

For the first time, in a LONG time, I'm doing a selfish crochet. In the past, I have done several swaps and gift items.  I've made fingerless gloves for my coworkers, hats, sweaters and blankets for babies on the way, blankets for charities, and countless hats for the homeless.

2016 is a time for me.  I might pick up a swap along the way, here or there, but ultimately, I want to make something fun and unique just for my own enjoyment!

When I spotted the Sophie's Universe CAL blanket, I was sold.  I want this for me.  Look at it!
Mine is using a different color scheme, but I'm SUPER excited about it.  I have already completed the first 2 weeks of this 20 week CAL.  (CAL = Crochet-A-Long)

There's more to come, so STAY TUNED!
