Designer of the Month – June

The next inspiratIOnal design you can read about is one from Sanne! She has been working on a long-term project with a long-term result: a mood blanket! Although the weather has been (thankfully) becoming less and less nice for using a blanket, she hopes to comfort you with the background story behind her design. Read all about it below!


“Throughout the year of 2022, I have been keeping track of my emotions every day. In a little notebook, I wrote down which emotion I felt the most during that day and I linked each emotion to a colour. Doing this for an entire year gave me the data to create one row for each day, coloured in the emotion that I was mainly feeling that day. Using my crochet hook and (a lot) of balls of yarn, I crocheted my mood blanket of 2022! 


From start to finish, it took me one and a half years to complete. It was quite a journey, where crocheting my emotions was both confronting and relaxing at the same time. Crocheting really brings me to a calm state of mind when the days were sometimes filled with hectic thoughts and deep feelings. Taking a moment at the end of each day to reflect upon my emotions had an impact which I hadn’t thought of when I started, but turned out to be helpful in the end. The biggest advantage now is that I have a nice and big blanket to crawl into at the end of the day”
