My Year-long Scrapghan CAL progress

Ok, so a challenge was put forth to use stash/not buy yarn. I commented that I joined a CAL on Facebook that is 14 squares released every 3 weeks, make 4 of each design to make a blanket of 56 (7x8) squares at the end of the year. I’m using only stash, so it’ll be a scrapghan…
I figured I’d keep anyone that is curious updated here in one place (I also update my Instagram and Facebook page, but this way anyone in here that wants to follow the journey can do so easier…)
So here was my original yarn/square numbers layout, each square will get photographed and added to the collage until all are done, then I’ll do a final update once joined…


(I do have to switch the bottom left corner 3 to pink and the top right (almost) corner 6 to blue so that I don’t have any square design having the same color)

Here was week 1, I finished just before week 2 was released

Week 2 was finished just after week 3 was released, but to forever to block and photograph

I haven’t forgotten about updating… I’m almost done with the 4th square of design 4, but my daughter’s Christening blanket has taken precedence
(Here’s my post explaining this difficulty haha)

Here’s a long overdue, but not great update…
I’ve slowly been working on the squares, but haven’t had much chance to properly block and photograph (or for the last 4 squares I made, haven’t even buried the ends yet​:woman_facepalming:t3:)… So here is a crazy pic of the designs 4 & 5… I think design 10 has already been released, so I really need to catch up :woman_shrugging:t3:

I’m either AMAZING at sticking to it, or TERRIBLE… There seems to be no in between… I usually don’t start something unless I have all the yarn in the beginning so that’s not my usual problem… It’s either time, or startitis :laughing:
