I’d like to start the next portion of the Solar System CAL with a friendly PSA: take care of yourselves! There’s some nasty cold and flu bugs going around, and lordy they really knock you on your back! After five days of doing pretty much nothing but drinking fluids and watching Netflix (thank goodness for this digital age, am I right?), I am finally starting to feel a little better. I have a little more energy at least, which means I’m able to actually work on my crochet projects again!
Thank you so much for the well wishes! I felt so awful about having to delay week 6 of the Solar System CAL, but your heartfelt messages really helped boost my spirits. Hopefully the little delay allowed some of you to catch up a bit, if you needed it. Anyway, on to week 6!
In case you missed it, week 5 of the Solar System CAL is now available. Today, we’re starting week 6, which covers rounds 90-94. This week, we’re working on more void space and Neptune’s orbit! We’re getting closer and closer to the end of this blanket, so don’t stop now!
I had hoped to have a video tutorial for Earth’s pattern available at the same time as the release of week 6, but unfortunately this cold has really taken a toll on me. Hopefully that will be available next week, if my voice comes back!
Rounds 90-94 took me approximately 3 hours to make. Scroll down a ways to see week 6’s section of the Solar System Blanket pattern!
Lots of you have been tagging me in photos of your Solar System Blankets, and I absolutely love seeing them! Please feel free to tag Two Hearts Crochet on whichever social media platform you’re using, and don’t forget to use #SolarSystemCAL! I adore seeing all of your photos, so ’em coming!
So close to the end of this blanket…you got this!
