:: The 100 Day Project

The magazine The Great Discontent have started an ace thing called The 100 Day Project (beginning today!)

I love projects. I love days. This sounds like the perfect thing for me. Perhaps you feel the same?!

I’m going to do 100 days of crochet. I know. It’s gobsmackingly unpredictable of me, right?! Well. No. Not really.

The thing is, I am really busting through the crochet projects so far this year, and I want to keep up the momentum. 100 days seems like a great way to do that.

The 100 Day Project

I’ve decided that on the days that I am a bit sore in the wrist (which is likely) I am going to do some reading about crochet instead. I think it’s good to plan for contingencies, esp when my wrist has been a bit of a pest in the ache department lately.

So here I go. Off on 100 Days. Follow along on my blog (right here!) or on my Instagram if you’d like to see the things I am working on. For now it will be this mini square blanket… but I might throw some other things in for good measure. I am not quite sure.

    Help! I’m searching for 2 metres of fabric printed with MAY GIBBS’ GUMNUT BABIES design. Any pastel colours but NOT the design with RED gum blossoms. Can anyone point me in a direction? Comments to this site will reach me.

    I have found lately that when I start a new project I seem to get carried away and finish things so fast, so I’m enjoying my “square a day” 2015 blanket so much because it forces me to pace myself, and it’s a joy every day to add another square and see my blanket grow, each square significant to the day it was made. I love your 100 day project, I hope you have fun xx

    I’m doing it too! Crochet I mean. I bought yarn and a hook like 2.5 years ago and now I’m FINALLY learning. I’m using your Crochet School guides – one day at a time. Then ideally I’ll just do a bit every day for the 100 days. It’s exciting and a bit intimidating!

    Pip, I read this early this morning, when the rest of the household was asleep. Since then it’s been brewing, and has made me think what I could do. I’ve decided to do 100 days of hand lettering practice, because what better way to get some good writing in!
    I love a good project, and am going to do my best to complete this one. Thanks for all your fabulousness 🙂

    Pip – I love this! This is something I can totally do!
    I started crocheting about a month ago, and am now known by friends as the crazy crocheting lady! (I have 3 blankets on the go… and many requests)

    Also, the photos above… is it going to be a scarf? or a big ‘tiny square’ blanket?

    You probably already know about it, but there is a blog called Crochet Concupicience(?) which is full of interesting crochet stuff. Might be worth a read on the days you can’t crochet!

    I should do crochet and by the end of the 100 days I might have got the hang of it! I do like those solid color squares. I will be spending my 100 days drawing a different mandala, hoping for a lovely collection by July.

    Hey Pip … I’ve started this project too. I actually heard about it in a feed over at Blog With Pip. Brilliant isn’t it?! I’m doing 100 Days of Hand Lettered Quotes for lots of reasons. I was actually a bit late and rushed doing my first day though, so it’s not a promising start. I really hope I can maintain it.

    This sounds like a great project! As much as I really want to play along I’m trying my hardest not to start any new projects (lets see how long this lasts!). Actually maybe I could do 100 days of only working on things I’ve started already…. hmmm. 🙂
