Crocheting is a practice that requires a lot of focus, intention, and mindfulness, which is why so many turn to it as a form of relaxation. We’ve combined these ideas with this emotion-tracking blanket.

Take a little time each day to reflect upon your day and crochet a simple square. Each day, choose a color that represents your mood. The concept is similar to a temperature blanket, but focused on your feelings instead of the weather. By the end of the 239+ days it will take to create this blanket, you might notice you're more in touch with your emotions, and you'll have a beautiful finished blanket.
