We know how benecial the rhythmic and repetitive motions of knitting can be for mental health, so we’ve combined these ideas with the Mindful Mosaic Blanket.

Take a little time each day to sit, check in with yourself and knit a simple little 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 357+ days it will take to create this blanket, maybe you’ll be able to notice some patterns, or just feel a bit more comfortable checking in with your emotions…. But no matter what, you’ll at least have a great new blanket!
