Sunburst Blanket!!

 
I have been wanting to make this blanket for such a long, long time!
 
teppe2
Flowers in the Snow! by Solstrikke. 
I love everything about it. 
All the gorgeous colors, the total randomness,
the simple border, everything!!
 
 
  
This one by Gillian is so beautiful. 


 I love what she calls her "ordered and systematic randomness"!! 
So funny how we all work in such different ways to create.

This one here and here and here! 
I love them all! 
So many colors. 
Such happy blankets...


Sunday night, I gathered all my odds and ends and
started making my circles... 
I took Solstrikke's pattern and added a fourth row 

 
then the border...


 

then joined my first four...



 
they are flying off my hook... 







a long weekend of nothing at all coming up. 
 Nothing but circles turning into squares!!

  14. WoW. That's going to be spectacular. I have always wanted a granny square blanket but I have such a hard hard time with crocheting the siplest thing that it always falls way down the "to-learn" list. In the meantime, I will admire yours as it grows. Please do keep sharing.

  26. I have secret hankerings for a flowers in the snow blanket - I love them but I'm not sure I'd have the patience; it would take me years! Good luck to you; happy crocheting. x
