Blankets An Update

I've been working on my ripple blanket a lot in the evenings this past week.
It's coming a long nicely.

The colours are looking great.

 And no sooner had I posted my last post or I changed my mind about my Sunburst Blanket.

I was using two cream colours, one for the third round and the other for the last round.
Well I found it all too cream, so because I've got loads of bits and bobs of yarn I decided to do the third rounds coloured.
So far so good!!!
Have a great weekend!!!

My New Project!!!

I know, I know.
I still have to finish my Ripple Blanket.

And my Granny Log Cabin Blanket.

It's a lot bigger than this now by the way.

But still I have started on a new project!!
I saw this blanket online and just loved it.
Look here. (This is a French blog but it's got how to pictures!!!)
It's a Granny Sunburst Blanket!!
And here are a couple of my square so far.

What really got me started on this project was not only the fact that I love the blanket I saw online, but also the weather (yeah right blame it on the weather lol).
The other two are getting so big and are so warm to be working on right now.
This Granny Sunburst is ideal because I can just make all the centre bits.
I'm thinking along the lines of making this blanket 15 squares long and 14 squares wide.
So that means I will need 210 all together.
Well I've already made 120 little centres.
So it is coming along nicely.
What I want to do is this, not make any two squares the same, apart from the cream colour of course.
I'm using 30 different colours all together.
They are all bits and bobs that I have hanging around.
And they are not all the same yarn, I mean not even within the colours themselves.
Like I am using light grey, and that light grey can be one of three different bits of light grey I have hanging around.
It's a great way to use up yarn.
And what will I do with this blanket when it's finished?
Well, I don't know yet, maybe it will be a gift for someone.
