new granny square love


Hello! I thought I would show you the start of my next crochet creation. Inspired by the sunburst granny pattern at Sarah London's page, this is my next blankie, maybe for my sisters new baby in January or maybe not! These 2 photos show the squares without the orange ones...





.....and these are the squares with the orange rounds. Has a completely different feel doesn't it?






I think I might make something with just this colour palette, I quite like the coolness of the blues, red, white, and greens all together.





Here are the first 9 completed squares all mixed up together, I am happy with the colours and how they sit together. I think it should look nice and cheery and bright when its all finished, the orange gives it a bit of a lift I think. We will see how it looks as it grows!

Have a great weekend, we are off to Melbourne for a night in the city with the family, should be fun! Bye!

  2. Oh I love the grannies! I will have to go and find her patterns, I love unusual grannies...
    orange is such a funny colour isn't it! I like the way the orange lifts the other colours, but I also like the ones without.
    No help sorry!!!
