I finally decided on a plan for my new blanket. After playing around with loads of blocks I figured that simple is best! If I have to follow a pattern I start to lose interest, so I adapted a plain granny square with a circular centre and came up with this.
It's so simple I can churn them out while watching tv or chatting, but I think the round centre adds a nice softness. Sticking to one colour means only one end to weave in and I should be able to do that when joining them, Yippee!! I've joined a few together to see how they'll look and I absolutely love the result. I think the dinky blocks of colour with lots of cream ( Sublime "Alabaster") is really pretty, like a paint box :)
I've used most of the colours from my last blanket, but I've been on the hunt for some more. Sticking to superwash wool or merino means I can mix them all in the same blanket. Hopefully the ones on order will be what I'm after. They can sometimes be wildly different from how they look on the website. I'll let you know when they arrive.
