~~~ UPDATE JANUARY 2013 ~~~
I have started a new blog called Nittybits where you can find a tutorial of the Sunburst Granny Square Blanket! It contains information about the pattern, how to join the squares and the yarn I used. Feel free to check it out here:
First of all: happy new year everyone! :) I hope you enjoyed the holidays and have a colourful and happy 2011!
Second of all: I am happy to say I can start this new year with a brand new finished project!!! :D
Remember those Sunburst Granny Squares I was working on back in August? (You can find the pattern HERE.)
I started with one...
... which grew into a pile...
... which grew into a whole bunch of them!
And a few months after I started, I had finished 36 squares!
Aren't they the sunniest, happiest grannies ever?! :D I absolutely adore them!
After lining them up in a pretty formation it was time to join them together...
... and there you have it: a brand new Sunburst Granny Square Blanket!!! :D
Am I pleased with the result? Sure! The lining was a bit wobbly, so I'll have to mind that next time. But on the whole this little, happy blanket makes me very happy!
All it needed was a pretty ribbon...
... and the Sunburst Blanket was ready to go to its new owner: our brand new baby niece!
Let's just hope she'll enjoy it as much as I would :)
