Brightening up January

Hello!
I'm not a fan of January, it's far to dull for my liking.
 Time to brighten it up a bit!
Dawn this morning was beautiful.
Very cold
but very pretty!

The main part of my new blanket is done.
I still need to sew in the loose ends, and I'd like to add a border. I think the border will change it from a large crochet square into a blanket.


I made the little fiddly flowers to go with this blanket

I was thinking they would look nice all the way around the edge.


P thinks it might be too much!
I'm not sure, I really love the idea of a blanket surrounded by flowers! 

Till next time!

  1. I think the flowers would look really nice (but would take ages!!) what pattern did you use if you on't mind me asking. I love how the leaves are behind them.

  22. I love your colors! Oh this blanket looks SOOO cozy wonderful!!

    What yarn are you using? Is it an acrylic?

    PS - looks like a variation on a shell stitch. Sort of like this:

    Wanted to say - I've been searching all over for a matching pattern as this blanket is simply to die for. I've had no luck. I think it's a variation of a shell stitch. Could you share the pattern?? Pretty please?

  41. Beautiful blanket! How long did it take to complete? What size it is?
    I think you should put the flowers just along the top edge, maybe the bottom also, but not all the way around.
