new crochet project

I have been playing around with a few different granny square patterns using some lovely coloured King Cole Bamboo cotton I had .
I have been inspired by a great crochet blog MeMeRose .She is making a spring blanket with a lovely pastel colour palette . Having some time off over Easter hols from the usual busy making of the clay variety I had some fun with some crocheting.
I decided to make a large spring blanket of my own .I am using Stylecraft Special which has a good colour range for a more budget wool , as it's going to take alot of wool !!Here are the colours I am using.

I make the coloured centres first then do the white border and join as I go with a method of joining with a slip stitch instead of a chain between each cluster (find this on Attic24 blog).This method is great as the blanket grows as you make rather than all that sewing together at the end!

Here is a sneak preview of the first section I have completed ,it is 10 x 5 squares which is an 1/8th of the whole blanket which is abit daunting!!

I'm really pleased with how the colours look together ,I hope I have the staying power to finish the whole blanket ....
