Here Comes the Sun (WIP)

The Sunburst Granny square is one design I've spent an abnormal amount of time obsessing over. I've googled imaged it, etsy searched it, pinned it, saved it to my desktop. So when my cousin sent me a text with an image she saw in a book and a "Can you make this?!?!?!" plea, there was no getting around it.

I dug out a pattern I had printed before, but there were 8 rounds in that sucker. 8 rounds! I mean, it was pretty and all. But 8 rounds? The prettiest part of the square is the very center. So I decided to scale it back. I tweaked and edited and skipped the fluff. 

Ready for the result?

these first few images were taken with my crummy camera,
but they get the job done)

Yuuuum. Yum. Oooh my, yum.


I've been working on this blanket all weekend long, mostly outside while my boys play in the yard. It's so delightful to hook up some squares, playing with colors and watch the trees (now covered with leaves) go woooosh woooosh in the wind. I have good vibes about this blanket. Good vibes, indeed.


And I can't wait to write this pattern out for everyone! It's everything I love about crochet:
easy
fast
colorful
fun
funky
versatile
etc
etc
et cetera.
=D

Check back often for the Sunburst Blanket's progress.
The pattern will be with the "Finished!" post. 
I'm soooo excited!

Here comes the sun, little darlin', here comes the sun.
and I say, it's all right.
