Rainbow One A Day

I have been a bad girl this week and done most of my One a day activity yesterday, tsk tsk I know....So it pretty much turned into six a day he he, but the main thing is that I got it done for today right?

Though I am getting pretty excited about how it is turning out, as it looks like it is coming together really well! I am just going with the flow on this blanket, I don't have a plan as to how it will turn out...so it will be a surprise to me as well as you guys.
I have thought of doing some rows of granny borders, and then possible adding more squares around the edges so it sorts of breaks up the squares a little....again I am not sure.
I just love how pretty it looks up close, I read in a book that you can join things together using dc and that is what I did. At first I wasn't sure of it as I thought it would be too raised up, but now I see it gives my blanket a wee bit of character :)

Lastly I wanted to show you my own little rainbow colour wheel, this helps me choose which colours I want to crochet together. I have started picking them in correspondence to what order they are in the rainbow...so green, yellow and orange....or red, pink and purple. It seems to work pretty well compared to randomly picking balls of wool from my collection :D

That's me for One A Day this week, hope you enjoyed reading and I appreciate everyone's loveliness. If you would like to see more people that are participating in One a Day you can check either Ravelry or Gingerbread Girl's blog, and even join in the fun if you like it!

  8. I am a big fan of crocheting squares together instead of sewing. It's coming along really nicely! Love the colour choices, it's so cheerful and bright.

    This is Tink from Master of a Thousand Things, btw. Can't comment with my Google account as it has a hissy fit when I try to sign in, and since you've got Anon switched off I can't post with Name/URL like I do elsewhere! So had to use my LJ ID!

  18. What a great way to pick colors! I need a color wheel; sweet that you made it out of yarn.
    I love the border color you chose for your Grannies. It was a perfect choice. Everything is so vibrant.

  19. I am in love with your blanket and am leaning heavily towards changing my blanket colours and going with more rainbow colours and different size granny's - in other words, more like yours!!

  20. It looks beautiful! I love it! And I especially love the way it is joined, I have been trying to decide whether or not to join my coat that way too. I think it gives it much more character and definition. I am also loving the different sized squares! Very effective. :-)

  21. I love rainbow coloured blankets. And I love the design, where the bigger squares are surrounded by the smaller ones.
