Golden Wedding blanket

It occurs to me that although I've talked about the Golden Wedding Blanket a lot, I've not shown you a progress picture for quite some time. I've been ordering more yarn and buying more and looking at it and stroking it and generally ooohing and aahhing over it all. Just look at these colours, don't they all look so pretty together?

There is, of course, way more yarn than I need for this project. I tend to panic buy though, always wondering if I'll run out, dreading the outcome if I've not got enough to finish that one last square. But I don't think that will happen do you? (Even though secretly I'm already worried about the amount of cream yarn left for the background hearts and flowers...)

So anyway, here it is so far. I'm planning on making it 11 x 9 squares, so am not even half way yet. However, now that the Mystery Blanket is done, I can concentrate on this one much more.

Well, once I've cast on a few more new projects, completed a bit of Christmas knitting and maybe had another go at attacking a few more WIP's..

I "second" wonderwoman! You have such an eye for combining tones. Each of your blankets is lovely, and all are so different!

I'm worried about the cream, too. Best go stock up on that, I say -- or else knit really fast so you can find out now if you need more!
It looks great!
