^That is going to turn out so awesome! I love the colors.


Alright, here are my granny squares. I haven't cleaned them up yet so it's not perfect, and it was hard to pick up the right colors in this lighting, but you get the idea. Black borders with alternating white, blue and purple (well, more of a wine color) starburst pattern.

Ah, now these colours look awesome with the black border. It's when very bright colours are used with a black border that my eyes start to melt.

I want to make a throw for friends of mine who have several sable-coloured Shetland Sheepdogs, so I'm going to use a brown border with lighter browns and beiges to match their dogs. Yay, yarn shopping!
