I'm doing an adult sized one too! i had a black and green one going but i lost the hook i was using to crochet it (i must kill my yarn stash for that one) so i may unravel the bits and rework it into a blankie for my cousin or my friend's new puppy, (yay for white german shepards!)

The current one is a scrapghan original, I've got tons of black yarn (thanks to a one pounder) and partial skeins up the wazzooo. So this blanket is going to be a mega stash buster! wee!

What a beautiful blanket.  I wish I knew somebody with a baby so I could try making it.

nah just make a big one for yourself!   i making one for my mother-in-law in a afghan size.  she's a pagan and loves anything celestial, heh.   im making hers in a soft and shiney yarn and a slighty sparkly yarn.  hopefully it will be done before yule... if other projects dont get in the way, heh.

I loved this pattern so much I'm working on an adult sized version as well!  So far I've used only yarn from my stash!  I'm so happy with the progress so far...it's about 5 feet from tip to tip right now, it's definitely going to be getting bigger!

Oh. My. God. I wasn't meant to read patterns. It just was never meant to be. I should have known when I started this...

Anyway, it took me an hour to do the first row! (I'm having "woman troubles" right now, as if people needed to know, so I'd say a good half an hour of that was me throwing my yarn across the room and fighting tears. I almost hit my poor dog with the yarn on accident!) Thanks to the gracious patience people have had with others, I finally got through row 1 after reading and rereading posts several times.

Then round two. The pattern is hopeless. Justlease, you saved me from completely wanting to give up. Now that I've figured out how to do row 2... I just need to get through row 3 and I'll be fine. I hope.

I love you ladies. You have no idea.

Edited to add: I've just added dansk to my list of people whom I lovelovelove. I've finished round 3 with no problems (except I skipped a dc because I didn't see it, but I realized that and was able to fix it.)

I love seeing all the star blankets I just love the pattern. I made 9 for my local animal shelter for Hugs for Homelss Animals here's a few. I made them using scrap yarn so the colors aren't that great

I like 'em, and I like the colours, as well!

And like a downward smoke, the slender stream

I showed this pattern to my mom, and she made a red, white, and blue one. When it's all done I'll steal it so I can post pics. Thanks Dansk for this pattern!

I love this blanket and I LOVE this thread. All the crochet pattern support posted gives me the courage to try my first real pattern project.

Luckily, my friend's due date isn't until January, so I should have plenty of time to figure out the pattern.

Now, I only have to decide on the color combo. I have 3 small skeins (1.5oz/170yd each) of Lion Brand Jamie Pompadour yarn in Sweet Dreams (http://www.lionbrand.com/yarns/jamiePompadour.html). The pale pink, green, yellow, and white remind me of how rainbow sherbet looks, just muted. I also have a slightly larger skein of pale lavendar boucle yarn, which I'm hoping to use as an outer stripe, a border of sorts. Of course, I have no idea if I'll have enough yarn to make a decent-sized blanket since the skeins are so small. Oh well, we shall see; crochet adventures are fun.

If I manage to become comfortable with the pattern, I'm going to run out and buy a few pounds of blue and maize yellow yarn to make a huge blanket for football games. I'm excited!
