    I would really love to know how you are going to join them together because I am trying to make a Polka dot blanket for my Little sister in law and I’ve got all my circles made but I feel completely lost on how to join them all together. Everything I try just ends up looking messy :(

      Hi Tyla, I didn’t really find any good way to connect them all together, and the blanket got left back in Canada in a box with a bunch of other unfinished objects when I moved to Scotland! Sorry to not have any brilliant suggestions. But I will be publishing a KNITTED polka-dot blanket in the next 2 weeks, so watch out for that!

    I really like all the color! Seeing all the circles and colors reminds me of folk art – very cool!

    That’s really cool! I found your blog through the Vancouver Knitting Meetup. I don’t think I’ve ever met you at meetup… do you go often?
