When I saw this spiral counterpane blanket on the knityousucka blog
( http://knityousucka.blogspot.com/2006/03/knitted-spiral-counterpane-blanket.html),
I knew that I had to try it. With no pattern in hand, I began to scour the internet and found this site that gave me the pattern for the spiral octogons:
( http://knittingdivine.blogspot.com/2007/07/lacy-beret-free-pattern.html ).

From there I looked closely at the pics on knityousucka and figured out the filler squares and triangles. Now just need to knit 35 spirals, 24 squares and 20 triangles, sew it all together and knit a border (I haven't learned how to crochet)...

I'm working on the second spiral now.

You are a better man then I - if it involves piecing, it goes to the bottom of my list. (with the exception of stuffed animals)

You are too, too kind.

You are too, too kind. After putting piecing 221 small squares woven on a Weave-It loom, I hope I can handle it. That project took forever!!
