Sophie's Universe Crochet Along and a Geisha WIP

I was perusing The Crochet Crowd's Facebook page a few days ago and I noticed that I keep seeing this really beautiful blanket being shared.  Everyone who's made it says that it was a fun, challenging project and every one of the color combinations that I've seen has been absolutely gorgeous.  So I decided to go hunting for the pattern and I came across the blog "Look At What I Made."

This blog is doing a crochet along of a pattern called "Sophie's Universe."  So I decided to try my hand at it.  I am only on the fifth week's pattern (the crochet along has been over for a week or two), but I am absolutely in love with my blanket so far.  So much so that I went to Hobby Lobby and bought yarn to make a second one with different colors.  This is what I have so far:

Page one's finish:

Page one was really week one's "clue" for the crochet along.  You can't tell from the picture, but the flower is kind of 3d.  I'm really loving the color choices.  

Page two's finish:

Looking more like a mandala at this point!

Page three's finish:

I almost stopped after page three because it was the exact size of my nightstand and I thought that it would look really nice on it.  But then I got antsy and decided that I need to make this a blanket.

Page four's finish:

I'm currently in the middle of page five and right now the row I'm on is tedious.  But it's okay because the row looks like tulips.  I have done so many stitches that I've never done before and I am absolutely in love with my color choices.  My next blanket (same pattern) is neutral colors and a bit more earthy looking.  I can't wait to make that one, too.

OH, BUT WAIT!  I have a Geisha WIP:

Once I'm done with the blue green I'll finally be...about halfway done -_-  This project is just so big.  I never realized how much work I was going to be putting into this one!  I'm planning on working on her tonight and hopefully finishing that last bit of her kimono.  Minus the back stitching of course.  

Mmkay, I suppose I'm going to go work on my blanket some more.  Happy stitching, everyone!
