I have seen quite a few mandalas popping up around Blogland lately and was inspired, obviously, to put my color block blanket aside for a short while and make a mandala of my own. It has been a while since I have made any mandalas (more accurately put, since I became obsessed with making them and ended up with quite the stack) so I was happy to go back to making these beautiful, colorful circles.
I found a beautiful pattern here and set to work using cotton yarn from my stash.
cozy stripe blanket and made a mandala with it; it may just be impossible to stop at one when making mandalas, they are completely addictive.
This is the first mandala that I have made with acrylic yarn (all my others have been made with cotton) which was a nice change.
And I'm not done yet. This gorgeous mandala is next on my list.
