Sunburst Flower Granny Squares blanket

Looks like I (re)discovered crocheting. After seeing all these amazing granny square blanket projects e.g. by Sandra Juto and Sarah Goldschadt
I decided to give it a try too.

My goal is to make at least 64 squares using this Sunburst Flower Granny Squares pattern and turn them into a tiny blanket (ca. 80 x 80 cm). I’ve been working on it a lot the first 2 weeks and finished 32 sqaures so far, but I notice how I’ve been slowing down since starting to sew the threads away (is that correct english?).

What crafts are you planning to (re)try this year?
Any big projects planned?
