Ditto my earlier remark, Sandra on such magnificent cheery blanket. I am intrigued as to how you made it - knitted? How many stitches did you cast on at the start and how long did it take you to complete? I am sure many of us would love to know.

I'm so glad you like my Superman blankets.
These are knitted, I can crochet at a very basic level, but prefer to knit
I look for a graph on-line for for what I intend to make, when I find one I like I have learnt to transfer it to IBooks, for the future as sometimes I cannot find it again.
Then I calculate how to make the pattern the size I want: ie with Superman I multiplied the squres by 4 for the number of stitches and by 8 for the number of rows.
I then write out the pattern, so it makes some sort of sense to me. But when I am knitting the first row of the 8 I tend to check back on the graph to make sure I have it correct.
i knit using 2 circular needles as if they are normal needles.
the amount of stitches I use is usually 180 - 190 stitches if I am including the Borders, or 150. - 160 stitches if I am adding the borders on later.
i didn't really intend to knit 4 Superman blankets, but as the pattern worked well and was pretty easy and I had the time, I knitted a second, then a third etc. Usually a blanket takes about 3 weeks.
i hope this all makes some sort of sense.

Hot off the knitting needles last night, my final Superman Blanket.
This is my 40th blanket and I now have 10 ready to bundle up and send off in the next few days.
Last, but by no means least.....Sandra's fourth AMAZING Superman blanket!!
I just want to say that you are a machine, Sandra!! I truly cannot begin to imagine the hours of mental and physical work needed to create these four beauties. The concentration, row counting, stitch counting required, would have done my head in. :))
I cannot wait to see them in a distribution and the smiles from ear to ear on the little ones lucky enough to receive one. Personally, I think my fave is #1 blanket. The extra detail in the border.....you went the extra, extra mile, Sandra. :))
Sandra, I am lost for words, your Superman blankets are absolutely incredible! The recipients are going to be so delighted :))
Oh, I can´t believe to my eyes! What technique did you use? Is it knitted or crocheted? It must last ages to make such a difficult chart. I admire your work, Sandra.
Sandra I must say huge CONGRATULATIONS with the completion of these 4 superb blankets - you've outdone yourself - (and being honest I didn't think that was possible) Incredible!!!!!!!
40th blanket !!! What an achievement! You deserve a rest after all that stupendous work.
I can't wait to see the faces of those four little Supermen when they receive their blankets, Sandra. Amazing work!
Wow Sandra after recently receiving your previous collection of blankets which we are still showing to almost everyone who comes to the barn, I’m also lost for words and 40 stunning blankets…thank you, thank you, thank you.
