Experimenting with Motif No. 5

Untitled

Great crafty minds think alike right? I was getting ready to post a picture of this experimentation with my Abstract Flower Motif No. 5, when Wee little Owl mentioned in the comments that she wanted to make it into a throw! (Kind of like when I realized I was making my Geometric Baby Blanket at the same time as Ale was making her Hexagons Shabby Chic Blanket!)

Anyways, this motif is probably my favorite out of them all, so I thought I'd try to make a blanket out of it, using up a tote of scrap acrylic yarn (in fantastic colors!) that my Gram gave me. I'm using a size J (6mm) hook, and connecting the motifs by 3 picots on each side. I came up with a little connecting motif to put in between the circles. Here's my question: Does is look like this motif is translating into a blanket? I keep going back and forth with "yeah, it's working!" and "eh, maybe the shapes are getting too distorted." And then I realize I've been looking at it too long! So then I pick it up and feel it, and think "yeah, it's working!" and then think "eh, it feels funny." And then I realize I've been holding it too long. SOOOOO.... I need to step away and ask, do you think I should keep going with it? Thanks for your input!!
