without realising it, the colours I am currently using
to make a blanket are a bit autumnal, don't you think?
Not my usual choice but I really like them anyway;
it's the combination of them all that does it for me.
And look, I am already choosing a colour scheme for a next
blanket! I really want to crochet a 'log cabin blanket', but I find it difficult to choose
the right shades that work together in one block and in the blanket as a whole....
I tried Lucy's pattern last year, which is stunning and beautiful,
but I wanted to use different colours and there I went wrong.
She cleverly uses 18 (!) colours of yarn in one block!
So, this winter I am trying a much simpler pattern that only uses seven colours,
and hopefully that will work out.
This is the first range I came up with.
Really like it, but they are my safe and usual colours to go for...
Not so bad maybe but I have to try and see if other combinations will work for me also,
you know, getting out of one's comfort zone and such :-).
That Lucy is a great example for me you can see here too,
I am using her peg method for choosing yarn colours because it works really well!
The second one is not spectacularly different,
but might be very nice too, a bit less bright...
I want to use the blanket as a cover for our bed so I have to
take that in consideration too.
I'll have to sleep on it I think (sorry for the pun ;-)).
Talking about colours: the garden is still doing it's best to deliver too!
Look at those delightful sweetpeas, really the last ones of this year and
smelling like a delicious summer's day.
Wishing you all a colourful and lovely weekend lovelies!
