Yeah I’m still around, lol, but I’ve been very quiet haven’t I?! I’ve not really been up to much lately craft wise, apart from catching up on a couple of knitting projects, but I’ve now started another crocheted double bed blanket. This is going to take a while…
The blanket is a crocheted Granny Stripe blanket, inspired by reading this fantastic blog – Attic24 Wow, the author has some fantastic photo’s on there, and it’s all about colour. I love this blog!! Be sure to check out the blog too, because I’m sure it will inspire you too.
The colours are a little bit stronger than the picture suggests. The “blue” in between the pale pink and yellow/orange is actually a dark lilac!
I started off with a chain of 252.
I shall also add some more colours on Friday… I need some darker one’s I think. EDIT: see further down, lol.
Below are some newer photo’s of Elijah when we had him over for the evening while Darryl and Abby went to the cinema. He’s always such a good boy! He’s one year old on September 25th, that year went past in a blur!
Ok, so I’m not well known for my patience… as soon as I posted the blog update I went into town and bought these fabby jewel colours!! I’m hoping the red is going to show properly, as it’s a gorgeous rich raspberry colour.
