Look at my gorgeous new stash of wool! It's for my new project - a Granny Stripe blanket as designed by the lovely Lucy at Attic 24 (pattern found here). The wool is Style Craft Special DK found here - a snip at £1.35 per 100g ball.
The colours I have chosen are violet, bright green, raspberry, pale rose, pomegranate, fondant, lipstick, green, turquoise, sherbet, bluebell, lavender, lemon, saffron, jaffa, apricot, meadow, aster, spring green, aspen and cloud blue.
I may add a couple more colours - I think I need a couple of deeper colours like a grape and maybe a darker red.
The tray below shows my recent crochet work - lots and lots of flowers. These are going to be brooches and they just need finishing off now. I was assessing my range of colours and I obviously favour pink, red and purple. Think I need to add a few more colours - what do you think?. I am hoping to sell these flower brooches at my school's Christmas Fair.
The other crochet project I am working on is hair clips. These are mainly finished - just the blue, pink and green ones at the bottom to finish. I am using up my Rowan Cash Soft on these as they don't take much wool at all.
