Crochet blanket colours

The plan was to make a blanket inspired by one I had when I was younger. The reality is that I’ve seen lots of pretty blankets on Pinterest and I’m currently in love with daisy flower blankets.

Especially this purple one:

and the blue ones here:

Which I found at

and then these lovely multi coloured ones:

So naturally, I bought some colours, which feature in all of these, but don’t put them together in quite the same way…

So…I feel that if I keep going like this I will end up with one very green blanket. I’m not sure quite how much I like green in soft furnishings. I’ll make a few more and see how I feel about it. I love how quick granny squares are to make, so it’s not the end of the world if I make a oodles of them in different colour combinations to get the perfect result!


12 months 12 projects: Update

I’ve finally had a moment of clarity and realised that I can’t get all of my 12 projects complete by August, because it’s just not realistic for me. So I’ve had a good think, and have come up with this list of things which seems perfectly do-able to me:

1. Make my own Quillow

Here’s my post about the Quillow of joy.

2. Knit a cushion cover

3. Knit a hat based on a TV character

COMPLETE FEB 2015 – Tyrese’s hat. It kinda honours his memory now though, sob.

4. Crochet baby booties

5. Sew some PJ’s

6. Crochet a blanket out of Granny squares 

7. Knit a dinosaur

8. Sew a pencil skirt

9. Sew a Dress

10. Knit a  jumper

11. Make a mini quilt featuring ‘flying geese’

12.Make something cosy with hexagons

So there we have it, a new list.
