You’ve probably noticed by now how much I enjoy colour. Now I’m learning to play with it myself as well as enjoy other people’s games. Learning by doing.
I’ve been using odds and ends of yarn left over from other projects to make some simple squares to join for a multi-colour blanket of my own invention. (I did need to buy a few extra balls, as there weren’t quite enough left overs for the blanket).
Then I decided that instead of mixing all the colours I would split them into two groups. As you can see below.
And now I’ve sewn in all the ends on the red/pink group its ready for me to piece into a blanket.
I’m thinking about how best to join them – with a dark colour? or a pale colour? Maybe I’ll do a bit more playing around before I decide. I’m drawn to either white (or a creamy colour), or something really dark (navy? black?). This could go either way.
I think this one may be a present for someone (I’ll have to check first with her parents whether these colours work for her, but they’re the colours I always associate with her, and they go with her name). If not, it will be my ‘garden blanket’. The other one (greens, blues) is for our spare bedroom, which gets used quite a lot these days.
And then I have the twine I bought in a sale last year to make a basket or two, building on the 3-d crochet I practiced with Emma on the workshop back in October.
Meanwhile I’m still enjoying other people’s colour play. (All photos below courtesy of Malcolm).
