Today I received some yarn I ordered as I would like to make a granny square blanket - making a blanket like this poses two problems for me - firstly I get bored very easily and have never yet crocheted anything larger than a cardi.
And secondly, I seem to be quite bad at choosing colours. More often than not I will start crocheting something and decide I hate the colours - I just can't seem to do the lovely random colour thing that I admire so much in crochet.
So, I had a plan - I decided to order yarn in shades of one of my favourite CK prints:
The shop I ordered the yarn from had a shopping basket in which you could see all the shades you had added and they looked pretty good together so I eagerly awaited their arrival:
And in reality they don't look good together at all >:0(
Do you think without the neon pale pink they'd be better? Or should I ditch the blue on the bottom far right too? Vanessa - your crochet always looks fab, what do you think?
This is the granny square I want to do:
But I'd like to either join them with white or have the outer rounds done with white to make the middles pop.
And do I do truly random? Or organised random? Decisions, decisions, not good for a Libra!!
Yesterday we had a visit from Ashley at Country Rose - she doesn't live too far away and having all the same interests we thought it would be nice to meet in person. It was as though we had known each other ages and we had a lovely afternoon with lots of crafty chat and cheesecake (I finished the rest after dinner Ashley, I am officially A. Pig.)
Ashley brought her gorgeous daughter Rose with her and it has done me no good at all, making me incredibly broody - even Mr G confesses to a tiny twinge of broodiness as Rose is so sweet!!
Today I have had my hair done - no pics as I am make-up less and would scare the horses but it's lovely to get rid of the grey stripe I get in the front!!
Mr G is 40 on Saturday and so we are feeling our age but a recent quote I found on the fabulous Pinterest has helped me to put things in perspective:
