About six weeks ago I spotted some cotton yarn over at the Wool Warehouse; Drops Paris. I had seen this yarn and purchased it before Lucy spoke about it on her blog. I picked 6 colours with the intention of making a blanket for The Girl for her bedroom. The Girl has already decided on this colour scheme of her new bedroom when we finally sell our house in the Midlands and move somewhere permanent here in Wales.
Really do love this palette and it is so much more grown up then previous bedroom styles which is what you need when your age is double figures.
I think for the first time ever I have sat down and planned this blanket myself; chose the yarn, colours and pattern. No following anyone else's example. However, if it wasn't for a number of inspirational crocheters out there on the web I would never have had the courage to do this alone.
These are the colours of yarn I am using:
06 Shocking Pink 13 Orange 24 Dark Grey
35 Vanilla 23 Light Grey 33 Medium Pink
I am making granny squares, all different colours and sizes. I sat down with crayons and graph paper and put the plan together. So far I have managed to crochet one square. It is a 6 round vanilla and I'm loving it. This yarn is lovely to use and the fact you use a 5mm hook means it works up so quickly.
Will be back soon to show you my progress.
