Last year I purchased some yarn to crochet The Girl a blanket for her bedroom. When we (finally) get a 'proper' house here both The Boy and Girl are wanting a change of colour from the old rooms. The Girl's was naturally pink with a little lilac thrown in and The Boy was blue. After much searching online for a colour palette for The Boy we took inspiration from Pigtails lovely crochet blanket.
Off White (17) Light Turquoise (02)
Opal Green (11) Petrol (48)
Light Grey (23) Light Ice Blue (29)
Both of us were really happy with these colours but I had also promised a handmade quilt. Searching over the past few months we have settled on these woodland fabrics:
Problem was the colours we have chosen for the crochet blanket are not quite right. I went back to the colour chart for this range of yarn and dropped the opal green and light blue replacing them with a pistachio green and dark turquoise.
All I need to do now is save up some pennies but I'm hoping that I'll have some of the light grey left from The Girl's blanket so am holding off on getting the yarn until I finish her blanket. Oh and it's not like I need any more WIPs!
