The start of another

Deciding on colours for a blanket for a man is not easy!  I hope you will like my choices as this blanket progresses. It won’t be the same size as the last one and will be crocheted alongside another project or two so that my days are filled with a good mix of colour.

This began with the Mocha and Walnut which were part of the Sunflower blanket. I used as little as possible of these colours in that, so there is a decent amount left. Like the Sunflower blanket, all yarn will be Stylecraft Special DK because that is available in my local shop and I like to support small business. If I need another ball of anything I can walk there within 20 minutes – so it’s a healthy reason for choosing this yarn too 😉

More details about this when I  do a few more rows.

I’ve also been tackling something that is new to me. I have made many 3D flowers. I even made some on TV during a demonstration, but I have never tackled one with a hook. Well, guess what!

I can’t share much more with you yet, but watch this space. Yesterday’s results were interesting. One success and one failure. The latter was my fault – I chose the wrong yarn. In so doing I discovered something rather special, though, so when I’ve finished experimenting I’ll share more with you.

Have a great ‘hooky’ day everyone. It’s cool and grey here, so I’d better keep warm with a blanket 😉

I dye. Colour is my business and I using a variety of materials. I also enjoy enabling other creatives to enjoy their art. Some of my blogs are kept as daily records. Take a look and you will see.
