Crochet Colour Craze


Thankyou for your kind comments about my new paintings. :) I had quite a busy week last week so any new ideas for paintings that I had since then, were put on hold but hopefully this week, I should have more time.
Meanwhile, let me show you my latest crochet project.
Now if you have visited here before and are aware of my craze for bright colour, take a look in my bag of wool in the picture above. Do you see anything odd?

No?

Well it might not seem unusual for you but I bought some grey wool. Grey!


I think I must be influenced for the apparent fashion for grey everywhere at the moment, in paint, wallpaper, fabrics, carpets but my thinking is that it would set the other colours off nicely and make them seem even more bright! You can see I haven't altered the photo because the grey looks like grey and the yellow ZINGS out of the picture.


I find crocheting in the evenings very relaxing and as you may already know, I've made quite a few of these colourful blankets lately. I love to choose which colour I'm going to use for each stripe. I thought I'd run out of people to make these for but the other day my daughter-in-law-to-be happened to mention that she loves them so here we are. I've started making this one for her. ;)

I've updated the 'meet the owner' page in my Etsy shop and if you'd like to see it, please click here. :)

Bye for now, have a good week! xx

I wish i liked knitting. It took me two years to knit a VERY short scarf! :) It just hurts my hands and drives me batty, but I sure appreciate the talent and work it takes!
