My pink flowery blanket has sold!
(dancing a little happy dance)
I do hope it's gone to a good home!

So now onto my next crochet projects.
I have two on the go - one that is red and blue and cream - and all stars.
This one I'm hoping to get it to a single bed size.
I will post photos another day.
As today I want to show you the other one I've been working on.
Do you ever get stuck choosing colours?
#There are times when I just stare at my wall of wool and just can't decide what to put with what.
The other week I was in such a quandary.
I'd got several balls out and put them together but nothing was speaking to me.
Then I spied my Seasalt bag hanging on the back of my chair.
And inspiration struck! Why not try those colours together?
The yarns I had didn't match exactly but I was extremely happy with the colours I had together.
So I had navy, mauve, turquoise and a green, which I thought I'd surround with a parchment shade from Stylecraft Special DK range.
I decided to use the Sunburst pattern.
This is a lovely pattern I've found on www.ravelry.com and I love!
The link is here http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/sunburst-granny-squares.
So here are my sunbursts ready to be squared off and bordered by the parchment shade.
And here is the blanket as work in progress ....
I am loving it!
The shades are definitely now speaking to me,
and I think they look superb surrounded by the parchment shade.
One slight problem - I ran out of the parchment last night
- so have had to make an order for some more (sshh don't tell Jonathan!)
What do you think? And do you have the same problem with choosing your colours sometimes?
