Seasalt Inspired

I have finished the Seasalt inspired blanket and it is now in The Crafty Phoenix Lady unit at The Emporium in Yeovil.

Do you remember how I was dithering over colour choices and combinations?  And then suddenly hit on the idea of using my Seasalt bag colours as inspiration ...

I did a simple granny square style border in alternating colours with the parchment background.  Unfortunately didn't have enough mauve to use that in the border but I do think the other three look good, and a border always finishes it off well, doesn't it?

When I measured it I realised I'd made this one square!  I hadn't planned to, but isn't it funny how your work turns out sometimes!

I took it into The Crafty Phoenix Lady unit yesterday and it's looks pretty good - albeit I say that myself!

I've loved working with this colour combination too - it's been refreshing to use colours that perhaps I wouldn't usually chose.  I do feel that the more I work with yarn and fabric - the more I enjoy experimenting with different palettes.  It's nice to have a play around!
