The antidote to worrying about colour choice? Start a project with random scraps of yarn. It can’t go wrong!
Fourteen squares completed, I think I’ll need about 40 or so to make this blanket. And, like usual, I’m having what I call craft anxiety. I’ve mentioned it before and it happens at some point during most major projects, whether its crochet or painting or an extravagant six-layer rainbow cake. The I did love it, but now I’m not sure I like it at all thoughts usually pass and I keep working on the project. Sometimes though, I deliberate for a while before continuing and sometimes I don’t finish the project. When I do keep going I always end up happy with the result. Fingers crossed that happens with this granny square blanket.
This morning while waiting for the train to take me in to the city for some retail therapy I met two lovely ladies who crochet. The first was Erika, who crochets cushion covers from vintage yarn. You can purchase them from Vampt Vintage Design here in Sydney.
I didn’t get the second lady’s name but I hope she’s found this blog and the link to the ripple pattern she was interested in.
What a lovely start to the weekend! (The three new dresses I picked up didn’t hurt either!)
