I am very very close to the end of the crochet blanket that I started at the beginning of February, and although I’ve enjoyed making it, I’ve decided to do some smaller projects over the summer, and have seen all sorts of lovely little things to make – pretty flowers, baby bootees (no, I’ve no happy news to share – a friend has just had a baby!), crochet bunting, and an iPad case are just some of the things that have caught my eye.
With that in mind, I decided to treat myself to some new yarn in summery colours, and I picked up some bargains from Wool Warehouse. I haven’t bought wool online before, so I was a little wary about how accurate the colours would be on screen, but overall, I’m pleased.
I’m not the world’s most creative or artistic person, and I’m not brilliantly confident at putting colours together, so Pinterest has been an absolute Godsend. I wanted summery colours, and I think I’ve done pretty well at matching up these colour palettes – what do you reckon?
The second and third from the left in this one are a bit off, but I still think it’s an overall nice colour combo.
Oh, and another thing I shall definitely be crocheting this summer is one of these, for Fred:
