I've been wandering round the house, looking into the garden, picking up random magazines, leafing through my crochet books; all in search of a 'me' colour scheme for my next crochet blanket. Then right under my nose - this little pile of knitting WIPs I sorted out the other day and put into a basket could be just the answer! Red, off white and blue, with a few natural tones too.
Now all I need to do is dig deeper in my stash cupboard and find these colours in useful quantities and decide upon a style - ripple, stripes, granny squares, flowers in a square, hexagons... decisions decisions!
Don't you just love the way crochet brings out the designer in you? As a knitter I used to follow patterns religiously but I like the way crochet challenges my colour and layout sense and allows me to create something that is me, even if it is a bit trial and error!
