In the spirit of the 'Johanna' Blanket we'll call this the 'Julie'.
It's crocheted from Rowan Cotton in Slick, Pacific, Raspberry, Atlantic and Seafoam.
I am thinking hard at the moment about my future craft room in the new house. It won't be long until we move now, just a couple of months. There will be white walls and white surfaces for taking pictures of my crochet and we've chosen a window that has no panes so I get maximum amounts of light. There is nowhere to photography things properly in the house that we rent at the moment. I really can't wait to move all the rubbish (sorry, that should read AMAZING CRAFT SUPPLIES) from my bedroom into another room. I have lots of exciting ideas and I reckon having more space to pursue them may make me a little bit more productive!
But I also need to work on my *ahem* 'styling.'
All the same, I am really pleased with the way I picked out the colours, photographing in the house was making the pink (shade: slick, now sadly discontinued I think) too bright and indistinct, like the colour was bleeding into the others.
This was an entirely bespoke blanket, the recipient chose all the colours and I think they make a wonderfully retro, unique blanket for a little girl. A refreshing change - I loved crocheting it and that pink POPS. It's great.
In the end I opted for a simple border, I tried out a couple of fancy ones from the crochet corner book but in the end I didn't like the way they were turning out. Simple is usually best.
I hope they like it!
