Day Seven

As I was a little premature with my Splash of Colour post last week I thought I would do another and show the progress on my granny stripe blanket which is pretty colourful.

When I started it in the summer I thought it might be completed in time for Jacob's birthday in October.

Now I'm wondering if it will be ready to give him for Christmas.

Because the problem is knowing when to stop , although at the moment my plan is to make it square. However that is still several stripes away!

More colour is obviously required.

  3. I love how in these types of projects all the colours just eventually go together, even if the combinations are not traditional or expected. It's beautiful.

  12. I always find that working freely with color, whether in painting or knit or crochet, always lifts my spirits. It's as if my inner eye gets encouraged by playing with expected and unexpected combination and starts to dance around.

    Hmmm, can an inner eye dance? Well, perhaps you know what I mean.
