Addicted to ombre

I'm making another ombre blanket. About half way there. Just wanted to document my thought process for how I choose colours. Sometimes the colour scheme takes on a life of it's own. I find it gets very addictive as I can't wait to add the next colour to see what effect it will make.

This blanket is being crocheted with two strands of double knit acrylic yarn with a size eight hook. Each colour combo is crocheted over two rows before dropping and adding a colour.

Made this a few months ago for an old friend and his partner and little girl to snuggle into. I tried to get hints from pictures he had on Facebook if the colour scheme in their home.







This one was finished last week for a friend who has just given birth. I knew it was going to be a boy so choose spring boyish colours.






Ethan couldn't resist a snuggle in it!

Chicken, broccoli, pesto and cheese buns

Made the enriched dough recipe for my bread machine, used 3oz wholewheat flour and 6oz of white. Mixed 300gr shredded chicken, handful of cooked broccoli, 2 tbsp pesto, and handful of grated cheese together.  Rolled out the dough into a rectangle. Spread out the mixture.  Roll up and slightly pull.  Sprinkle some flour around the roll. Cut into 8 pieces and public in a warm place to rise for 20mins. Put in iven and switch on to 200/gm6. Cook for approx 30 mins. Check after 20 mins.

Allow to cool down before ripping apart and devouring heartily.
