Back on Etsy! Custom Ombre Blanket

I've finally got round to doing something I have been meaning to do for ages!

List my Ombre Crocheted Granny Square Blanket on Etsy...

Over the years I have loved making these for friends, sometimes for their babies, or their wedding present or special birthday celebrations.

I make them using three strands of wool at a time, adding a colour and dropping a colour as I need to to get the ombre effect I love.

I am now taking orders via {Etsy

Rainbow Ombre

I'm a bit of a sucker for rainbows, and crocheting - here are the two combined!

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!

Book lushness

Got this gorgeous book in the post from my sister today. I love amazon wish lists... it means I get something I like for birthdays. Btw my bday was last month - before you start singing!
