Spice of Life - Crochet Along

Hi there!
I've not taken part in a Crochet Along before (CAL for short)  but this one has really taken my fancy!
A friend introduced me to the Facebook group last week.  It is being organised by Black Sheep Wools in collaboration with Sandra from the Cherry Heart blog.

Here are the colours I have choosen (they were selected for a different project, however decided I wanted to do this instead!)

This is it so far.

It's not too late to join in if you would like to...

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!
