I've got seventeen different coloured yarns to work with and I want to make it completely random so I'm closing my eyes whilst I plunge my hand in to the bag of yarn to choose a colour. It's quite a challenge as I usually like to be in total control.
So far, I've made fourteen squares. I can't believe how easy they are to do once you get going. Why didn't I learn to crochet years ago? It's really relaxing to do whilst watching television, unlike knitting where I have to count stitches.
The only bit I'm not looking forward to is sewing it all up, though I know there's ways of crocheting the squares together, so I'll look in to that.
Now, where've I left my hook?
What fabulous colours and love your technique with choosing them!ReplyDelete

Yummy colours! It will be gorgeous when all put together! CxReplyDelete
Wow look at you go , they are amazing! I have been making little hearts with crochet, will blog about them soon.ReplyDelete
Me again! Just responding to the comments you gave me on the top tips! Thankfully I have very little ironing as I hang everything after washing which is handy!ReplyDelete
As for Sky+ I'm much the same but sometimes I allow the adverts to run to get things done!!
Your squares look fantastic - they're so neat! - and the colours are gorgeous too! It's definitely relaxing and, as you say, really easy once you get going. The finished blanket will look lovely!ReplyDelete
If you've only just started crocheting and you've managed those, then I am definitely gonna give it a go! Loved your previous posts on the Dales - all favourite places of mine - often wondered what the whole coins in tree trunks thing was about!ReplyDelete
Jo what lovely colours! Crocheting is so relaxing and you can pick it up and take it anywhere - i love it!ReplyDelete
What you are doing here is great fun - always working with a different combination of colours!
Its all looking wonderful!
Thanks for your comments - i wouldnt mind betting there will be a few new crochet books soon?!!
A very useful one is the 200 crochet blocks by jan eaton, and anything by Erika Knight is so inspiring!
Enjoy making your squares!!!!
