I have been learning crochet over the last few weeks. Well relearning. I could do some but never got into anything clever. I found Lucy at attic24 and loved what she had done and have taught myself how to do ripple blankets and a bag.
Today I got a delivery of some yarn that said it was recommended by Lucy for her granny blanket. It turned out to be acrylic which was a bit of a surprise and not the brand of wool as specified in the pattern I have ended up doing. But hey, never one to be felled at the first hurdle I wrote down the colours required and looked them up on the internet.
OK The colours required are:
eucalyptus, mermaid, sprout, beach glass, periwinkle, twilight, grape, lipstick, geranium, snapdragon, buttercup
and my matching colours are called:
turquoise, cloud blue, spring green, sherbert, lavender, aster, plum, pomegranate, shrimp, fondant and saffron
I'm glad I'm not having to chose the names!

Sprout and spring green are the same colour. It's what you might think of with new spring shoots, very pale green. But I was thinking Brussels :-)ReplyDelete
LOL, Rosie! I'm often amused by the colour names when buying knitting yarn, but sprout is a new one for me. :-)ReplyDelete
I love doing crochet but I hate knitting. You can make some beautiful clothes with a crochet hook :-) DianeReplyDelete
