Today marks the first day of the school holidays here, so we have 2 weeks with the boys at home, with Easter in the middle, should be a nice break. We don't have much planned, as usual we are a bit tight on funds at the moment (getting paid monthly, the second fortnight is always a bit of a long stretch), so will probably dag around here at home a fair bit. The boys are fine with that, and I am sure we will catch up with friends and family as well.
Being at home so much means I can have some big crafty ambitions for this fortnight, which is great!
I have even cracked out the coloured pencils and done a bit of planning and playing around with colour schemes.
I like these greens together..........
.......and these are as close as I could find in my pencils for a colour scheme that I think will be very pretty, the wool colours look great together......now to work out stripe placements....
............or maybe I'll go for a rainbow of colours, a bit of a carnival, circus feel.
It is so much fun playing with colour, I love working out pleasing (to me) combos, and I think it will speed up my crochet, as I do spend a fair bit of time trying to decide what colour to use next in my current random approach to colour work.
Anyway, here's the start of my new blanket, I like the pattern, nice and solid and cosy, (I am not really into gappy patterns) and it is easy to do. I am going to use the one pattern for the whole of this blanket, I like the stripes definition. And I have several colour combinations I'd like to make, so these are going to be cot size blankies, it will be interesting to see how much I can get done on the holidays.
I still have the other sock to make yet too! Must keep that in mind before I am of on another tangent!
Have a great day!
