Have been wanting to start a new big crochet project and inspired by Lucy at Attic 24 who has put together a palette of colours on the Wool Warehouse and Deramores websites, I wanted to have a go at putting my own palette together.
The throw is to go on the futon that sits below ‘Summer Flight’.
So, how about using the same palette of colours.
I found the yarn in the Wool Warehouse
Stylecraft Special DK – Bright Pink (1435)
Stylecraft Special DK – Raspberry (1023)
Stylecraft Special DK – Magenta (1084)
Stylecraft Special DK – Fiesta (1257)
Stylecraft Special DK – Soft Peach (1240)
Stylecraft Special DK – Sunshine (1114)
Stylecraft Special DK – Citron (1263)
Stylecraft Special DK – Cream (1005)
Stylecraft Special DK – Turquoise (1068)
Stylecraft Special DK – Aspen (1422)
Stylecraft Special DK – Wisteria (1432)
Stylecraft Special DK – Teal (1062)
Stylecraft Special DK – Midnight (1011)
Stylecraft Special DK – Petrol (1708)
14 colours, and I hope to keep them in the same proportions as the painting, but we’ll see how it goes as I’m making it
Very excited about playing with different combinations of colours within the same palette.
I had such fun arranging them on the sofa – glee! is the word that comes to mind!
I also just had to add a brilliant orange colour
Stylecraft Special DK – Jaffa (1256)
Because I am also wanting to make some things in one of my favourite combos of pink and orange. With maybe a bit of purple and turquoise too – oooooh – I so LOVE that combo
makes me want to dance!!

What are those colored bobbles on top of the painting?

Oh, it’s so wonderful of you to have a look around! Some of the bobbles are little pom-poms and and some little crocheted balls found on Attic 24. here is a link to my post about them: https://daffodilwild.wordpress.com/2012/12/26/frame-2/
which also links you to the Attic24 pattern. I really love my rather bonkers frame! It brings the painting into my home and makes it truly part of it. ❤ xx

Love the colours. I look forward to seeing the finished throw 🙂
It will be even more fun having you along! I’m guessing this project will take a while – I’m still in the design stage, which I will share with you soon. Thanks so much for dropping by!
That’ll be a lovely corner of colour when it’s done 🙂 ❤ ❤
I feel a bit like a colour glutton Jackie – just can’t seem to get enough of those zingy ones – a true child of the 60s and psychedelia! Looking forward to sharing the process with you. ps. Do you have any colour in your garden yet?
Well, maybe not the sort of flowers you’d expect to see, but my last couple of blog posts show pics of the only flowers I’ve seen 😉 ❤ ❤
And here am I getting excited because I have finally managed to complete a 6 inch granny square all by myself! FABULOUS colours…so looking forward to the vicarious pleasure of watching this project unfold and grow to completion xxxx
You are doing brilliantly with your crochet!!!!! I’m really excited about sharing this one, lovely to have you along for the ride!!
Love n hugs xxx
Those colours are so bright and amazing. I can’t wait to see your finished blanket.

Thanks so much for dropping by! I’m so excited about the colours all I want to do is sit and crochet all day long – but the sun is shining and the garden calls – so many wonderful choices – I’ll be posting my blanket progress on the blog – and I’m thinking this will take a very long time – but there is a cosy comfort in that – hope you are enjoying the sunshine too.
