As you may have gathered by now, I am a huge fan of Lucy at Attic24.
Yesterday, I uploaded a pic of my current WIP blanket to Instagram.
This is a combination of Lucy’s Sunny colours and Raindrops stitch which I have changed to treble crochet (UK terms) rather than half treble crochet.
OMG – Lucy commented! Now you may think I am being daft but as an avid follower of Lucy’s blog I am over the moon she took the time to comment on my work.
I have not been successful putting colour combinations together myself, so I unashamedly admit all my blankets to date, apart from my african flower blanket, have been an Attic24 blanket. I explained in a previous post what happened when I added extra colours to my Cottage Ripple blanket…..
Anyway, I have decided it’s time to be brave. I want to put my own individuality into my work. I promised a friend I will make her a blanket this year – her favourite colours are purple and lime green!
So, I took the plunge and have come up with the following colour combination which I have called ‘Passion Flower’ – what do you think ?
I can’t take the credit for naming the colour combo though (one thing at a time!) I posted the colour combo to my Facebook page asking for name ideas. A friend suggested ‘Passion Flower’ and my Mum sent me the pic of a Passion Flower in her garden – job done!
Since my last post, I have finished my Sunny Log Cabin blanket.
As ‘it’s the law’ on crochet blogs, here is the mandatory ‘pile of blankets’ photo…
It took a few attempts to take the photo as Mr B wanted to get in on the action……
Progress on my ‘Sunny Raindrops’ blanket is coming along nicely.
Miss M gave me no choice really – it would be such a shame to disturb her…….
Happy hooking !

Just found your blog and I loving all your blankets. and would like to know what colours are your using in your sunny raindrops blanket.
Hi Anne, Thank you for your kind comments. The colours are Lucy at Attic24 Sunny Blanket colours. There is a link in my post. 🙂
Wow, what a lot of beautiful colourful crochet! I love the Passion flower colours, can’t wait to see them as a blanket 😀
I’m shocked to realise I haven’t done the mandatory pile of blankets picture on my blog. I need to sort this out. I love the Passion flower colour scheme! Interested to see what you do with them.
So beautiful, I love the passion flower color combination!
Thank you 😊
