FO and Creative Friday....{02-03-12} Colour feast


Happy Friday *Grins*

What do you have planned for this weekend?  My house will be a full one, and on Sunday we will be visiting our favourite place called Fishers Farm with 7 children *yikes* Can’t Waite :D
My FOs  this week, is my first {of many} completed crochet Granny square, which the progress can be followed on the Tuesdays “ One a day” from next week, not sure how many squares I will end up with, as I am just going to keep going until all the yarn is gone, I brought two balls in each colour, so I am guessing quite a few :D
What do you think of the colours? When I started last night, I wasn’t too keen on the shade of green I had chosen, but it is growing on me now.
I couldn’t get to unravel this year, so I dyed myself some yarn this week, and I cannot Waite to finish my Pogona so I can cast on something else.
The first two yarns are what I call my artist pallet and the third is another Rainbow, which I just LOVE and I hoping to make my first pair of socks with this one {squeeee}
Talking of Rainbows, My Rainbow yarn Give away ends this Sunday! so you still have time to sign up if you Havant yet.
Have a lovely weekend everyone!

  4. First, I love that granny square. I don't know why but I've always loved them yet never owned a blanket with them in it.

    Second, that yarn is delicious! I love all of the colors. Your dyeing is beautiful.

  5. The granny is pretty and I like the green in it - it's muted enough to blend nicely. Love your dyed yarn - such pretty colors!

  6. I like your GrannySquare, a lot. You've got good contrast between the brights and the muted colors and your stitches look very nice. Every time I see one of these I think of my dearly departed Grama. Thanks for the memory. I love your dyed yarn and I'll be looking forward to seeing what you knit with it.

  7. Love the granny, so many pretty colors, but having just finished assembling one, shudder thinking about all those ends you're going to have to work with. Grannies are always pretty though, so hope you hang in there. Love the yarn! Got my toes and fingers crossed.

  12. The green works with the other colours from what I can see. Are you making a blanket? Love the artists palette shades - rainbows are a bit overbright for me before my second cup of coffee :)

  19. Ooo - I am coveting your rainbow yarn. It is spectacular. I just came across your blog through Natural suburbia. So glad I found another stash addict. How did you get so many gorgeous colors in one yarn - what kind of dye did you use - I see the Kool-Aid - was that it? Amazing!!!

  21. The granny square is cute. I think that shade of green works with it. I'm a knitter but want to learn how to crochet so I can make squares of my own.

  22. Very lovely yarns, and I think the granny square is fun! I'm making a big handspun scrappy granny square using all my leftover skeins of handspun from other projects; it's a lot of fun!
