It has taken me ages to write this post, partly because the days have been dark and dingy and so no good for indoor photography but mostly because my bedroom was a complete pig sty and I was too ashamed to take photos in there before I'd tidied up a bit. Now however I have shifted the pile of washing that was beside the bed, gathered up the errant lego bricks and hoovered up the biscuit crumbs that Toby leaves everywhere in his wake and for a short while I have a neat and tidy room.
The 2nd misty blanket has turned out well and I'm enjoying snuggling under it at night. I ended up making 11 x 11 squares so a total of 121 which is a good fit for a king-size bed. I've used more structure in the placement of the colours than I did with the first misty blanket that I made - alternate rows of pink and orange centres interspersed with aqua, green and teal. Each square has 4 rounds of mixed neutral grey, cream and beige tones and is topped off with one round of charcoal grey. Then the whole thing was ringed with 5 rounds of charcoal and finally 3 alternate single crochet rows of silver, cream and silver. It's big, pleasing to my eye and definitely cosy.
Having the blanket on the bed however has made me realise how much I want to change the paint colour in our room. H finished painting in there a few weeks before Amy was born so we've had this deep blue for nearly 16 years now and I'm tired of it. I'm feeling that a lovely soft, dove grey colour would be calm and perfect, anyone have any paint suggestions?
Happy weekend all, it looks like being a warm one here so I may have to go and take my blanket off again!
