Thanks for sharing, great to see the colours all crocheted up. Was wondering though, cheekily, whats the paatern for the bright rainbow squares, is it single crochet? X

These are just beautiful. I don't have a blog, but I do enjoy yours. Thanks for these suggestions.

Love them, thank you so much.

I love your blog, photos and colors.
There is a mistake in Subtle Rainbow, I think: there are nine colors in photo but only eight described above.
Thank you so much for your shared work!

I came across your blog about two years ago and was inspired to pick up my crochet hook again. I have since made numerous items for charity and gifts for family (inc 4 Olafs!!) and a granny square blanket for my grandson's 18 th birthday next month! I am about to have a go at the lily pond CAL, so wish me luck! Thank you so much for sharing your craft.

Thank you for this , your colours are gorgeous. I always struggle trying to match up colours. Trying out the v-stitch blanket at the minute, thanks to you.

Thanks for sharing I find sorting out colour combos the hardest bit of any project

Pauline said...

Just love what you do , would love if you would do more tutorials, just finished the turquoise blanket as a thank you gift for a friend and she lives it , you've encouraged me to crochet again , thank you , but like I said it would be great to have a pattern
