Oh such fun!

And colour! Lots of colour.

I’ve never really been any good at matching colours up, or at least i didn’t think I was. I can always pick out a good tie for my dad. A silly thing but I always knew which ones he’d like. He doesn’t wear ties anymore really so that skill has been laid dormont until now!

The other day there was a blog post here.. http://inthesky1.blogspot.com/ called delusions of grandeur, I read it and offered up my services as a tester and later that day received an email with the details needed.

Now the only patterns I’ve ever really followed are attic24 patterns, that as I’m sure you know are written out normally with pictures so you can see exactly what you’re meant to be doing. I think over the last 2 years I’ve made 5 of her neat ripple blankets (maybe 7 I’m not sure!) 5 of her birdie decorations, one granny stripe, in attic24 I trust! So for me Lucy ‘in the sky’ was/is putting alot of faith in me trying out her pattern!

So I rushed off and found my ‘upstairs stash’ which is where I store most of my acrylic yarns (not photographed in the previous entry with yarn pics) and sat and worked out colours. I realised I’ve never really sat and done that before, properly planned out colours, and that I don’t really have ‘me’ colours. Like any attic24 reader knows her kind of colours or crochet with Raymond I haven’t found mine, it’ll come with time but yesterday I realised that I can pick colours that work. I won’t put pictures up yet, mostly because as I’m testing the pattern it’d betotally bad form to do so, and because I’m not finished yet! Getting there though, just hope my noobishness doesnt put Lucy off ofselecting pattern testers in future.

Anyways, go over there and follow her blog! http://inthesky1.blogspot.com/
