I finally finished the crochet wedding blanket! I am actually really pleased with how it turned out, I think it just looks so bright and sunny!
I was heading to a friends birthday tea and knew the bride and groom would be there after their honeymoon so I decided to bring it along with me, as well as a sunflower and homemade red velvet cake for the birthday girl.
All gifts were greatly appreciated and a lovely day was had by all. What better way to spend a Sunday than with great friends and lovely food!
I’ve started work on another crochet wedding blanket for a wedding in June and I am beginning to panic about it so I need some honest opinions! I am worrying that the colours I have chosen are going to be too garish. I’ve picked bring sunny colours for a couple of reasons, the bride and groom are bright, sunny people so I thought it would be nice to try and incorporate their personalities in the blanket. I also selcted the red and yellow for luck and fortune (in Chinese culture, they are traditional wedding colours) and the orange to incorporate the groom’s favourite football team. Looking at all the balls of wool together I thought they were a lovely warm, bright combination;
However, as I started to crochet I began to worry that they were looking a bit garish and mad, what do you think?
I’ve just powered on for the moment and the blanket is getting bigger, I’ve mixed up the squares so some are plain, like the orange above and some are mixed. All squares have a pale yellow border which I was hoping would bring the design together a bit. I was wondering if a plain one colour border around the whole blanket would maybe tie it all together? I need some help here!
