The CAL from this post continues...
The granny row of the "Granny Rose CAL"
from this step of the CAL has been added.
The join and trim will be on the next step since
this will be a blanket and the original CAL was designed for a pillow.
In the midst of the project I ran across this post at Sewing Daisies, which led me in a different direction. Originally all the granny rows were to be white, but with the inspiration from Sewing Daisies the granny row colors received three different background colors including the aqua.
Then came the red inspiration from Sewing Daisies as well:
So I added an extra single crochet of red for a little zing.
This row was not part of the original CAL and pattern;
however, I must bring as much red in as I possibly can!
Red makes me happy!
Note the three different background colors:
Aqua, pastel violet and white.
What do you think of the subtle differences?
It's an effort to coordinate with the guest room where this blanket will reside:
The baseboards and closet doors are aqua, the inside of the bedspread is pastel violet
and there's a lot of white in the room.
This is a "Before" photo.
"After" will be posted upon afghan finish.
Additionally, orange and yellow bins are in transit and I am on the search for something
to put on top of the IKEA shelving unit "Expedit."
This is so fun!
I hope you are having fun too!
