Norwegian Landscape Afghan

Finished an afghan to coordinate with...

...this beautiful print by Elizabeth Langreiter.
 It's called Little Red Norwegian Houses and I love it!
(Purchased from www.fineartamerica.com and framed by JoAnns)

Pulled out my Stylecraft Special DK yarn colors to match,
which included:
Aster
Robins Egg
Cloud Blue
Storm Blue
Cypress
Sage
Green
Kelly Green
Spice
Fondant
Lipstick
Claret
Turquoise
Sherbet
And lots of white
(the photo includes black but I left that out)
The border was crochet in:
Cloud Blue

Pattern is called "Boho Chic Blanket"
and can be found at Crochet Between Worlds
and by clicking here.

Then crocheted and crocheted and crocheted for a very long time!
(Including many driving hours back and forth to and from Stjernedal.)

 Must be photographed with Norwegian window geraniums. :-)

Must also be photographed with its new friends.

Too much light - but the best photo I had from when it was still a WIP.

 Not a WIP anymore:

Have a happy colorful day!

  6. It looks fabulous on that white lounge chair - the colours match well with the picture too! I love the little daisy afghan - the flowers are not unlike the blocks I'm currently making, but I'm doing the blocks in single colours. I smile everytime I look at my clock with the purple flowers my friend!
