I have been working on a gift for about 4 months now.
There was no hurry, so I could do it in my own time.
Purchased the wool as I needed it - which did cause me a few problems when they discontinued one colour and another colour dye-lot's changed. Thank goodness for Ravelry!!! I was able to buy a full ball from another member
But I was able to work around it and modify the blanket.
I have given you one very small glimpse of the colours
Colours were chosen to blend with D1's home decor
But as I worked on it, the colours started to appeal even more to me
It made me feel a balance between sea, sky and earth
So it was named (in my head only)
"Ying & Yang"
But for the full impact
Here we go
A close up of the colours chosen
Squares which I turned into diamonds
On my lounge
Oh, look at that - it matches!!!
Maybe I should have kept it ☺
