Apparently, I am making a blanket. Can you help with colors?
So, back in the significantly-more-carefree month of June, I thought, "I need a crochet project." I had this cone of stranded yarn that I'd picked up from Yarnia on clearance, and I thought I'd fulfill a longtime dream of mine – to make a scarf from small granny squares.
…But then I got curious to see just how many little squares I could get out of this cone. Well, it's clear at this point that I'll have enough to make a great big blanket.
And that's where I could use some help from you fiber-lovers. See the yarn? It's mostly purple, but that one strand of bright red is really prominent. Not only that, the variegation makes the squares pretty visually complex. I think I need another solid color or two to border these little grannies and give the blanket more harmony.
These red grannies are about 3" square (or they will be once they're blocked). What colors would you use between them? I'm leaning toward neutrals, but yarn-color-selection is not my forte. I'd love some suggestions!
(Oh, and while I'm here, I should let you know that my video blog and Google Analytics tutorials have had to go on hiatus until after Labor Day. Sorry, friends - I am up to my eyeballs in work deadlines for a while. The Crafty Goodness will return, don't worry!)
