Golden Crochet Time
But this time I thought I'd be a bit more ambitious and follow a proper, complicated, lacy pattern.
It was my birthday a few motnhs back and I decided to treat myself to some of this exquisite Sublime Tussah Silk yarn from my very own shop :)
You can't really see how lovely it is in these photos, it is gold and silky soft mixed with slightly crinkly shimmeriness (made that word up).
I wanted something suitably retro with garish rainbow colours like the blanket featured here which was crocheted for me by an elderly relative when I was a teenager (and which I now cherish).
So this is going to be my Budget Granny Blanket!
