My latest inspiration obsession is the brilliant blog, Color Collective by Lauren Willhite. I’ve been printing out the images for color inspiration and I take a binder full of them whenever I go to craft stores, yarn stores, etc to play with color combinations. So much fun! My latest Color Collective inspired project is a crocheted blanket that I’ve asked my grandmother to make for a future grandchild. My yarn combination was inspired by three Color Collective images:
The afghan is going to be a zigzag - each row a different color. I'll post pics of Grammie's progress. I think the colors would work for either a girl or boy. And I might just have to buy that Hollie Chastain print to hang in the future kid's room! (fyi - I'm not married and do not have any thoughts of having babies anytime soon.)
The yarn is Cotton Ease in stone, taupe, charcoal, terracota, berry, maize and seaspray.
And here's my inspiration binder. The poem on the front is The Riddle of the World by Alexander Pope.
