Ahhhhhh what a lovely colour fix! Just what I needed to brighten the grey day! xxxxxxxxxxxx

i wish i was a giant anteater

oooh i refreshed the page by mistake and got this lovely treat :) beautiful1


Stunning colours. So far as which shade isn't right, my guess would be the pale green, bottom left hand corner of your picture.
Look forward to seeing if I am right


Woohoo!! I've always wondered what yarn you love?!

Yesterday I just bought a whole lot of wonderful colours to start a granny stripe blanket! I'm almost finished your ripple pattern. hoorah!!

I'm thinking the bluey purple colour. middle row, second in from left.



Lovely colours, can't wait to see what you are going to make with them. I think it might be the purple top left.


I'm not going to guess ... the colour accuracy on the laptop I'm currently using is not that great. But all those colours look fab to me :D


Lovely colors! I think the pale green will be replaced :-).

A lovely burst of color. My guess is the top right, the dark purple. It's also a color that I left out of my ripple. We'll see if i'm right. Can't wait to see your start.


Thanks for returning so soon.
Lovely stuff.
My Not Right guess would be the petrol-ish blue second from right on the top row.
It will be very interesting to see how many opinions your bloggers come up with!


Happy, happy crochet prospects for you! I guess the red, maybe?


Hmm...stunning colours..I love the top row especially, and then the middle row... the bottom row is more difficult... maybe it's my screen, but I think the limey green, second in from the left might me swearing at me! It's probably my screen - I'm not good at colour...Can't wait to see the pattern :)x


My guess is the middle ball top row! But I love absolutely every colour and I wouldn't get rid of any, I'd just buy more!

Yum! Looks delicious.

As for the "not right" colour, I'm really not sure. I have no doubt that anything you make will turn out gorgeous.


Hmmmm... I think you may not like that brownish red at the very right in the middle row...


I think it's the purple top right ?


my guess is: middle row, second color from left.


Gorgeous colours again Lucy. Thank you for the fix!!!!

As for which one doesn't belong??? They all look pretty great to me, but as I know you've swapped one...perhaps the bright pink? Middle row 2nd from right.


Hmmm... My first guess would be the bottom left pale green... but then I had another look, and it COULD be the orange-ish red bottom right. Bit hard to tell with laptop monitors. Either way, Debbie Bliss is indeed that - bliss! Blankets are darned expensive to make, aren't they? Happy crocheting! :) Your hands will love it! :)


As an avid knitter, in my book there really isn't a bad Debbie Bliss Baby Cash colour....there is a better green...it's more a grass green...I'd be replacing that!! I am in the middle of crocheting a baby blanket using Baby Cashmerino...It's heaven on a crochet stick!!


My guess is one of those pale ones at the bottom left? Awful to get rid of one though isn't it, they're all lovely! I'm so pleased to have found other people need fixes such as this! I am not peculiar after all! :)

I must be a yarn addict because I was itching to see what you had chosen. I like the idea of that. The colours are gorgeous and I cant wait to see your project.Sue


Thankyou ! not sure whot colour, computer differences to real life make sutch a difference. Have to compare with my colours later as now I realy need to cook dinner.
Hugs Audra


Lovely colors! I would guess the pale mint green. It seems to be the "odd" one out. All the blues and purples go together and you even have some warm colors-orange, red, burgundy and yellow..the green seems to be the only one of its "kind"...can't wait to see !


I just recently found your blog and am addicted to it! Bought yarn to make ripple blanket; just started crocheting again and am itching to finish this pastel shell baby blanket I'm doing for the Linus Project charity. Am trying new yarn for the ripple - Plymouth Merino Select DK aka DK Merino Superwash. It got good reviews on Ravelry and the internet showed nice colors. Thank you so much for taking the time to write your blog, Lucy! I really appreciate the time you put into it and your sensibility. You seem like a lovely person. My ancestors were from Wickersley/Aston/Anston and I hope to one day be able to visit England. (I'm a Yankee.)

Well, nobody else has said it but I think it is the goldy yellow, bottom middle. I scrunched my eyes up (don't know why, this seems to help me choose/exclude colours from a group) and it didn't seem to blend with the others. Looking forward to finding out if I'm right !
