Lovely feast of colour. I've recently started a new style craft blanket which has 8 of the experimental colours on your card above...but my neutral is parchment, not apricot. It's not my usual colour mix but I am loving the way it is working out. Wish I could share my wip with you!

Izzy

I love your bright and fun colour palette, the things you create just look so happy! I'm sad to see those lovely shades discontinued from Debbie Bliss : (

Your colour sense has always been inspirational Lucy but I would look forward to see how else you can add colour. Brown and grey have their place too! http://eclectichomelife.blogspot.co.uk/2014/01/unexpected-crochet-time-glasses-case.html?m=1

I love your sense of colour! I struggle to put them together. I bought you're gorgeous 'attic 24' pack after reading about it in Simply crochet and I used Biscuits and Jam's random stripe generator to help me put it together in a lovely stripey granny blanket based on your pattern. You are such an inspiration to me I just wished I lived a bit further up country so I could come to one of your work shops! Without sounding weird, you're my hooky hero!

Nicky Higginbotham

Hi recently discovered the work of Sophie Digard whose colour palette is defo more muted but none the less stunning. Like you she uses a wide range of colours approx 70 different shades in one scarf. Agree its difficult to go with colours you arent immediately drawn to but wait with interest to see what comes off your hook next.

Anne

So many pretty colors! I like all of them but i love, love, love you colorset for the granny blanket. I am currently using it for a cor er to corner blanket. One can't buy stylecraft here in Germany but my lovely ordered some from the UK for christmas... :)
take carrand enjoy your colorplay! Anne

This yarn has become an absolute favourite of mine after first reading about it here in the attic and falling in love with the Granny Stripe. I must say I really love the grey/brown/apricot bowl! Oh that copper, I think it's my absolute favourite and I have been using it in quite a few projects. And maybe I would even put some cream in that bowl?? I really like the "girly one" a lot too! I think this will serve as my colour inspiration for a baby blanket I'll make for my best friend :-) Thank you for mentioning the 10% off, time to feed the stash and finally indulge myself with the pretty Stylecraft Alpaca dk too, have you seen it?? How I love all those colours together, I see a big shawl coming! :-) xxxx

Love love love the colors, awesome color styles!
I wanted to tell you how much I have enjoyed your articles in Simply Crochet. I have always thought some magazine should feature you and your writings. You are so full of color life and it seeps through your writings.
I'm in Las Vegas Nevada in the states and it is grey gloomy and windy here too, not too cold but funky weather for here. So I feel like I'm there with you? Be blessed my friend

Daisy

There is 59 shades of Stylecraft Special now! They added 4 new shades - Petrol, Gold, Stone and Spice!

It is funny how we choose our colour palette - I'm always drifting towards subdued colours when planning my blankets. I really wanted to use bright yarn in one of my projects, because I'm admiring your work and colour schemes, but it wasn't working for me at all. If you would look into my yarn stash you would probably shudder with disgust :-))))

juliet mellenchip

Lovely colour arrangements...bowls 2 & 3 are my favourites! Try adding pale orange and russet to bowl 5 ...just a suggestion :) Love your work and blogs...have made several pieces from your patterns and since learning crochet just over a year ago i'm totally hooked! Just discovered 'hyperbolic' crochet too.

Winwick Mum

I'm another one with an "Attic 24" pack ripple - I wrap myself up in my rainbow blanket every morning whilst I'm meditating and it's the most cosy, comforting thing. Special DK is a good weight for blankets, especially crocheted ones where the stitches are bulkier than knitted stitches. The blanket is heavy enough to be snuggly without being oppressive and having 55 colours to play with means you'd never need to choose another yarn!

You should look on the PETA website and see how cashmere goats are treated.

Liz

I missed my first delivery of Stylecraft this morning, I am hoping it will be everything you say. Your colours are not quite mine, I have gone for a slightly more muted palette. Though I am hoping that this will work in my bedroom and bring an extra dimension to the current eau de nil.

Wilfing mum

Your blog has inspired me to learn to crochet recently. I was looking at the Deramores website this week trying to decide on which yarn and colours to buy & got myself totally confused - sooooo much choice! Thankyou for this post about colour. I've just gone and ordered your style craft selection, and when I'm a little more practised, I'm going to attempt your granny stripe blanket. Baby #3 due in June, so hopefully I'll get it finished before then!

Clare

So much lovely colour a feast for the eyes on a winters day.

Lucy, I admire your colourful schemes, but unfortunately they do not quite work for me :( I quite like using grey and beige :) I was so inspired by your colourful world though that I had made a 'Lucy' ripple blanket that I use for picnics and everyone always comments on how beautiful it is. Thank you for encouraging us to try different colours to what we would normally use.

Jacqueline

I ordered the "Attic 24" pack fron am online wool retailer (I can't remember their name) - the 17 Stylecraft colours. I wouldn't have chosen some of the colours myself, but they look great together, in a finished granny square blanket outlined with white, and a part completed granny square blanket. Thank you.

Morning Lucy
Lovely post, bit by bit I am coming round to colour and its all from the inspiration you bring !
Definitely loving your grey and beige choices, I am totally hooked on greys right now...even dedicating a whole post to it, is that a bit sad ?!

Have a lovely weekend,

Nancy Caughey

I feel happy when I hear certain songs, see certain landscapes, and see your colorful palette. thanks. Looking forward to the poncho pattern.

Helen

I love playing with colour, I've set myself a target to crochet a granny square each day in February and I'm picking out all the colours I want to use today, I may even have 28 different odd balls lurking around which would make for an interesting palette!

You definitely have talent when it comes to color coordination! Love the warm hued girly color bunch so much. I started a ripple afghan but I'm not thrilled with my color choices as a whole. I may go back to the drawing board ( or color board -haha).

Catherine

Ooh, I really love the bowl of ocean blues and grassy greens. Which shades are these? Lovely inspiration as always!

miepiesheksenketel

I like how you play with colors. good idea to put them all together and take a picture to see ho it all looks together. Will keep that one in mind. :-)

I love your different colour palettes. I think we can easily get trapped into our favourite, well loved ones.

I bought the Stylecraft Special on your recommendation, at Yarndale, after having seen it and touched it. Like you I was sceptical about ACRYLIC! I've yet to start it. I wanted brighter than the Sublime one I've already made. I might even do the French ripple with it.

If you want to make something totally different, I used some King Cole Shine for a crochet Baktus scarf for a friend. I needed to make it fast. It is fabulously soft to work with, with a silver thread running through and beautiful to touch finished article. The girl I made it for is very ill and I wanted her to have something lovely. She is delighted with it.
