I try really hard to begin something prepared, but sometimes it just happens. I change my mind.
That's what happened with the flower baby blanket that I'm making again to write the pattern out. I started with the darker red color, and while it's a lovely color and I tend to gravitate towards reds (very much like Flor), I didn't like how it was turning out for the blanket pattern photographs. Nor for the intended recipient.
So 6 petals into it, I stumbled upon this lovely color. Actually, I was at Joann's looking for tan size 3 crochet thread, and this was on an end cap beckoning me. Seriously, I saw it and thought what a great color it'd be for the blanket, but I was already committed to the red. I walked around to look for other things, but kept coming back to it. So, there's my willpower for you. I bought 6 skeins. Sigh. I even called after we'd gone to my parent's for dinner and asked them to see if there was any more in that dye lot.
I'm 6 petals in again, I'm confident that this IS going to be the color and there are NOT going to be any additional color waffling. I AM going to finish the blanket in this yarn so that I can finally make the blanket pattern available. I am liking the way it's turning out by the way, I think the way I've written it will make it very easy to decrease to make a teeny tiny baby blanket, or to increase to make a humongous adult size blanket- just depends on how much time you want to spend making it!
