Sleuthing

I'm contemplating the next blanket or Afghan. Pinterest is a great source of inspiration, but the patterns themselves can sometimes be difficult to track down. After some sleuthing, I found the flowers in a row pattern here and the triangles pattern here. I worked samples of both. I think I'll start with triangles and come back to the flowers. I think I prefer the triangle with the cream centre; seven different colours in each triangle might be a bit muddled. But the contemplation will continue as I spin the first batch of wool.

  4. I like your choice! I don't think to go to Pinterest very often, probably because I can spend hours browsing and thinking about what I'd like to do instead of actually accomplishing something. :-)

  5. The cream center really looks nice. Will you alternate the triangles in the row?

  7. I like the cream centres, brings out the other colours in the triangle, sometimes it takes a while to trace the patterns used but it can be worth while in the end. Pinterest brings a lot of ideas not all work.
