I've also made a start on the third element of the crochet-along blanket I'm making. Remember when I asked you whether I should go for cotton or wool? Thanks again for all your replies and votes for one or the other; I did go with wool (well, an acrylic blend) due to cost really. You need quite a bit of yarn for a blanket and I wanted to keep the cost down. I like natural fibres for clothing but I don't mind acrylic for blankets. The first motifs were the plum ones, then the blue ones and now it's this fairly complex flower that needs lots of colour changes! But it looks rather nice I think. This is a blanket inspired by Frida Kahlo and this latest motif is called "Bird of Paradise".
