New blog! and crochet cushion beginnings

Hey look, I have a blog now! :) After a long summer of doing things outside, I need indoor things to fill my time. A new crochet project, taking photos of said crochet project, and blogging them should do the trick! I'm making a cushion cover, using Lucy of Attic24's Summer Garden Granny Square pattern, and her join-as-you-go method, which I've not tried before, but am expecting to be considerably less soul-destroying than joining everything together at the end.

I was driving myself crazy trying to pick a colour scheme so I just narrowed it down to 9 definite colours and 3 maybes, plus a rough idea of balancing out colours and... lightnesses (there must be a better word than that) in each square, and am just going to go crazy within that and see how it turns out.

These are the colours. I think I'm going to use the yellow with the others, but I'm either not going to use the white or cream, or use 1 of them for the outer round of each square.

Terrific progress so far! Given the strength of the cold I have at the moment, I think that's a good evening's work. I'm mustering up the courage to go to a craft group on Monday, so this'll be something I can take along with me.
