I am running SO late with my post this morning that it's actually now the afternoon! If you're anything like me you will have one or two of these beautiful old crocheted Afghans laying around. I come across them constantly in op shops and have to stop myself from buying them, let's be honest I only have one bed. This white one looks amazing in it's subtlety as the focal point of this uncluttered space with it's black timber floors.
If you are partial to owning an Afghan or two, or three, a great way to justify it is to dye one or two of them. Choose the right colour and you'll have a thoroughly modern looking craft focal point as shown in the image below. To get this particular shade of grey I'd mix quite a few packets of RIT's pearl grey with a touch of lavender and an ever so teeny smidgen of black until perfect. If you don't feel confident mixing colours Batik Oetoro dyes are incredible or just go the whole hog and have a professional dye house achieve a signature colour for you. If you're in Sydney Cullachange is wonderful.
