Any woollen item that enters our house is promptly met with Poppy screams of “I am NOT wearing it – it is itchy!!!!” but she was so happy to snuggle into the ripple blanket while I was making it that she begged for her own. As luck would have it the wool went on sale 40% off. We went into Lincraft and she was given a VERY specific section (We don’t want to be crocheting with that horrid fluffy yarn or the pompom one!) to choose whatever colours she liked. It was so cute to see her feeling empowered to make any choice, so 14 rainbow coloured selections later this is what we ended up with and now she tells me her favourite colour is not pink – it is rainbow – yippee! She did ask though if it would be ready the next morning …..
