Finally finished

Crochet ripple throwMy ripple throw is finally finished.

Crochet ripple throwThose of you who have been reading a while will remember that this was my one a day project which I was unable to complete to the size I intended due to running out of wool… anyways I decided to just border it off, and even though its not bed size I still love it and its perfect to wrap around you when its chilly on the couch!

We had some fun trying to get a good photo of it this afternoon…

Rippling progress

Well I was making good progress this week with the pink ripple, but have hit a bit of a problem. You see I thought I still had another ball of the bright pink… but after searching high and low apparently that is not the case.  A quick trip to Spotlight yeilded no results, so my Mum is trying the Spotlight where she lives to see if they have it.  Eek!

Here’s how the throw is looking and the offending wool.

Crochet Ripple blanket and orchidsMum gave me that beautiful orchid spray about 2 and a half weeks back and its still going strong, I love the pale green and pink together.

OrchidIm going to head on over and check out how everyone else is doing at Carole’s, why don’t you have a squizz too?

Lots of Love, Janette xxoo

PS. I got my cast off today, yay! But am back in the moon boot (boo).

This week’s work in progress

Well Tuesday has rolled around so quickly I dont believe it.

My one a day blanket is growing nicely, I made quite a bit of progress this week and its finally looking less like a scarf and more like a blanket!

Crochet ripple blanketIm up to 40 rows (hmmm that sounds a bit pathetic seeing how long Ive been working on it…)

I really enjoyed seeing how everyone elses projects had grown last week, and cant wait to see the progress today.  Why not head over to Gingerbread Girl and check it out?

Ripple throw update

Well my one a day blanket is coming along nicely. Its been a bit chilly the last couple of nights and so it has been nice to be tucked up on the couch hooking away cosy underneath it.
