WIP - ripples
I've started a ripple crochet blanket. Its fast becoming an addiction. I started it using a pattern for a ripple scarf but didn't like the single crochet so have adapted it as I've gone along.
On to the second ball of wool. I'm hoping this will be a picnic blanket for far off summer days (they seem so far away for now!). The second colour is a lot more zingier than the photo. I think the last one captures it best but it still doesn't do it justice - I'm blaming the winter lighting! It's been a source of entertainment for one of the cats too - though I can see him prowling around the front of the house as I write this!
A few quick card makes. I haven't been as prolific as usual in my card making this year and these were for a house warming, to say hi to a friend who was soldering on, two new baby cards, and one for a relation on BMs who is ill and recovering. I made the 3 for BM to give him a choice. Not a lot of cards stockpiled at the moment. I just haven’t been making them over the last year or so. Possibly because my craft stuff is unevenly distributed throughout the house and not so easy to access.
A few quick and oh so satisfying makes with cotton yarn. I followed the Greedy for Colour Christmas Bauble tutorial at the start and then kind of winged it at the end. I also added a few beads for an extra dimension.
