It’s growing very fast, I find that I can’t do fewer than 2 stripes at a sitting, even if time is pressing and I need to do just half a row….addictive or what?!
I think the next bit is going to go into bluey greens and I’ll try the yacky green out too; but if it fails the audition it’s OUT!
I’m enjoying the trebling but wanted to try something new. I find that I can’t just concentrate on one project, I have to try a few alongside each other. It’s like me and books. I usually have a poem anthology, a non-fiction, a fiction and maybe something else I’m dipping in and out of. Variety is the spice of life, and all that. :-)
I’m using Nicki Trench’s pattern for the wave cushion (see link at the side for the book.) I suspect this is what everyone else is calling ripple pattern. It’s great. I enjoyed it last night, but if you’re wondering why I stopped in the middle…there was a bombshell in the middle of Roger and Val have just got in that required me to stop! and talk! Then it was time for bed Zebedee…
If, unlike me, you’re a crochet expert and notice a flaw in my waves tell me please. Gently!
PS: Sorry that the pics are a bit fuzzy but I wanted to show you how I’m getting on. The flash had to do the job as the sun is in bed now, and it’s never as good as natural sunlight.
Looking good!! I like your color combo on the stripe.
Thanks Erin :-)
Both are looking VERY beautiful. I have to make myself finish one thing before spending money and starting another or I might but the first down and not finish it! I shall post my progress so far very soon.
Thank you very much!
I have that lovely stash of yarn and so for the first time feel I can start and stop with new things as I go along with the Granny Stripe. I’ve never had a bulk order like that and I’M A FAN now!
Contemplating buying a bulk order of cottons….ooooh!
Look forward to seeing your post soon Patchness.
Me too. Its really nice having lots of colours around to just dip into when you need them. I’m hoping I will have lots of bits left and if not I’m going to buy another pack straight away!!
Exactly what I’m thinking too…..well it has be done if you happen to run out halfway through a project. It’s the LAW! ;-p
You wont believe this, but I have also just started a granny strip blanket using Stylecraft Special DK, I am probably at about the same distance through as you. I plan to put a post on regarding the blanket and my other crochet projects this weekend, thought you maybe intrested to see how different they look, just by using different colour combinations. I also have a liking for Debbie Bliss and Rowan but also find them really expensive. I managed to make a baby blanket for my son out of Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino, it is lovely to work with and so soft. Loving your blog, I am new to this so would be grateful for any comments you may have on my blog.
I look forward to seeing your blanket! Ty for the link on your blog, appreciated. xx
