I’d forgotten that there were tulips in this pot last year, what a lovely surprise!
There are signs of Spring everywhere…
Friday night I started a ripple blanket. It’s not such a good idea when you find that you’ve increased trebles four times instead of two, the following morning! Crochet after wine is probably not recommended. (Unless you love undoing crochet!)
I’m enjoying choosing the next colour for my rainbow granny stripe. I haven’t got a plan and that’s the way I like it.
Oops! The ripple is shorter than the granny stripe…but edging should sort that little issue.
I prefer Lucy’s ripple pattern (see her Attic 24 blog for pattern, link to the right), rather than the wave stitch I tried for the cushion cover featured in Nicki Trench’s Cute and Easy Crochet book (see link). My tension’s loose usually and Lucy’s ripple seems to suit it better. I do wonder if the rainbow granny stripe blanket will be more popular as it’s thicker, and probably warmer, than the ripple.
Finally look who surprised me…..
Ha! As I added these last two pics I heard this playing on my ipod:
“Tell her I’ll be waiting in the usual place….”
