::Halfway through the Rhubarb Ripple blanket now::The first in the series of books. It’s predictable and easy, very comfy weekend reading in fact. The UK edition was originally called ‘Diva’s don’t Knit’…there are lots of not-so-happy comments on Amazon about this; disappointed buyers expecting this one to have been another in the series and finding they’d already read it…just to let you know.)
::A charity shop find for £1:50. It’s JAM-PACKED with patterns (charts as well as written patterns, so I ‘might’ crack charts soon – but I’m not concentrating on this until the blanket is finished.)
::And this page which makes my strange joining obsession happy!
::Some more Spring Flower circles completed (yes, yes I’m darning in the ends as I complete a batch. I’ve learnt my lesson now…:-D)
I’m watching episodes of the BBC’s Little Dorrit at the moment, my lovely friend N has lent me the box-set, today’s episode was when Mr X gets the news about X (no spoilers from The Little Room, oh no – not from me!) and I confess to having to put down my crochet and wipe my eyes…
::OOoh a new edition. This magazine is improving all the time. Now with great shopping, craft courses, craft holidays(!) and blog and knitting/crochet fiction recommendations. I tend to ignore the knitting patterns and power on through to the crochet, but I might head back to knitting one day, so I have saved a stash of the magazines for then.::NO NEVER (remember my 1970s poodle wine bottle cover and Barbie toilet roll cover comment?) Susie Johns what were you thinking??!?…….This must have been a blip?
HAPPY WEEKEND TO YOU ALL
HAVE A GOOD CRAFTY ONE
….maybe with a drop of something nice to drink…but please PleAsE don’t let it have come out of a knitted or crocheted bottle covered….ummm bottle. I implore you!!!!!
Try again then! Going to HAVE to make a bottle cover ;)
Novel looks interesting, I like it when they aren’t hard work.
Guess what I started this week?…. Some flowers for a garland!
You see “k” on the page that feeds your joining obsession… I did that when I made the fingerless gloves, not that I knew what I was doing at the time! (no change there then!)
K looks V hard Mrs Patch!
Probably did it wrong ;)
Your bargain book is a wonderful reference and inspiration – my local library has a copy and I take it out regularly, just to see all the clever things one can do (that I never do! haha). Enjoy :-)
Oh – good to know its a useful one! The explanation on charts is definitely going to help me crack them; it’s so clearly written.

Great Bargain books – I often have a mooch but don’t find anything so exciting. I’m loving this months LGC too – my little granny squares bag made it to the front cover x

Loving the ripples!
