Star ripple II


  

This second 12 pointed star ripple baby blanket (or lap blanket as it kept my legs nicely warm, while I sewed) took me just a few days to crochet. Then at least a week to darn! There were more exciting things to go onto; with a new Hitchhiker scarf in progress and the Spice of Life CAL last week. But I made myself finish as I loathehaving unfinished tasks hanging over my head. All the pattern details etc can be found in the blog post I wrote after finishing the first.

The yarn colours in this one are Stylecraft Special DK: lime, raspberry, pale rose and parchment.

Oh my goodness I feel poorly today! I’ve come down with a stinking cold. They knock you for six, don’t they? It’s so long since I had one this bad. I’ve really appreciated mugs of peppermint tea, easy knitting and this week’s Downton to cheer me up this afternoon.

  1. This is absolutely gorgeous my friend. I have been home yesterday and today again with this horrible cold and now I think the flu ( I’m at the Drs office today). Hopefully we both will feel better soon. Thank goodness for knitting and tea, ah ?

  2. Your blanket colours look really nice. I’ve finished my first star blanket and have a plan for a second but I have a cross stitch to finish before I start it.
    Hope you feel better soon. I thought I’d gotten away with not having my daughters colds then I felt a scratchy throat start – grr

  3. Hope you are better soon. I love your blanket. Remembering the cal you organised I finally gave my cottage garden blanket to my granddaughter. Turns out the whole family love it!
