Last night I was itching to start crocheting something new, but also wanted to watch last week’s Endeavour episode: Prey. I knew that re-edging my Rhubarb Ripple would be fiddly to begin with, so I sat on my hands. Actually I kept them busy with a glass of Calvados, if I’m completely honest. I’m glad I did because I would have missed quite something in the maze scenes! Did you watch it?
When I looked at the comments on my original post from 2012, linked above, I realised that I’ve now met three of the commenters (and we’re likely to meet again too) and three others are still in regular contact. That’s a really nice thing about blogging, online friendships become offline friendships too, if you’re lucky.
My current Kindle read As Good as God, as Clever as the Devil: The Impossible Life of Mary Bensen is a biography. It’s really well written by Rodney Bolt in a very readable style, with excerpts from other sources of material from the time. I’d never heard of Mary Benson, but the names of some of her offspring are definitely familiar. Read here for the blurb. It’s one of the best 99p Kindle deals I’ve bought.
Joining in with Ginny’s Yarn Along again.
I like the colors in your afghan. It looks like a pattern I should try with the next baby blanket.
It would be a lovely baby blanket pattern.
Lok forward to seeing the edging you choose!
I love your Rhubarb Blanket. I love the colors, the stitching, the NAME! Can’t wait to see the edging.
I hope it doesn’t disappoint! Thank you for your lovely compliments Becki.
Still very pretty.
Thank you Cathy.
Gorgeous colours :)
Aargh the maze! Thursday for the win! Loved it! Starting to feel that every series begins and ends the same way though. My baby was sick recently so I re watched the previous series’ before the new one. Now I’m pleased to see they have put Vera back on, I really like that too.
Oh do they? He isn’t a terribly happy or socially adept soul is he really. I haven’t watched Vera, but am planning to try Happy Valley.
What a gorgeous ripple!!
Love your Rhubarb Ripple – beautiful colours.
Thank you Penni
Gorgeous blanket! I love meeting bloggy friends – I’ve met so many great people either online or in person through blogging, isn’t the internet awesome? :)
Thank you! It definitely can be as a power for good.
