Attic24 recently and I have been totally inspired by her beautiful blankets and her enthusiasm for crochet and wanted to try out this lovely ripple stitch straight away. I picked ten colours from my stash that looked like they had enough left to do the job. They are very random and not really chosen to work together particularly well although I think in reality they look slightly better that they do in this photo which has distorted some of them especially the pink.
Once again the size is approximately 1mtr square, and I know it doesn't look like a square here but I think that must be down to the angle I took the photo from.(ie. balancing on the edge of the coffee table) to try and get above it. I am really quite pleased with the way it has turned out and it only took me about a month to make which is quite quick for me as I only do it when watching TV, and I don't really do a lot of that. Here is a little close up of the stitches and the simple border. I am now just going to knit a couple of little cardigans to fill up the parcel before I send it off
and then I am going to have a little rest from Africa knitting to work on some stuff for myself. I have a pattern I want to knit for my baby great granddaughter before christmas and then I would really like to make a blanket for myself with one of Lucy's yarn packs which I am hoping to have as a christmas present.
Thank you for taking time to visit me and for your comments which are all really appreciated
