The start of a new week, Monday here again already.
Hope everyone had a good weekend. I am very lucky to be able to be on-line this morning as my Talk TAlk landline is down. Thankfully the internet is okay. Fingers Crossed!
Very chilly weekend, rainy and cold. Good job I have something now to snuggle up too! Yes, finally it's ready to be unveiled!!!!! Ta. dah!! (As Lucy says) ha.ha.
I wanted to do another Ripple. We all know they're addictive! This time one for my Lounge. When it started off I really wasn't sure about the colours although I knew they were the same colours as my sofa, I still had my doubts. But after doing a few rows and trying to be 'creative' with how I arranged the Ripple to take my photo I soon got into it.
It was nice to sit by the fire and do my Ripple while watching TV.
I was so.....happy to finally get that last row in! 100 rows in all. Measuring 40" x 63". Hayfield DK. Around £1.49 a 100gm ball. I would say roughly £9.00 to make. Just an edging of Double Crochet. I really have a problem with putting an edging on any wider than that. I think it spoils the flow of the Ripple.
Then outside to take some shots. Sun today makes a change. Lighting is a problem now.....
Took along my Crocheted Carnations out of the vase on the fireplace to take a shot. They matched beautifully.
Ta - dah!!
I really enjoyed doing this one. Just what I need on these cold nights. I have been a little held up with this one. It's taken me slightly longer, but does it matter? Got there in the end....... I hope you enjoy looking at my Ripple.
What's next?.............. I have a plan BUT I'm not sure whether it's going to work out so all I can say is 'WATCH THIS SPACE!'.
Thanks to everyone who has taken the time and trouble to comment on my Ripples. My friend BrendaS2 gave me the pattern, without her all of this wouldn't have been possible. So thanks Dear Brenda x
