Well I'm meant to be working and doing chores around the home but somehow I find myself playing 'hooky' and updating my blog instead. Ooops!!
So last night I tried the ripple over my box for size ...
It's 28 inches point to point and although I don't want it completely covering the box, I do want it draped over it somewhat! So I still have a way to go yet with it. It seems to be puckering up a bit in the middle until I flatten it out though, so I don't know if that's normal for this type of blanket or if I'm doing something wrong?
From reading others blogs I've realised this is a 'scrap' ripple, because I'm just using up my wool oddments.
I like this ripple pattern though and I've now seen it in thought out colour schemes as well and it looks amazing, rather than thrown together like my little offering.
I'll have to show you all the lovely wool I now have in that box as well, it's like a little treasure trove!
I also started another thread doily last night. It's a little rippled as well, haha, but at least these do flatten out nicely. I must try to block it this time as well.
My mum has got back to tapestry after putting it aside and just having no interest for well over a year. She has a big picture of the Mallard, so she has started working on that. I'll show you how she's doing with it when I get chance to take a photo.
Anyhow, hope all is good with all of you!
