Round ripple!

Life has got in the way of blogging and doing alot craft wise this week. My mum isn't so well, I'm running Tom around alot. Joe has had a portion of the bible he needed to practice for a reading and we have a friend (in his 70's) who lives down south but has decided he wants to move up near us. This means we are then all near and can  look after him etc if needed, but for now can all spend more time with him.   So we are trying to look round for properties that might suit his needs.

So I haven't got round to kitting up the stitching I intended to, but I have been crocheting still.

I'm making a round ripple blanket type thing, to go over the box I keep my yarn scraps in.  It's just oddments of yarn as it's bits I've been given or picked up in the charity shops. I don't have yarns I bought for specific projects at the moment.

I'm really enjoying doing this, I can't wait until it's big enough to thrown over the box. What do you think of it so far?

At the moment it measures appx 21 1/2 inches, point to point, but I think it's going to have to grow a fair bit yet still!
The two blues on it are different colours, the one nearest the bright pink I'm working on at the moment is more of a greyish blue. 
I still can't quite believe I'm able to crochet now, it's so much fun!!



  1. That is very attractive and will make a great throw.It's a great idea to use up scraps of yarn :)

  2. Lovely!The colours are so beautiful!
    I wish to do something like that... lol! But I don´t know ;)

    Sorry for your Mum!Big hug!

  3. So pretty sis! Love your choice of shades, the way you arrange them. And by the way, I've been meaning to leave a comment on your previous post, but forgot to do so. Your pink doily is very pretty, lovely color! And I like so much your table/vase arrangement. It really looks a crafter's corner.

    Take care & miss you sis!
