I said I'd be back later this week to show you where I'm at with the ripply crochet...and here I am.
I started my ripple blanket two months ago on the 24th December, and as of today I am two and a half rows past the midway point. I am so happy. It IS going to be finished in time for winter! In fact, it is going to be finished in time for autumn...and since summer has pretty much not existed, it has been lovely to have it over my legs while crocheting in front of the telly in the evening. I've heard lots of shows of late (I have to look at what I am doing while crocheting...I am a long way off being able to crochet without looking at my work), but I have missed most of the pictures...I end up not really knowing what is going on, but it is still usually at least a little entertaining ;-).
He has wanted to sink his brand new, pearly whites into my bamboo crochet hook ever since I started, and finally he got his chance! Also note the approximately 15 stitches he pulled out at photo left...but that's the beauty of crochet...so easy if you lose stitches, there is no downward propagation effect, no major 'picking up stitches' effort required....you just keep going.
...and here is the little mauler, putting his beautiful chompers on display for you...
Hope you have a great weekend,
