Hi there was gonna wait till tomorrow to post these new pics, but i thought hey anything could crop up, soooo I'm gonna Tah Dah the finished blanket now................... Hope you like, this is probably my favorite of my own blankets so far, although i have to say there are some blankets out there in blogland that i would (maybe) give my eye teeth for!!!!!
I love this though, am def chuffed & yes its staying putt, not sure where to use it but it'll be somewhere in my own home :D
Eventually did decide to go with a simple border & i am glad i did, something fancy & flowery would have been gross
One round single crochet in dusty pink, three rows of cream shells, one round of turquoise, single crochet again & last round in blue...........finito!!!!
So on to something new, i've been dying to join in on the ripple hook along & got stuck in today
I'm about 13 rows in now, took this shot at 8 rows. Was taking the snap on my coffee table next to this wee glass paper weight & thought don't they look sweet together, so being all creative & all that & also cause I'm so excited bout my new photoscape learning i decided cute mosaic.
Rippling is so relaxing, you just sit & chill & let the ripples flow, blissful hooking, no stress just ripple......ripple.....ripple......heh heh sounds like ice cream ( in ireland we have an icecream called ripple, just in case you think that statement sounded too weird)
Thanks once again for all your lovely comments, always love reading them "a lot"
By way of thanks i want to give you guys a giggle. This is a link from my daughters Sophie's Blog, I read it yesterday & cracked up from laughing, do read it you'll have a laugh!!!!
Ps A few people have asked about the roses pattern, i got it from Nikki Trench's book Cute & Easy Crochet. Would love to post the pattern but am not sure if thats allowed, will def check it out to see if it would be ok.
Have a lovely evening
Lots of love Karen xx
