So - I have chosen the yarn for my Ripple blanket - mostly pinky purpley shades with the odd dash of lichen green and faded yellow. I think I have been influenced by the landscape colours of the moment here. But I am just so excited about this - crochet seems to be such a colourful thing. I am sure knitting is too, but - sigh - I have lost my heart to the hook, I am afraid. Talking of hooks -, while I was ordering my wool, this "ergonomically designed" crochet hook just happened to fall into the virtual basket - see it there? It looks like something from an operating theatre tray, but it feels very nice in the hand. I think we are going to be very close friends.
I have a couple of things to cross off my list this week, but very soon, I intend to snuggle down with my new buddy and start this rippling thang. I very much hope that in this spot next week, you will see some colourful wavy crochet lovliness.
And to continue the getting ready theme - some essential reading material in preparation for the arrival some other new friends who will be joining us at the end of the month. Oh my - oh my!
Pop over to see Ginny at Small Things and see what the yarn along is today. x
