So - if you have been following my recent crochet conversion, you may know about my desire to ripple. I did a practise swatch at the weekend - and here it is. What do you think? Pretty good - huh?
I loved doing it, and really got into the rhythm of it all. Ready for the real thing?
I have crocheted the foundation chain - 227 sts, and started on the first row last night. This is the hardest part, as I really have to keep counting all the time to set the pattern up. So - no distractions until that is done.
I am choosing colours completely at random, by closing my eyes and picking a ball out of the basket. First out was Debbie Bliss cashmerino DK in green (shade 18011).
No time for reading at the moment( except for glances at the new Country Living magazine), as this is taking up all my 'time to myself' moments, but James's bedtime reading right now is Exploring the Deep, by Jacques Cousteau. A charity shop find for £1, and an absolutely delightful book. What a beautiful gentle writer M. Cousteau is - even when he is describing some scary moments.
I am happy to be joining in with the Yarn Along weekly posts, hosted by Ginny @ Small Things. Pop over and explore the wonders of the woolly world.
