Finished Project - Ripple!

Yay, I finished my Ripple crochet blanket! It's the perfect size for on my lap when I sit on the couch.

It's a great pattern to do while watching TV, as it is so easy. If I made a mistake in the ripple pattern, I would adjust the next row accordingly.

The details:

I used a pattern by SusanB I found on Ravelry, Easy Ripple Afghan
Yarn: A cheap 8ply 100% wool, Sheperds Colour 4 Me. I used 3 50g skeins of 5 colours.

Work-in-Progress Wednesday: Appalachia

I've cast on for a new project! And, no, I haven't finished those socks...


It's a knit hat, Appalachia,  by Bear Ears. I'm using Noro Kureyon Sock and Patonyle for the main solid. A fun knit so far with my beloved Noro, though it's going very slow, because I don't know how to do stranded knitting. So I just drop and pick up each colour as I need it. I know I should practise two hands, but it feels too awkward!

I'm doing it as a KAL in Ravelry, which is spurring me on.

I've started back at a new job, so am having less time to blog and craft, but I'm starting to get used to my new schedule. I get a proper lunch break, so have taken knitting a few times, and I'm going to try to make that a habit.

In other news, I'm looking forward to the next Brown Owls meeting on Friday night. I'm glad the meetings are becoming regular again and seeing the old faces.
