I'm ploughing my way through the pink charity blanket - mindless knitting for in front of the TV but I needed another challenge. I spotted the crocheted 'ripple' on Roo Knits blog - and she kindly pointed me in the direction of Lucy at Attic24 - wherein she descibes( in very easy instructions!) how to achieve this ripple effect!
Needless to say, I couldn't wait to have a go - here my test 'sampler :
This was using the leftovers from the green charity blanket - I might use up the remnants from the pink one when that's finished......!
........and onto further distractions! I happened to rest my gaze upon one of my stash boxes this morning and noticed some cream 3ply I bought ages ago with a vague idea of knitting something fine.
On Ravelry I found this - called 'My Heaven', by Patusha.
So, I've started the outer lace edge.......followed the instructions to the letter and after pinning it out to see, I think it matches the original (although that was in blue and seems a much finer yarn, even though the pattern says 3ply......!)
No doubt there will be many more 'distractions' along the way.......!
