Ok - the ripple blanket has been a great way to use up oddments of my stash and it's great fun seeing what colour-matches emerge (I was picking yarn randomly from a bag).
But - I was never completely happy with the cast-on (is that the correct term for crochet?) edge. It originally took me a few attempts until I had something I thought was OK but it somehow still wasn't right. I plugged on relentless, convinced I could block the edging into submission later; it looks OK (above) doesn't it?
However, the way it didn't lie flat mocked me with each new stripe of colour:
I decided I could perhaps correct the proper zigzag edge by picking up the stitches and working downwards:
Hmmm - a valiant effort but ....................................................... no!
So, I started with a new length of yarn, making my tension incredibly (for me) loose and guess what:
Ah - that's more like it!
Now I plan to unravel each row from the original and use it on the new piece. Happy days ahead, rippling away :-)
