Snow is gone but I am still feeling creative.

Look at this. Isn't it beautiful. The instructions are hopefully idiot proof. I am going to have a go at it. I am hoping I am the old dog who can learn a new trick. The blog is just lovely so I will make my way through it just as soon as I can get the hang of the ripples. No-one in my family crochets and so there was no-one to teach me. In fact I am pretty sure that my grandma didn't knit or embroider either. My mum embroidered at school and knitted for me when I was a child but otherwise nothing there either. Anyway I can, or at least could, kind of knit. I made the kids jumpers and other clothes when they were little. I can do a bit of basic embroidery. It's time to see if I can still do any kind of crochet. The only thing that puts me off crochet is the endless changing of wool. I like to start something and get into it. I can see how that could happen if I was knitting, for example, a granny blanket. So when I saw a few photos of these lovely ripple blankets I was hooked (geddit??)

Just of try to find a crochet hook and some wool for a bit of a practice before I invest in materials.

I just googled images of ripple crochet and am now promtped to ask the age old question. How come some people are so clever, and I am not? Sigh.

  2. I googled it because I wanted to see what you were talking about. Very pretty. Still, I think I would rather buy one from someone else than do the work myself.

    1. Hi Daizy
      The cold weather and being stuck indoors without distraction, got to do something so it might as well be pretty. Also good for my hands. They ache a lot the last few years from all of the computer work over the years.

  3. No photo on my end, take some baby steps and give it a try. Your local yarn shop might have free classes to get you started.

  4. I think my tutorials will have to come from youtube. Our local wool shop is holding less and less stock and looks to be ion the edge of closure. Very sad.
