Warm And Woolly.

Posted on | July 10, 2017 | 15 Comments

Knitting in Winter is a lovely way to keep warm but I have now realised that crocheting a blanket is even warmer. I have finished one in pure wool and it has been a delight to snuggle under it as it has grown.

It covers me perfectly from chin to toes, so it now sits next to my chair ready for me to use.

It is called a neat wave ripple and I have followed the pattern from Attic 24.

I kept the edging very simple – orange all round.

So there we go – a finish, but nothing to do with stitching. I must admit that I was very caught up in doing this – it was quite a distraction. But the last couple of days have seen the machine back in action.

Hope everyone has a lovely week ahead.

Cheers, Karen

    Wow–it’s just beautiful! Congrats!

  • Is there a needle you can’t handle? Seems you can do anything!
    I really like the ripple effect on the blanket. Isn’t it a relief to work with “adult” patterns and colors?
    I forgot for a moment that it’s winter there. We are dealing with 100+ degrees even as we travel the north west. 95 degrees in Montana and a serious drought will make a girl think the earth is about spontaneously combust. Hopefully it will cool off soon and there will be grass again.
