Can't choose

Hi folks,

I learned to crochet a couple of weeks ago and yes, it's addictive.

I'm working on a blanket for myself which is more stripes than ripples:


And then there's the ripple blanket which is a gift for a friend. I'm on the third (and final!) version after having made it too small, twice. The first version (aka 'the scarf') is being ripped and I'll finish the second one for myself if I've got enough yarn left after the gift one is done.

I really like the blanket you are making for yourself! Are you using a patter?

Shannon said...

Hey, F-G!! I love your stripey one! And the other three (now two?).

I also like the stripy one and would also like to know about the pattern.

I concur. The stipey blanket is adorable. Actually, I have been lurking somewhat creepily and dying to make a blanket for myself. How did you learn to crochet? It looks like you've come a long way in a few weeks and I'd like to learn from whatever you used!

Oooh, I love the striped blanket! I was considering making one of those - now maybe I'll have to!

I am making two stripy blankets myself!

I believe it is the "Vintage vertical stripe" (google this and you'll find it at one blog).
