I see stars before my eyes!

I am so in awe of all the beautiful and HUGE blankets that are being created all over the Globe and am almost embarrassed at the sizes of my own feeble attempts, however, I won't spare you the pictures. :)

I posted my first ripple attempt a wee while ago, which has had to be put aside whilst I meet my deadline! Thank you for your nice comments about it. They gave me confidence in my new found skill.

This attempt is supposed to turn into a baby blanket, which is a gift for a Christening. The Christening is taking place next Sunday!

I had bought some bundles of Jaegers 50g Baby Merino 100% wool in 4 ply in three different blue colours, from which I was knitting a patch work style baby blanket, but it didn't turn out how I wanted it to, so I frogged the lot and started this instead! I'll post update pics on my blog for now and will post a picture here of the finished product.

Until then, please do wish me luck with meeting the deadline! :)

Summer In The City (Valley)

Just a short post to say that I have officially ceased working on my ripple afghan until the weather cools down next Fall. I still have the ripple vest to work on and, of course, many other projects on the needles/hooks to keep me busy and out of mischief. Sasha doesn't know what to think of this 1/3-done afghan! She refuses to sit on it...for now.
