finnished project in the Netherlands, mama Lieveheersbeestje.

It's finaly finnished! After about three months I finaly finnished this blanket...

The collor-scheme was designed by myself and I crochet ripples at the sides too..

An the blanket was used befóre it could be washed! It is crochet with cheap acryl, but very good washable, so easy to use and soft.

First Ripple

This blanket was based on a scarf that I meant to make. The entire project took me about nine or ten months, I think. I had lots of other projects going at the same time, so it dragged for a while.

Yarn: Ella Rae Classic
Pattern: Chevron blanket from Vintage Crochet

Notes: Chained 144. Next time I will go bigger! This would have been a nice size for a baby, I think. Luckily, I have a small dog who is willing to put the blanket to good use, but my kids are definitely too big to use it for TV time.

Matching scarf and handwarmer set

I finished the matching scarf (to my ripple handwarmers), about a hour before my friend arrived from the airport on Christmas eve.

The New Year Ripple progresses... a bit

Time for my annual update on the progress of my New Year Ripple. It's been 2 years since I started this afghan and here's how far I've gotten:

New Year Ripple 090101

Not terribly good, is it? But 2009 is the year I've resolved to "Finish It or Frog It". This one is definitely not a frogger so I'd better get my finger out and finish it!

Wishing you all a very productive 2009!
