In my blog I plan to chat about nature, crafts, baking, gardening, beekeeping, family, and whatever else seems appropriate at the time. Sit back, relax, and enjoy!

Ripple-a-long Monday

Remember Ripple Tuesdays?
Much has changed.
1) Kristi is recovering...
2) The yarn store has moved locations and isn't open yet...
3) Tuesday crochet now meets on Thursdays, but isn't meeting right now because of change #2.
4) We kind of stopped working on them because of Christmas projects and Winter Woolen Workshop projects.
So, when I saw a post on Facebook from Melissa,  Day to Day saying she was going to have a ripple-a-long, I decided to join in.  I really want to get this blanket done and it's the right motivation to get me going.
It's big and nice and snuggly right now so it keeps me warm while I ripple.  And it's so darn cold out right now.  Apparently we are in the direct path of another snow/ice storm.

So, on Friday evening, I got the blanket out and started working on it.  But the minute I got it out, my niece, who was spending the night, sat on my lap.  Then, in a jealous fit, Dixie sat on my lap.  So I was attempting to ripple around them.  Not a good idea.  I ripped that row out.  
Big difference between ripping and ripple-ing!
Then Sunday evening I got it back out.  Apparently,  Dixie thinks it's an open invitiation for him to jump on my lap.   And when he looks at me like this....I have a hard time resisting.  So I settled him in beside me, and got started....again.
He just likes to snuggle.

 Here it is so far. 
 It's quite an ambitious project for me.  I want it to fit our bed.
 It looks like it's about half way there, but it really isn't...I haven't pulled it down over the end of the bed.

So I need to get back at it folks.....
If I can keep him off of it long enough....sigh...
