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!

 I started following Mel's ripple-a long a couple of weeks ago as motivation to finish my ripple blanket I started a few months ago.  I'm going to try to start posting it on Sunday's, instead of Monday's, because they are almost a full day ahead of us in Tasmania, Australia!  So when she posts her ripple a long, I'm always a day late!  If you look at her blog you will see she is starting a new hexy blanket and I love the colors she picked out.
One thing I am disappointed about with my ripple blanket, is I picked out the dark pink and the dark blue colors as the 'main' colors of my ripple, and I just noticed I've only used the dark pink three times.  Geeeeesh!  I should have used it way more.
The good news is, it's not too late for me to step up the pinks and blues, because I want this to cover the whole bed.  I bought enough yarn to cover the whole bed.  So I figure by the time I pull it up over the pillows or down on the end of the bed, the lack of dark pink won't show.  So I have learned when doing random colors in a blanket,  I need to spread it out more often on the bed.  I love the random colors though.  It's fun.

  1. It's really fabulous! I don't think you need to worry to much about the pink, it will even out! I really love the colours that you're using, it's really very pretty.xx

  2. Although I haven't crocheted regularly in years, this pattern was also one of my favorites and done with the colors you selected, it looks great on the bed!...:)JP

  3. I love it. Reminds me of giant strips of rick-rack.

  4. Beautiful, and the pink really does stand out :) xx

  5. It is so pretty, and the pink stands out on its own as is, so I think it is doing its job.

  6. That's really gorgeous Cindy, love how it's coming along!
