Ripple-y goodness

Whilst holidaying I put some serious time into my summer colours project: a ripple blanket.

I'm using this pattern from Lucy - it's really straightforward to follow, even for relative newbies like myself. I have only made one proper mistake so far, which is making my initial chain too tight. It's a problem that I'll just have to live with - it's not major - it just means that one edge looks a bit stretched as opposed to all the lovely bendy ripples!

A summer rainbow!

I am super pleased with how it's going so far, even though it's a slow process; each row takes about an hour, so a single coloured stripe (2 rows) is two hours' work. A labour of love :)

So cute! Wish I had the patience for that.

So pretty! I am looking now for a winter needlework project.

I don't know about patience - I don't think I have too much of that! It feels more purposeful than watching TV, and was handy when we were driving in Europe and I didn't have the Internet to browse on my phone. Plus there is an enormous sense of satisfaction when you've finished a row!
