I have set about a new project this week as I have a few friends expecting babies very soon. The nearest due is a colleague from work and she is expecting a baby girl. So I had a little look around to see what I could make and as I follow Little Dove Crochet and have seen the lovely blankets she makes, I was inspired to have a go. Faye uses the neat ripple pattern from Attic 24 for her blankets and as I am a big admirer of Lucy from Attic 24's work and always follow her on her blog this was a perfect project for me.
Yesterday my order of wool arrived from Wool Warehouse and I was so excited that I put aside the afternoon for a crochet marathon.
I had selected Stylecraft Special DK for my choice of wool and ordered four colours.
4. Pale Rose
Then I set about a lovely cosy afternoon on the settee with my wool and crochet hook and soon the ripples were emerging.
I love the colours and they remind me of Neapolitan ice cream so hence the title for this post! I couldn't believe how quickly it grew. I must say a HUGE thank you to Lucy for her very clear tutorial on her blog. Give it a go!
I will post again with my progress. Bye for now.
