I've decided that I've drooled over Lucy's ripple blanket for the last time and I'm making one of my own. I started it last night. It's just going to be a scrap ripple. I'll just let the colors speak to me and tell which is next. I got all boo-boo lipped yesterday evening when I saw Kate's ripple blanket she was giving away and whined out loud. That's when Barnaby said, "Why don't you just start making your own and work on it between other projects?" Very good question, I thought to myself. "Okay, I will!"
So the Teddy Bears were set aside and yet another project began. There were no instructions as to how many chains to make to begin or what size hook to use, so I started with a chain-185 and a G hook. That makes mine 56" wide. I'll stop when it's somwhere around 68" and put the edging on. But that's a looooooog way off. I hope to use up a lot of my Red Heart yarn stash that makes my nose itch. Once it's finished and has been washed and rinsed in fabric softener, it's fine.
Is it nap time yet?
I went and got my eye exam this morning and got a new prescription for glasses. I'm off to go shop online for frames. Have a good day.
