One A Day Tuesday Tallies (25 Oct 2011)


A little bit more productive week this time around.  The big life issue that was causing me stress has been dealt with this week and to be honest I have used crochet as a way to de-stress and have rippled away pretty much none stop during my spare time.  I have also managed to make a whopping 5 scrapbook LO's.  This is very unheard of for me, especially during a working week.

This week my Lucy & Heather's Ripple Along looks like this:



Another 4 rows!

But I have also been working on my Rowan Giant 4ply Ripple which is to fit a king size bed and now looks like this:



I have made this from scratch this week and is 3 rows long.  This gives me a total of 7 rows made this week with 3 being extra long.  I am really really pleased with what I have achieved and hope with it being half term I can make good progress on these two projects again.  Sadly I am still waiting for the mid blue for Liam's Red, White & Blue Granny blanket.  I am thinking I may have to try and match another mid blue from another manufacturer even if that means I have to frog the last 2 rounds on the 6 I have completed so far.  Fingers crossed the shop can get some in over the next 2 weeks or frogging it is.

Please visit Gingerbread Girl and click on the links from her blog to see all the other wonderful one a day projects.

Enjoy your week and hope to be back next week with lots done.

I love the colours of your ripple blanket and wow, that giant one is going to look gorgeous. I started my ripple on Sunday, isn't it therapeutic, I live the pattern.
I've just seen you're not at the cropaganza, haven't seen you for months. Take care. Deb xxxxxx

Wow you have been busy, and you are brave taking on two ripples at once!

karisma said...

Both look lovely! Seeing these ripples makes me want to make one too!

Your ripples are both lovely, i do hope your yarn comes soon, waiting is horrible isn't it, but worse I guess would be ripping back your work so I hope it doesn't come to that.

Your scrapbooking is brilliant, so clever and a great way to keep your memorable pics.

Going back to that newspaper article, I love stripes and I loved the telephone and lampshade, but I think my hubby would think I'd finally lost it if I started one!

Your ripple looks great I love the colours. You are very brave with the giant ripple. It all makes me want to start one.
