Monday, 3 March 2014 crochet project

Hello lovely people,
I hope you had a great weekend.
A couple of weeks ago my gem of a husband bought me some more yarny stash from my local yarn shop ...I had decided I wanted to make a blanket and thought I wanted lots of colours.
Well, these yarny balls of goodness played on my mind a lot.  The more I thought about them the more confused I became on how to use them.  I had tentatively made some granny squares but wasn't convinced that was what I wanted.
So, some new and some from my stash... here are some of the colours I had teasing me...
Yesterday I decided upon Lucy's ripple pattern and started a brand new hooky project.
I've only hooked about five rows but I couldn't wait to show you
so here it is....
Surprise! I'm only using three colours.
I've had to pull it apart a couple of times and it's still not perfect but I am fine with it now and happy just to hook away at it.
It is a lovely pattern to work once you get use to it... rhythmic and therapeutic. Lovely :)
Thank you so much Lucy... I owe you a coffee!
I'll show you a progress report when there is something more substantial to see.
Nag me if I don't!
I've been fiddling around with my blog header.  What do you think?
I'm not too sure at the moment so I'll live with it a few days before I make a decision.
Several people have had problems with not being able to leave messages.  I have checked everything and cannot find anything wrong.  Have you had a similar problem with your blog? time to go as Bertie (wee Cairn like dog) wants some attention.

  1. The header looks great. Still no military content though.

    1. Lol! Lovely husband has asked for trains! Xx

  2. Hi Tracey, I think I've found your blog, (I am 'Crochet with Linda Dawn'), I've been playing with my header on and off all week and I think I'm quite happy with it now. I used Picmonkey and also made the same header again to fit my G+ page profile page too.
    Lot's of yarny goodness here, lucky you. The ripple blanket looks pretty so far, I look forward to following your progress with that.
    If I have the correct Tracey I would like to thank you for following my blog and for your lovely comments. If I haven't, hello new friend :-)


  3. Ah, yes it is I :-) Hello new friend! Apologies for the confusion. I tried creating a new Google+ account so I could be more anonymous on blog but it hasn't worked and in the meantime things seemed to have got more confused and I don't know what do about it the moment.
    I shall go check out your header... and picmonkey
    Tracey xx


Thank you so much for leaving a message :-) I love hearing from you and it really does make my day xx
