ripple along

Much against my better judgement, I've joined in with a ripple along (got enough wips to last me a lifetime)

It is being hosted by Attic24 & Little Tin Bird Ripple-along over on flickr,
fortunately you don't have any time limits and just to post photos, there's some great ripples over there,

I haven't attempted a large blanket before, wanted to get a feel for the stitches first, hence my dilemma, do I go for ripple no1 or ripple no2
what do you think ?

Ripple no1 is Tr3 tog  and ripple no2 is Tr2 tog
Ripple no1 is from  here  ripple no2 is from here

Both are great crochet related blogs well worth a visit

And here is a ta ta drumroll moment, it is finally finished

my giant pinwheel cushion, which has been on the go for ages and these photos does make it look giant
I decided to put a button in the middle and give it a bit of shape,
all in all i'm very pleased with how it has turned out .
I also like the colour, the variegated yarn with a block border (which was my hubbys idea)

I've wanted to make these for a while now, and the opportunity came up when a friend got married. I loved doing these, and my Daughter has asked me if I would make another for my grandson's teacher, so my wip no 34


  1. I am truly addicted. I recognized both of those patterns before I looked to see who created them. I am doing Lucy's, but I saw Sucrette's a couple of days ago and really liked it. I vote for Sucrette's, everyone is doing Lucy's so it would be a bit different. I like your colors too. Have fun. 34 wip's makes me feel better. I only have 4 right now. # are blankets though.

  2. How adorable are those bunnies, so sweet, I love them.

  3. Hi Joan, I thought of you when I saw this on my blogger buddy Heather's site ..........

  4. always i used to read smaller articles which also clear their
    motive, and that is also happening with this piece
    of writing which I am reading at this place.

    Look at my website - Kris Letang Black Jersey

  5. Howdy would you mind stating which blog platform you're using? I'm looking to start my own blog soon but I'm having a tough time choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most blogs and I'm looking
    for something unique. P.S Sorry for being off-topic but I had to ask!

  7. I almost never comment, but I looked at a few of the
    remarks here "ripple along". I actually do have 2 questions for
    you if you don't mind. Could it be just me or does it appear like some of the remarks appear like they are written by brain dead folks? :-P And, if you are writing on additional places, I'd like to follow anything fresh you have
    to post. Would you list of the complete urls of your social pages
    like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?
