Waving goodbye to the ripple!

Since I started this blog I have been inspired to try a few different crafts, and one of my favourites has to be crochet. For the last few months I have been working on a ripple cushion for DD's room. I can't believe that I started it back in February! At first it went very slowly, but as my fingers found their rhythm the ripple pattern gradually took shape, albeit with a lot of unravelling.

As I became a little more confident I have taken my crochet out and about with me. A large part of motherhood seems to involve waiting around for assorted offspring, so I have taken up crocheting at the swimming pool and at DS's music centre. In fact, there were three of us yarnaholics at last week's music session! I have finally finished the ripple section; now all I need to do is finish it off. I hope this doesn't take three months!

  3. Thank you very much for the positive comments! Dorothy, much as I would like to take credit for it, DD chose the colours. I have nearly finished edging one of the sides, so there is hope!
