WIP Wednesday #16

This is more of a 'work being frogged' post.  :(

I was loving my ripple blanket

and had made a tonne of progress, I'd finished this row and started the next (but forgot to take a photo) when I suddenly realised that I didnt have enough wool to do 2 repeats of the pattern I was following in that width. So instead of change the width of the blanket and frog the WHOLE lot, I frogged most of it back to the first 2 rows.

So this is as far as I've got :(

Silly me.

But I love it. I love making it, I love the yarn and I love the pattern.

So slowly slowly for now. Am still working hard on my course work so the ripple blanket is a guilty pleasure.

Pop over to Tamis for more WIPs.


  1. Its beautiful, love your ripple blanket. I am just taking a break because I have had to rip back to the start my knitting, just an inch but arhhh. Saw my mistake will try again tomorrow!

  2. Awfully nice of you to keep me company in the frog pond, but you really didn't have to do that! Lucky for us both, they always go faster the second time around. Stick with it -- it's looking beautiful!

  3. Arrgh, mistake! I do that pretty often myself. The pattern of the blanket is beautiful.

  4. I hate making mistakes, I have unraveled some of my things a fair few times :(

    It is looking very good so far, I like the colour combinations you are using :)

  5. At least crochet is easier to frog than knitting ... not much comfort, I know. :) I love a good ripple blanket. Those colors are great!

  6. Oh, dear. But at least what you have thus far is looking absolutely beautiful!

  7. Hi Nicky, thanks for your email, it was great to hear from you. I'm taking a little blogging break for a week or so, just to give me time to do an e-course around "building a blog I love". I'm possibly going to be making some changes on my blog but Favourite Thing on a Friday will still run. I won't be doing it for the next wee while though, but will be back with it soon and would love to see your photographic fun! Em x

  8. That is fab!! I really want to crochet this year. I can do granny squares but that is as far as it goes!
