So many FO's today but alas it's not Friday so no photos of them! I will have a harder time waiting for Friday than you do. Trust me, I can't buy presents until the day before, cause I can't keep them.
So I got to thinking about the blanket that needs to accomany the clothing items I have made for baby (not mine) and I thought I would get out one of my amazing Harmony guides and see what grabs my fancy. So I am in a ripple kinda mood and I found one called peephole ripple. Its lacy and loose, which is perfect also calls for a multiple of 10 chains plus 2.
So I chained 102 with my size 6.00mm hook (as I chain quite tight) I changed to a size 5.00mm and started, I have to admit I fudged the first row, I know can you believe it!! The first row. Anyway after redoing it, I started the second using the chart not the instructions, needless to say I fudged it again! So after looking at the amazing photo and looking at the written instructions I nailed it!
What you can't see in my picture is the yarn I am using. It is Stylecraft Wondersoft Baby DK in a white with lilac, dark blue and light blue fleck. It's called Jack Horner. I had it in my stash, but when I got it out I discovered that I have two balls in one dye lot and another in a different and the third one is more blue than white! So I have done 10 rows of the peephole and will see how many I get out of one ball. Iam hoping that I don't need the third one.
I did the 10 rows while watching the Springboks beat the All Blacks. The boys are back in town. Well done Springboks we as a nation are behind you 100% for the Rugby World Cup starting on the 9th of September. Can't wait.
