rippling away



First inspired by Cassi, and then Jane and finally Alicia, of course. I had to start my own ripple blanket right away, after waiting patiently for my copy of the book to arrive.

Little did I know that rippling could be so addictive. You should have warned me, ladies.



Meaning I should've been working on some wholesale orders last night but actually I spent the night working on the blanket instead (and on my pajama bottoms too :). I'm not very good at crochet (it took me ages to finish the first couple of rows) but once you get started there's no stopping.



Even so, I think this is going to take me quite a while. Probably until Spring, most likely. I've been using all bits of colorful yarn I had on my stash, and I choose every row color as I go, so who knows what it will look like at the end. But for now, I'm happy and rippling away.

Está a ficar muito giro. Boa combinação de cores!
Não é nada difícil, para quem sabe o básico de crochet.
Podem ver estes patterns e fazer o ponto com as cores que quiserem:

Hmmm. I've tried unsubscribing and resubscribing several times and I'm still getting a feed error on Bloglines which is preventing it from being updated. Maybe it'll fix itself with time??? One can hope.

Ola,

Estou a dias tentando surfar nessas ondas, mas está tudo muito hostil neste mar que tento criar.
tu não me jogas uma bóia para que eu possa salvar-me?
Olho bem de perto, mas tem ai segredos que se escondem, ajuda-me?
