The ripple is nearing completion. I'm still ruminating about the border..... I would like to bring the red of the main blanket back in with a small border and a picot at the tip of each scallop. Then I think I am done. Goes well with my cushions too!

Still crocheting 11 balls of yarn down, 9 to go and then I need to edge it :)

Look what I made!  - 
 
Blocking this beast on the dining room table.....it's a throw/pashmina in pure soft green Peruvian alpaca from "Miski", shade 112 dye lot 03366

For the life of me I cannot seem to get the camera to capture its wonderful colour. The one with the white envelope is probably the closest to the colour

The lucky recipient is my sis who celebrates her 50th on Saturday :)

+Brad Fitzpatrick thank you so much, your lovely comment gave me the same warm glow I got when I finished each of those paintings :)

Thanks for the invite. Knitter and crocheter here.....I create for pleasure and am committed to using natural fibres preferably sourced locally if I can. I love bold bright colours. My photo is of my couch complete with ripple blanket using Noro and a selection of my knitted and crocheted cushions. My biggest pleasure is giving my good friends and family members handmade items as gifts. I'm a big fan of Ravelry also.

It most certainly is the Attic ripple! I love her blog and particularly her tutorials they are so easy to follow. I will be adding a pale lime to the border also and perhaps some more of the red just to tie it all together :)

What I'm working on now  - 
 
Finally getting around to completing my daughter's blanket which I promised her .....ahem.....two years ago. It's pure cotton in bright turquoise, lime, hot pink and mustard yellow (the quality of my pics are not great). Hopefully it will be gorgeous by the time it's finished and she will treasure it for years to come!

Blocking it should be fun.....!

Thank you - my daughter will probably have to wrestle me for it as I've grown very attached to it. It's very soft and the colours are happy ones :)

Introduce Yourself  - 
 
Hi my name is Lucy. I've been creating since I can't remember and am completely self taught. Currently investigating the world of printmaking and really enjoying the process. This is one of my works called "and the world turns". I did this print in the lead up to 21st December 2012 and it was loosely based on the images I had seen of the Mayan 13th baktun. I would like to think our world has more to it than meets the eye and there is still mystery and strangeness out there that we have yet to tap into.

I create purely for pleasure and am not that fussed about going commercial. I love looking at other artists' work so I'm sure I will enjoy this community.

Fascinating! I have never done any printmaking. I really know nothing about it! Your process is a mystery to me =P but I love it!
