I have still been working away at this ripple, I do not need the heating on when I am working on it and now it is keeping my feet warm. The first photograph was the last time I shared it. I am rippling whenever I can and it is highly addictive. To the detriment of housework and other projects! Today I rippled in the car when I was waiting for the school bell to ring for Euan. I am finding it quite tricky to photograph now. I had to chase the dog off it just before I took this update:
Not a very good photograph, I know! I think I like the colours...if I don't think too much about them. The kids still like it and the dog loves it. Today to my horror she was pawing it! I don't usually have to tell her off but she refused to stop pawing it and treading on it while I was trying to work on it, so I had to do a cross 'No!' If she ladders it or puts a whole in it I will be upset! I made Euan a Granny Square blanket when he was five as he had some surgery on his foot and needed a wheelchair, he was thrilled with it and had it on his lap as soon as I gave it to him. Unfortunately he was cutting and sticking craft stuff at the table and promptly snipped a good size hole in it about five minutes after I gave it to him. It got darned and it is still much loved and in regular use.
Also you may remember this post These Granny Square Photographs May Cause Distress! I hope to have more luck with the ripple and I can't wait to be using it on the sofa to watch movies at the weekend. It is definitely a 'snuggle up with Mom blanket'. The dog thinks so anyway.
