life still feels a little in limbo this week, the snow is slowly melting but i have yet to leave the village for days, still this has given us all time to slow down somewhat,
i finished off the ripple blanket, & have to admit it has yet to make it up to little O's cot, it has remained mostly on my lap, keeping me extra snug & warm, she of course is not getting cold as she has her quilt & the receiving blanket her brother was brought home from hospital wrapped in (which was lovingly hand knitted my their Nana, ) she too was wrapped in it on the day of her birth (but she was already at home) so i'm sure she won't mind going without the ripple for a little longer.
after a busy morning entertaining little O (& a little friend of hers) she rewarded me with a long nap before we had to collect her brother, so instead of dragging my snug & cosy self off the sofa, to either a:clean the house or b:spend some time with my neglected sewing machine, i started to use up the yarn scraps from the ripple blanket on a new crochet project,
this barely counts as a new project as it is oh so very little & should be finished by the weekend, as i'm sure little O will agree that dolly Susan would benefit from a snug & warm little blanket, i followed the tutorial from Lucy at attic24 on her summer garden granny square blanket
now i'm off to sew a few of those squares together & sample the cookies that should be just about finished baking in the oven as i type,
i'll be back soon to chat about a little lace-along that kate has organised, which is giving me the perfect excuse to browse through patterns on ravelry
