One A Day Update

Hello lovelies, I hope you've all had a productive week and your all getting on well with your projects.  I'll be coming to have a nosey later on.  I want to say a big thank you for all your lovely and encouraging comments so far.  I've not really got any like minded friends, so it's nice to be part of this online community to gee me along. 

I'm still making steady progress and have managed to get the seven blocks and stripes done on both blankets despite feeling a bit rough after catching the obligatory September School Cold that Bella Bee kindly bought home from school.  Lets get straight to the money shots.

The Bella Bee Ripple Blanket


A gorgeous sea of ripples.


And the Summer Garden Granny Blanket



Now, I must dash, I'm currently inhabiting an anti house that requires an inhuman amount of work to make it an actual house again. 

Feel free to check out the other projects at Gingerbread Girl.

Peace Out x

Wow, you must have been working hard. I to am tackling an anti - house today. It doesn't feel so bad when the sun is shining though does it?

I love, love, love the ripple. I too find a great sense of community from fellow crocheters and knitters online, no one else gets my blanket fetish for a start!

Good job keeping up with both! We've had the Sept school cold as well and DS is on round 2 already. Fun times! Hope you feel better soon xx

I love how the squares look like little flowers! The green in each really pulls them all together. Good job so far!

Rainy Day Crafter said...

Your blankets are both coming along fantastically, and I have to say that your ripple is definitely one of my favourite one a day projects! :) Hope you're feeling better soon!

Both are simply gorgeous! I agree with Rainy Day Crafter, the ripple is one of my favourites too.

I'm working on 2 One-a-Days too...variety IS the spice of life...I love both of your blankets :)x

Nicky @ PickAStitchCafe said...

Impressive! Love the colors...just a lovely palette.

Deanne said...

Still loving both of your blankets! Know what you mean about the friends. None of mine even know that I blog. They know I crochet for charity and that if anyone is having a baby they'll get a blanket from me, but that's about it.

Tickety-boo said...

Now that's multi-tasking having two blankets on the go! Both looking good :)

Love both your blankets. The ripples take time but they are so worth it, the effect is beautiful. None of my friends do any craft either and think i'm nuts when i start talking about yarn, its great to be able to chat with like minded people. Can't wait to see next weeks progress. Happy crocheting :)

Casey said...
