Now this is pretty plain for me, I'm wondering how to inject some 'teenager boyish colour' to it - suggestions welcome! I'm still not sure if I'm stitching the ripple right but ohhh I'm having some fun trying! I am loving climbing up and down these mini hills, although it requires a little more concentration than the other blanket I'm about to share with you....
Now that's more like it! I started this after moving into my current property, purely to get my colour fix. I wanted bold giddiness inducing stripes and that's what I got. However...remember me mentioning that perhaps I hadn't got to grip with all the stitches? Well this loveliness is an example because this (now don't you laugh) is supposed to be a vintage stripe blanket as seen on Bella Dia's blog. However me being a novice took double stitch to mean the UK's double stitch not a treble (which I think it should be?). But oh well, you live and learn. I am considering restarting it but I kind of like the thickness of it. I have family in Bournemouth and I can just imagine taking this baby down to picnic on the beach with or perhaps I'll drape it over the decrepit armchair that needs to be recovered in my bedroom. I haven't decided yet but I do know I like it.
Anyway I hope anyone who does stumble along my little blog enjoyed my little show and tell. I shall try and dig out my camera to share more pictures of things I love. I should probably take some pictures of the house as a 'before and after' whilst I make my stamp on it.
Have a wonderful Monday!
