my blanket is still growing ...slowly.

My ripple blanket is growing slowly.    I have now done 76 rows . It will be a single bed size i think.  I like a blanket to be longer than it covers your toes!
76 rows done!
I went to spotlite on tuesday afternoon and was looking through the bargin bins and found a lovely book with about 6 nice versions of other ripple I bought it home with me..only $3.00 . There  is a couple in the book that i might have ago at in the future.....when i get time that is. here is a pic of my blanket so far. (I took this pic in a hurry  so it is not great  ,sorry) I will try one in the daylight , this is a bit dark.

My pajero died , again.! The turbo blew it's guts!  I had no truck for a week but I got to drive my other half's car he just bought recently. It is so quiet compared to mine as mine is old, and rattly !  I recon we should swap.... I really liked it. It runs totally on LPG petrol  so much cheaper and even better his boss payed for it.  I am on the third turbo at the moment!  this is also the 4th  or 5th windscreen too!  I have lost count.  I have never known a vehicle to go through so many windscreens!!   It seems to chip really easily!  This time we might sell it as soon as he fixes his oil leak in his ute.  His new car is a falcon station wagon.  They were going to wreck it for parts where he works (automotive dismantler)  for 'ford'  parts. It has  had a bump in the bumper and a wee dent near the front, but runs really well.


  1. Your ripple blanket is looking great - it's another project I am tempted to make - sigh-maybe I should say,YET another project!! happy stitching!

  2. What a great ripple, now that mine is done I do miss my evenings of hooking along in front of the TV. I'd love to see more pics!
