Yes this means I have started my ripple blanket. Quite a rocky start to my ripple! kept making teeny tiny mistakes but not noticing them until well into the next row. And while ripping out crochet is far easier than ripping out knitting, only ever one stitch on the hook, it is every bit as disheartening to see rows of 200+ stitches coming undone. Finally got into the swing of 4 x 4 repeat pattern and am starting to enjoy the project.

So this also means that I have finished my Shalom. I'm rather pleased with it!! the only thing is the arm holes, they sort of feel too big...

I'm still searching for the perfect yarn for my next knitting project, which will have to remain "hush-hush" for the moment as it is a birthday present for someone, so I have decided to make a patchwork pocket for my 'newish' telephone. I'm determined to learn to sew this year and this seems like a nice small thing for a beginner.
Reading a chess for children book with Rémi at present. We are both absolute beginners, but we are now getting into games that last two, one hour sittings!
