What's Doing Wednesday


Finally, finally, finally finished my twin round ripples.  Just last night.  This is one of my favorite patterns and usually I can do this in a few days.  These took  longer for some reason.  Thinking maybe got a little bored with the same color, although the last few rows I thoroughly enjoyed (knowing I would be done). 



Now to get them ready for their long distance run and to the awaiting first time mom and dad.  Blessings to the new little arrivals.

Have started the doily~ghan.  You knew I couldn't wait!  I did use the pink and white from my stash and the pink is a much lighter, baby pink but its a good thing to use what is on hand when I can.   Didn't have the shade of green though, so did have to pick that up.


What's doing in your neck of the woods?

  1. Those turned out so gorgeous Glor! I love those round ripples, I made one awhile back and really enjoyed it... need to do another one! I am making some hats right now, have trouble with them sometimes as they often come out way too big!

  2. Those ripples are very pretty. I am excited you have started on the doily-ghan. I am ready to start row 19. I am going to have to get another skein of pink. I don't have green and don't think I will buy a skein only for the trim on the doily-ghan. I think I will just do the trim in pink. I am looking forward to changing to white on my doily-ghan to see the contrast. I do love this pattern, so easy. Keep us updated on the doily-ghan, can't wait to see it. Have a wonderful day!

  6. Oh dear, my queue is so large already, and you just keep tempting me to add more! The ripples are beautiful, and I can't wait to see your progress on the doily-ghan. I'm working on the big granny baby blanket, the final piece of my Angel Baby set. I am bound and determined to finish it today!

  15. Would you do me a HUGE favor and look at my round ripple over at http://yarnoveronce.blogspot.com/2011/03/gifts-for-baby.html I am trying to figure out what I did wrong! I used the same pattern from Lyn and my blanket bunched up in the center and curled up on the edges. I'm thinking that perhaps instead of alternating the small-v for 2 rounds with the large-v for 2 rounds that maybe I should have stuck with repeating the large v for all rounds after row 9? Or perhaps you could tell me how many stitches are in one segment between v's on your rows, like row 15 has 14 dc in a segment while row 30 has 19, for example? Any help would be greatly appreciate as I REALLY want to try another blanket for my cousin's baby a.s.a.p. I do understand if you are too busy right now, though, as you have your own projects. THANKS so MUCH!
