Friday Night With Friends Results….

Friday night saw me working on a couple of my crochet projects….

I went from two piles of pretty cherry ripe dots to…..

Four piles, ten dots per pile so that makes forty done and another forty one to work on and then I can start putting this baby blanket together. I also found myself working on adding a few more rows to this project I started in early August……..

After sorting through my wool baskets I found I had quite a few odd balls as well as odd 100gm balls leftover from other projects so now they’re all contained in one basket and from this basket I started making this rainbow ripple ( above ) and I’m planning to use the leftovers from this blankets to make a rainbow dot blanket next. Below is an updated picture of the six nearly seven rows completed last night, I love how soothing a ripple is to work on……Today saw me finally knuckling down and sewing in those pesky ends before they became too numerous Smile

Once these blankets are finished they will be going into my gift basket which is rapidly filling up with baby blankets  lol….. I’ll be doing a bit of blog hopping tomorrow to see what everyone else was working on and if you’d like to do this as well why not pop over to our lovely leader Cheryl's blog to peruse all the lovely blogs of the other participants at your leisure over the weekend Smile
