I'm finally back to posting on my blog again!
Every time I forgot to take some photo's that I wanted to post...

This photo shows the wonderful swap I received from Stella. She send me the most beautiful things.I wanted to make a photo of the things that I send her, but I completely forgot.......



A while ago I noticed these lovely ripple blankets on some blogs. They looked so lovely that I wanted to make one too. I looked at my yarn stash and found some great colours.Some yarns are left over from sweaters I made for my kids when they where very young. Working on this ripple blanket is like a walk on memory lane for me Ü.
When I started with this ripple blanket I joined the ripple-along where lots of people making beautiful ripple blankets : http://neisripplealong.blogspot.com/

This is how my ripple blanket looked like 10 days ago.

And here it is 2 days ago. First I wasn't very happy with the colours but as I was rippling along I began to like it.

Oh, you are very skilled in knitting! Well done!

Unfortunately, my knitting skills are very poor but I succeeded in finishing my first pair of socks this winter.

Your blanket looks great! I think the colours are lovely together. And the pattern are so nice, like a wave at the sea.

Hallo Monique,

Een golfdekentje, dat kende ik nog niet. Erg leuk om te zien en heel netjes gedaan.

Hoe staat je tuintje er bij?

groetjes,
