Well, not much done this week in terms of anything to show you guys, but there has been some work in the background that shall bear fruit very soon.
Instead this week has seen a lot of this
and lots of this
and some messing about on the river with friends…
We spent the day in a gorgeous little place called Hampton Loade, not too far away and splashed the whole sunny day away!
I so nearly completed the Happy ripple… honest I did, just gotta weave those ends in! I cant wait to show you… It’s such a playful blanket and has the most amazing edging on it, that was so much fun to hook. I have learnt a new technique with this edging and am putting a tutorial together for it, because I think I need to share the joy I had hooking it with you all… so watch this space, I will pull it together over the next few days! So for now I will leave you with a picture of my al fresco crochet corner…
and the yummy alpaca yarn that I have for my next project… a summer scarf

The Happy ripple is really gorgeous cant wait to see it all. This past week has been hot and it’s nice to take advantage of it. I find behind the scenes stuff often take as long as working on actual projects.
I love the alfresco crochet corner. Can’t wait to see the ripple blanket in its full glory!
Everyone deserves a nice relaxing break now and then! Glad you had an enjoyable time!
What a lovely break. Glad you enjoyed yourself!
Looks like you had a great time regardless of the lack of hooking! That alpaca is calling you!
Terrific peek at this ripple. Love your niche for hooking.
Now that I’ve read your blog I think my retirement goal is a year-round al fresco knitting patio! Looks heavenly. And it looks like the whole family had fun too!
