Do you remember a while back I was going to start making some crochet Granny squares? I did make a start and made quite a few,then whilst looking around blogs and websites over the weekend I came across a Granny Ripple blanket that I sooo wanted to have a go at. Well after locating and prnting out various patterns for said blanket,I was not doing very well as I couldn't get the'zig zag' pattern right. It's all about calculating the right amount of multiples of stitches to get the 'valleys and peaks ' right. Anyway after trying and trying I managed to find a brilliant tutorial on Youtube which was so much easier to follow, so after one evening I'd managed the blue starter rows and last night I was on a roll. Sat there with my crochet hook,laptop and earphones on and I was off ! Think I might have to make another one now to make it big enough to snuggle under on the sofa but at least it's the right shape !
