Crochet trouble?

Do you remember this post?  I thought that there might be a ripple in my plans.


Turns out that there was.


I tried to distract it with a bit of mandala making.



It worked for a little bit.

I have yarn to make a Nordic Shawl, but I am supposed to be finishing my no two the same blanket.  I'm still going on the no two the same, up to 150 squares now and working on the next batch of 30.


But that darned ripple was still in my head and I had the yarn out for my mandala making.


See what happened!


Another blanket on the go now and still no shawl started!

  1. Looks like "startitis" has got you again. But how could you resist? Your ripple looks so neat and pretty. So much prettiness going on here!!

    1. I'm not too bad with the startitis - well, I don't think that I'm too bad!! I am nearly done making squares for my other blanket and then putting them together won't be too bad and I do keep doing them a little bit at a time on each! It is hard not to start new things though isn't it!! xx

  2. That bag of yarn looks so pretty and full. How can you resist? Of course you have to sit down and crochet a blanket. Sometimes i have a hard time deciding what to work on next. So many choices...

  3. Ha ha, I want to make a ripple blanket next after I finish stitching my little granny squares together. Might have to make a small Stylecraft purchase to do it though :), yours is looking lovely. xx

  5. What a lovely 'trouble' :) All projects are so gorgeous, loving the ripple blanket! I think it's perfectly acceptable to have two blankets on the go - double the lovely outcome :) Good luck with them both xx

  7. Loving the colours of all that beautiful yarn. The ripple blanket is gorgeous and the no two the same blanket is divine. I very often have more than one project on the go, more than three and its difficult to stay focused.

    1. I do try and keep to one, possibly two as otherwise I find it is too much, however, I fear that shawl may start soon!! xx

  12. Ooh, very nice! I like the look of the ripple a lot. I think it's good to have a few WIPs on the go at once, stops you getting bored. That's my excuse anyway... x

  13. Such a beautiful ripple, it had to come out! Sometimes it's just best to give in to your inner muse.

  14. It happens, just go with the flow Amy who can ever resist making a ripple, it's going to be lovely and don't worry you will get to that shawl. :)

  15. That made me smile - when I got home from my sisters earlier today (having made a trip in person to the Wool warehouse) I did wonder if I should count up the WIPs and recently finished little bits - Easter bunnies and a pot holder - but decided it would be a bit scary.
    Hope you are having a good week. x

  19. Sometimes having a few projects on the go, is a "Good Thing".....
    It can get boring working on the same thing...
    Especially if it is a big project....
    Keep going....you are doing awesome!
    Cheers!
    Linda :o)

  25. It's so easy to start new projects, there's so many thing we all want to make. I've got two crochet blankets on the go, a pair of knitted socks and of course my little Big Knit hats.

  27. The ripple is lovely, very attractive colours, and your crotchet so even and perfect. Today I started a little granny square, after not doing any crotchet for about 30 years. I remembered what to do!

  34. Loving the colours in your ripple blanket. One of these days I'd like to make one myself though the cost of all the yarn puts me off. I really like your mandalas too - I'm just finishing off mine to join in with Chrissie's mandalong. x

    1. I am nervous about spending a lot on yarn I have to say, and that is why the Stylecraft makes an appearance - the price! It is good for blankets though as it is hardwearing and works up well and you can make something nice and big for not too much cost. I think that I will save expensive yarns for smaller things! I look forward to seeing your Mandalas when they are done! xx
