well, once the gorgeous Granny Stripe was finished and I had done
my oooohs and arrrhhhhs,
something had to happen!
So, looking into my left over Christmas present bag of yarn I decided to try
Lucy’s ripple. I had tried this ages ago but for some reason it just didn’t seem to
work out, but looking at so many other bloggers blankets I thought “It must
be ME! So lets have another go!”
I am so glad I did, even though I have run out of Lucy’s hot colours,
I think it will be rather nice when it is further under way.
Just before starting the ripple I used some of the yarn in a pram blanket, it is not
very big …. but prams aren’t very big these days!
I decided to do Nana squares from Michelle at The Royal Sisters blog
it may be small, but very satisfying to do :0)
and I’m sure it will be just about the right size for today’s small prams,
not like the Rolls Royce that my babes were in …..
“It’s quite simply the Rolls Royce of prams, Balmoral is the original coach-built pram.
Hand-sprung chassis,cushioned with leather suspension straps and handspoked wheels are just a few features of the Balmoral Collection. Handmade in the UK.”
Yep, they just don’t make them like that any more!
Well, actually they do, but I couldn’t
afford the price tag …. mine had been second hand anyway!
Good to know that they are still making them though ….
Enjoy your happy crafty days (or evenings!)

I have just come back from town and guess what?
My beautiful Silver Cross Rolls Royce
has just been show cased ……
I don’t suppose it is mine – just one like it :0)
Time moves on!
