Happy weekend everyone, I do hope you've had a good week thus far. Today's weather report I'm pleased to say includes lots of sunshine. Much needed after the soggy grey day we had yesterday!
I want to thank you for all the comments on my last post. I'm still trying to navigate my way around this new computer of mine. Despite it being so much quicker than my old one, surprisingly I'm finding it difficult to adapt.
I managed to safely retrieve all my data from the old pc, with the help of the tech guys at PC World. There was a point when I thought I'd lost everything as I'd failed to back up my files. I know I know, stupid of me. I feel a bit of a twit really as my father kept warning me of the dangers of not keeping things up to date. But you know how it is, you put it off thinking I'll do it later. Only later never comes, and you end up facing the consequences. Lesson learned.
One thing I have had fun doing is sorting through all my old photo albums, revisiting projects I had worked on pre-blogging. Projects that I haven't really spoken about here or shown you in any great detail. So I thought it might be nice to dedicate a few posts to some of the colourful crochet that I completed before deciding to embark on this blogging journey.
As per usual Attic24, and the very lovely Lucy was my go to for inspiration. I know her neat ripple pattern is a firm favourite with lots of you, and I was no exception. I couldn't wait to try my hand at her very generous free pattern. So I picked up my 3.5mm hook and got to work making oodles of gorgeous colourful waves with my stash of Schachenmayr Catania.
I really enjoyed the gentle ebb & flow of this simplistic pattern. Once you get going it really is a lovely project to pick up and put down when the mood takes you. The rainbow palette was a no brainer for me, as I knew it would keep my interest being so bright and cheery.
I couldn't wait to add each new row, anxious to see the picture I'd built in my mind slowly emerge in all it's multi-coloured glory. Well I can tell you it didn't disappoint. I could've happily rippled away forever!
Looking back has given me a renewed thirst to do another ripple. Maybe something like this! A gorgeous colour scheme, don't you think? Hmmm, I see a new yarn purchase in my future...........
