wip it wednesday

i haven't tried a ripple stitch for awhile and this particular design reminds me of a cappuccino with the coffee color on bottom followed by the cream and then the 'whipped cream'....ripple stitch throws and afghans are challenging because i have to remember where i am in the pattern ;) there are increases and decreases and as long as i know where i am- i won't get an up where there's supposed to be a down :) cappuccino.....

featured 'for sale'

this particular throw was among the first designs i picked to try when i took up crochet again full time...i am intrigued by taking quilt patterns and turning them into yarn projects...this particular pattern is based on an ohio star quilt block and i was happy with the way it turned easily fits on a double bed and can be used as a topper on a queen...the colors blend easily into any country, cottage, or even shabby chic style...take a peek below at the shop to grab this lovely afghan before it's snapped up!

wip it wednesday

i usually have multiple projects going at once... i get bored doing the same stitch over and over...whichever way my mood takes me determines which project i pick up...the project i am highlighting today will eventually turn out to be a throw or afghan (depending on the end size) and i am enjoying the colors- primary red, yellow, green and orange with a background of retro brown :) and the piece de resistance will be tassels... i have never done tassels on a project...
