Help I'm a Ripple Addict

I've started another ripple. This one is for our living room. I'm using Red Heart super savers in gold, carrot, buff, claret,& med. thyme, with an I hook. I'm using Lucy's pattern. & it's 11 chevrons across.

My First Lucy Bag

I've mentioned the lovely Lucy of Attic24 before, for her wristie, snowflake, hexagon & ripple patterns. She also has a great pattern for a crochet bag. I changed a few things but used hers as a starting place. Her bag is here.

I used Suger & cream cotton, & a G hook. The whole bag is done in hdc, even the straps(3 rows each). I hope to line it soon. Here are my pics of the process.

Getting started.

Almost done with the bottom.

Almost there.

All done.

Here it is fulfilling it's purpose.

With just a little peak of my latest ripple. I'll try to post some progress pics of that soon.

MIL's Cro-hook Afghan

I love cro-hooking . So very relaxing for me. And the blankies are so warm & snuggly. The link to the tutorial is in my sidebar, under Crochet 101 links.

I made this one for my MIL's b-day. I'm a little late.(it was in feb.) sigh.

I love how these blankies are double sided.

Finished & showing off my new hamock, hubby got for me.

The trim is just a simple shell stitch.
