Tally Tuesday

I'm proud to say I have 3 FO's to report!

Here's the crocheted ripple blanket/afghan/laprobe.
I used an I crochet hook and stash yarn. It measures 42" x 42"



These ripple blankets are so addictive that I've started another one with some really bright colors.


Now for knitting

The sunburst star blanket is done! Not too happy with my color arrangement but it's a nice 43" across size. Good for a baby or a lapghan or even folded in half as a shawl.
I started out with garter stitch as the pattern suggests, but worked rows of stockinette with some garter stitch ridges every few rows.
I think I had about 450-500 stitches all on that 60" circular with room for more if I had wanted to make it bigger.
I'd love to try another one, but perhaps I had better wait until the fall and cooler temps. No use starting something that will be tossed aside as the weather warms. We are expecting 80's temps this week. Besides, I've started working on the Curve of Pursuit and want to finish it!





Finally those little teeny socks are done! Socks are so easy, but I do not like knitting with such fine yarn. I still have enough of this Lion Brand Magic Stripes for another pair - someday soon.

Marilyn, that knitted sunburst is fabulous! Personally, I like the colors a lot, and am amazed at how quickly you got this finished. Great work, thanks for sharing the photos.

Way to go!!! Both blankets are lovely. I'd have tried the Starburst too, but our Library doesn't have the book. Pitty, I love it, even if you don't like your color choices. I'm so looking forward to the Curve of Pursuit Blanket! ;o)
