Another Tuesday, another update for the One a Day project.

For me it’s been a really productive week. I was able to block my Northern Lights shawl, my ripple blanket is now up to the 10th colour change (!!), and not only did we manage to finish decorating our daughter’s bedroom but she has moved all her belongings back into it, and I still had time to give the bathroom a thoroughly good clean, and boy did it need it! 4 children, need I say any more!

I’m still really enjoying the ripple blanket. The Stylecraft colours are fab, and all seem to work together well. I always feel a tad uncertain when I first join in the next colour but then somehow it just seems right. I’m using the colour scheme for Lucy’s granny stripe blanket that is listed in the We Love Lucy II group on Facebook. I just love it’s rainbow gorgeousness!

So, photos…

I picked up a stack of boxes in B and Q this week on special offer – I just couldn’t resist, as I could see how useful they would be!!



I joined the 10th colour last night!

And just for you to see, my Northern Lights shawl in all its glory. It’s now wrapped and ready to be delivered later this week.

So, that’s it for me. Off now for a little more rippling before the school run, but that’s after I’ve checked out a few more of Tuesday’s Tallies on Gingerbread Girl’s blog xx
