- I'm a lover of vintage times and simple elegance of another era. I'm waiting a while for my special little farmhouse. While I'm waiting, I'm making good use of my time creating lovlies with my crochet hook n thread or yarn, and baking and cooking from scratch for my family.

Take your needle my child and
work at your pattern it will come out a
rose by and by. Life is like that...one
stitch at a time taken patiently.

Making a go at moving my hook...
I'll get there sooner or later...this is an easy going project which will be completed well in time for when we might actually need it.. Using stash yarn, but anticipate having to procure some more, as the yarn stash is dwindling. I have lots of thread, not so much yarn. I decided to make this in wider strips, not so much joining row to row and it reduces the risk of unraveling, which is what happened to the first one I made.
I neglected to tell you the name of the pattern... I suppose that you can google it
The granny Ripple, I've misplaced my pattern, once you get past the 3rd row
you work the pattern until the end.
