Another year and another round of resolutions. With the decision to have a year off from study I'm hoping that I'll finish a few more crafty projects this year than last. First up on the "MUST COMPLETE" list is Miss 4's Rainbow Ripple Blanket.
I was lucky enough to have a few days visit with a good friend who lives at the other end of the Island meaning I had a few hours of travelling to use to pass the time away with a bit of crochet (oooooh and a visit to a yarn store ;) )
Here are some pics of our Kiwi roadtrip taken from my phone (and I'm actually quite impressed with the phone's pic taking qualities)...
the kids got sooooo excited about the snow capped mountain thinking it was a giant icecream sundae :)
The Giant Gumboot in Taihape (en route to the wool shop)
The Wool Company pitstop for more yarny supplies (just some bold plain colours for me to add to my rainbow stash).
There is something about this pic that captures everything that is the "great Kiwi Roadtrip"
The blanket is now almost finished after 6 months, it has 17 different colours and is 4 colour repeats long. With each colour row taking 2 hours it has definitely been a labour of love (and thankfully Miss 4 is in love with it). It has 5 colours to go WOOOOHOOO, and then a border, I'm thinking in red as this is the favourite colour of the rainbow girl.
