When you don't know when to stop!

How's your rippling going?
Mine's going swimmingly!
One of the most joyous projects ever!
I'm loving it so much, just one question, when is it big enough?
At the moment it's plenty big enough for one, plus cat.
Should I go on and make it a blanket for two?

It just keeps growing! by Sue Webb ♥

Friends I already know the answer 
looking at the loveliness spread over my sofa this morning,
it has to grow.
I think four pattern repeats should do it!
Now just have to deal with those pesky ends!


  1. pesky ends indeed!! you've got plenty there! and man-o-man is that one gorgeous ripple. i don't ripple but sure wish i did. xx

  2. You can never have too many ripples! Especially not when they're as pretty as these.

    Oh and have you tried weaving in the ends as you go? Simply crochet over them at the start. It's really easy. :-)

  3. Thanks for the tip Carina, I do normally do that but in my enthusiasm I guess I just forgot all about it! What a twit I am LOL.

  4. Good choice! Less is rarely more! Big is beautiful :)

A beautiful day here in Portsmouth. A hint of Spring in the air and the first outdoor spinning of the year.

It felt good to be outside listening to the birds and soaking up the warm sunshine on the deck.

The cats thought so too! Ghetto having a stretch.

Lord Howard(as he is now known!) relaxing! After an hour sitting in the sunshine it was on with my walking boots and off to the sea.

First stop Milton Common, the sky full of Brent Geese chattering as they flew overhead.

The Solent was particularly sparkly today.

The Hard in Old Portsmouth looked higgledy piggledy and colourful.

Then a final treat as I wandered home, a glorious sunset. A day to lift the spirits and make me glad to be alive! Hope you've all enjoyed a wonderful weekend too. Love ♥Sue♥

Back in the zone

Hello So it's been a while but I think it's safe to say that I'm back in the zone! The spinning wheel is out and I'm loving it. Loving the calm rhythmic movement of fibre flowing through my fingers, watching the bobbins fill with gorgeous colour, enjoying the meditative process that spinning is. I've been spinning some beautiful Alpaca and silk that I dyed AGES ago. It's very soft and fluffy but spins up really well wanting to be thin and sophisticated.

I've also been admiring this beauty, I know a rainbow landed on the rug! It's Milk Fibre, it take dye amazingly well, it's incredibly fine and slippery. I tried spinning it 'neat' but it proved impossible so I'm carding it with Merino.

What do you think?

I'm really pleased, I'm a carding newbie but again it's a wonderful process which I find completely absorbing.

I'm planning on carding each rainbow colour separately I'll let you know how it goes.
So how are you all? Hopefully f…
