Welcome to Wool on Sundays!
I’m sorry I didn’t manage to put up a Wool on Sundays post last week. We went away for my daughter’s graduation (you can see some photos in my (Summer in Colour post) and I somehow managed to delete my post.
Of course, I needed a portable project! After some hurried googling and pinteresting I decided on some ‘Rustic Lace’ blocks. My main inspiration was the picture you can see here but if you search for ‘Rustic Lace Crochet’ you will find a huge variety of these blocks and lots of patterns and charts. It seems no one knows who first created the block but I can understand why it’s so popular. I’m using up scraps from my last ‘portable project’ – the no longer very portable Ripple Blanket.
And, lest you should think I’m starting something new without finishing that (we won’t mention some other WIPs!), here are a couple of photos of the finished Ripple!
I finished it before we went away but it was so dark and rainy I couldn’t take any photos that didn’t look really grim. Tomorrow, we are are going away again for four days and I have much to do so I I’ll aim for a proper Tada post next week :)
Have you had time for any yarn making this week?
If so, I’d love you to link up. The rules, as usual, are: 1). Posts must include some content – makes or musings or photos – related to knitting, crochet, felting, spinning or yarn. 2). Projects sewn from felt or wool fabric or stitchery using wool are also welcome but please don’t link posts that are exclusively about sewing, quilting and fabrics. 3). Posts don’t have to be from the past week but please put a link to WOOL ON SUNDAYS or grab the button from my sidebar and include it in or at the bottom of any posts you link up. 4). MOST IMPORTANT visit anyone else who links.

Your travelling Rustic Lace blocks are so pretty. Love those pastel hues. Your Ripple blanket is a sight to behold…as is that lovely wrought iron bed. Can’t wait to see your tada post.
Those are so pretty displayed there
Ripple is AWESOME … and those lacey blocks are soooooooooo pretty – how big are you making the blocks, and do you have a specific project in mind for them?
The new squares are absolutely gorgeous, Janine. Looking forward to the ta dah reveal of your ripple blanket soon.
