Ok, I'm back! Let's see if I can do this pic thing right, lol! I can't believe I'm showing you folks this ghan! It has to be one of my worst works, but I know that a lot of us are having trouble with frilling and such, and I was amazed at how much better mine looked (to me anyway, lol) after being washed. Hope it helps some of you feel better about yours! I think I'm going to stick with Aggie May's simple round ripples for a while! :hook

Oh, if I did this right the pics should be clickable! LOL! (finally!)

Thanks for all your kind words everyone! I am pretty happy with the overall results. It ended up being about 76 inched pt to pt, which is fine for my queen size bed. I think I'll try the Aztec Sun pattern next time, but for now I have too many other WIPs I need to get done. I like projects that only take a few hours, lol! I'm going to keep checking in on you though! :cheer

I think this came out very pretty. If you want to see ruffling, you should see mine! I wanted to post the picture but I can't seem to get it to work :(

 

You mentioned trying Aggie Mays next time or maybe the Aztec Sun...which pattern did you use for this one? I like how the new points look on your afghan. I don't like how mine look at all.

Number three is just about finished, will post piccys of them all together when the batteries for the camera are recharged. By the time I had started on the third I had got the rippling under control, after each row I lay down the blanket and can see where the rippling is occuring, sometimes I will pull back but most times I fudge it by either skipping four stitches for a row or dropping down to a couple of rows of 1Dc, 1C, 1DC at the points. Every other row I count up the stitches on the sides of the points to make sure they are all the same, a few times I have found a couple of extra stitches on odd points and thats throws things out. I know it is time-consumiong doing that but it saves on all that frogging, I reckon with all the frogging I did on the first and second blanket I should be on the 5th not 3rd. I also went up a hook size as well on the third one and that seems to have eased the rippling.

I am finally done with the blanket that I was making for a friend's mom for Mothers Day! Yeah...:cheer Now I can come back and finish my RR' s. My son told me that I should really work on one thing at a time, so I won't get frustrated! The wisdom of a 10 year old! I'll post a picture of it when I get them downloaded!

It's a foot pocket blanket

Sorry for the confusion! Actually I used the pattern listed on the first post of this CAL which is Aggie Mays and I believe the points addition is Sue's notes, not quite sure about that one, but it's how I interpreted it anyway, lol! What I meant earlier was that I'm going to stick to simple rr's for a while! I have Aggie May's 12 pt rr that is just so easy and NO additional points!!!! I just need a break for a little bit, :lol

Thanks for all the tips Jan! I'll have to remember that on my next one. I found that I had to go done a hook size to even stay on track with this one! :think I started out with an I hook and ended up with an H. Guess I did things backwards :lol. Thanks for the compliments.:hug

Ann,

It was a very easy pattern from Lion Brand.

 

The foot pocket, all I did was take 14 inches and folded it over and added the border. Here's the links to the blanket and the border. I used a "P" hook instead of "Q", make sure you chain at least 107 for an adult...I made the mistake of not adding enough and had to add stitches to the width. It's very warm and very cuddly. I hate to give it away, but she was willing to pay!!

Hi all :)

 

It has been a while since I posted anything on this CAL since my last RR...but I have started my six pointed star. WOW...it is time consuming....definitely not for those who despise weaving in the ends. I have read that AA is re-stitching and reissuing the pattern in a few months...good thing too. I am running into some issues along the way but I am continuing on. All the rounds are done in sc and back loops...except the middle and added ponts. It is puckering :angry ....majorly!! But nevertheless I am not giving up! I have wanted to make this blanket since I first laid eyes on it. I wonder if it could be puckering because it is in the back loops :think...or maybe I haven't kept my tension the same? I have tried, I really have....maybe that will come in time. Anyhow, here it is...

 

Oh...in the background is Chloe. She is patiently waiting for her arms and legs...and possibly some new eyes lol...thanks for looking!!!

Just when I said I was going to give the ripple a break, I decided at the last minute to make this for my Mum for mothers day.

 

This was a rush job and only took 3 days.

Thanks Ladies.

 

Roxy I used Monicas 8 point ripple until the end of the flower and where the white part is I turned it back into the octagon again.

Aussie, this is gorgeous. I love it. Can I ask what pattern this is? It doesn't look quite like the other RR and I also love the border.

 

HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY, LADIES.
