Yay, I managed to finish the cushion I have been crocheting over the last week or two, for myself this time, and with Lucy's instructions, it was a breeze. Doing a ripple pattern seems to be quite hypnotic, I found myself drifting off to goodness knows where a few times in the evenings. You know, the best thing about crocheting something is that you can pick it up anytime, spend a few mins doing a row or two, and put it down again to carry on with all those mundane task we have to deal with every day. I did that quite often, and it is surprising how quickly the project will grow if you do that.
So here it is, my ripple cushion, made with left over yarns from the granny blanket and the Lucy bag -
I wanted to make a feature of the envelope style closure, so instead of having it on the back of the cushion, I decided to have it on the front. I tried to make the little ties look like stems and leaves
The back is just plain unadorned ripple, and I did a simple shell edging on the sides of the cushion
And now I am itching to start something else, lol, crocheting really is very addictive. Don't know yet what it'll be though, hmmm, will have to have a good think.
