The blanket is done, all the way, ends woven...done 100% YAY!

Chibi wouldn't move so I could spread it out properly, I worked around her.  Used up lots of stash for this and that made me happy.  Only bought the first 2 skeins way back in 2007 when I started it.  Used some skeins completely and had to improvise some of the rows, but all in all I love it.  Really don't know what I am going to do with it...keep it or give it away.

The End!!

Yes, I finished the giant ripple last night!  It's folded up and waiting patiently for the end fairies to come along and get rid of all the dangling bits!   
Oh the ends!!

It looks so much smaller all folded up and of course these pictures are terrible, but believe me it big and the colors rock!

Ok can I say right now that I am not loving the blogger changes!  I cannot get anything to line up and stay where I put it, so if these pictures are scattered, it was not my intention for them to be like that!!!

Now since I am sure the end weaving fairies will not be paying my house a visit, you will find me curled up on the couch watching The Big Bang Theory and weaving and cutting tonight!  I do have to squeeze some sit-ups in there too, I have developed a bit of a pooch and not liking that at all, I am quite comfortable with my bootiliciousness and can deal with having calves that do not work with regular boots, but I'll be damned if I will have a belly!!

Anyway, just wanted a quick share with y'all on the finished (well finished crocheting anyway) blanket and will have WAAAAYYYY better pictures when all ends are woven!

Why yes, I am a terrible blogger

Goodness, I really can't believe I even have this blog anymore, I am never here even though I have made a permanent tab for it to remind me!  I take pictures, save them on my computer for use here, but then I get distracted on Ravelry or Pinterest and that's me gone!  Ok enough rambling.  I have a bunch of new stuff done. Well maybe not a bunch, but I have been getting things done!
First up, no pictures for it yet though is my giant scrap ripple!  I am on the last 2 rows and those should be completed tonight while sitting and watching Top Model with Katlyn, yay!!!  Of course I have a million ends to weave in, but I am sooooo happy to have it near the end!  I have other projects to get done and I really wanted to get this done before moving along the project list.  I do manage to get small things done in between, because it is Queen sized and not an easily managed project for transport.  Wait I do have a picture, not a full one, but just a reminder shot of what it looks like...
Just a tease!

Ok next up, I made some fun wrist warmers, they a Ogre Wrist Warmer, pattern from Lion brand using Vanna's Choice yarn, which I do love even though it's "just acrylic"  Fairly easy pattern, though I had to make adjustments because there is no way on a chain 20 base that they would fit a normal person, just way too tight and with no stretch, not going to work.

they work good :)

I think that's it for the moment, I can't seem to figure out how to get this blog set-up to work and have the pictures arrange right...see what happens when I go away too long!
So after all this time it's just a short post, but I have lots of hats in the works for my Cousin and finishing a blanket for my Niece and blankets for my Son, Steven & my Granddaughter.  Plus Christmas gifts for all the kids in the family!  Busy, busy, let's hope I have time to blog again ;)
