I've finished and edged the ripple part of my cushion cover (aside from weaving in a couple of ends). I've not yet decided how I'm going to do the back. I might do some sort of granny square or more rippling or be adventurous and have a go at hand sewing a fleece cover. For now though this is what it looks like :-)
I edged it in blue simply because I have lots of that yarn left over from my Scrappy Granny Square blanket. I used Little Tin Bird's fab tutorial for straightening out the top and bottom edges. I got in a bit of a pickle initially as I was finding it really hard to get my hook through the stitches and it just wasn't working right. I threw it on the floor in disgust, went back to it a couple of hours later and realised I'd been working on it backwards so no wonder the stitches were hard to get a hook through! A couple of hours later and I was done :-)
I'm a knitter at heart though and it's rare for me to be without a knitting project. I fancied something indulgent and not too complicated but with a bit of detail to keep it interesting. So I got out my sock yarn and started on a Multnomah
The garter stitch section whizzed by and now I'm doing the old shale lace pattern which is deceptively simple. There's only 1 row in every 4 row repeat that has "lace" and it's just a pattern of 6 increases followed by 6 decreases. It's really enjoyable to knit :-) I have to do 10 repeats and I'm doing my 7th at the moment so hoping to get it finished over the weekend. If you've ever wanted to give shawl or lace knitting a try then I'd really recommend it. It's definitely beginner friendly but looks so clever lol.
