A Finished Project or Rather Two


Happy to update that Ripples had survived the wash in the machine and hang out to dry and finally DH is using it!

Another view of ripples
Are you bored yet?
Thank goodness, something else in picture!
Yahoo! A finished project!
All of 2.5 skeins, I suddenly remembered that I am not tall so 4 skeins was not necessary!
See? Those Giant Wire Hangers From 100Yen Sure Came In Handy!

lovely ripples blankie! just one question, will the yarns be softer and gentler after washing? i'm thinking of making one for my friend's baby due in sept, and not sure if minlon yarns are suitable for babies...

Emily said...

soft? dont know... tonight I go rubber2 it and let you know.. how much are you paying for minlon these days?

stargal said...

i forgot the price, but according to N, minlon is abt RM1.90/skein... ok, remember to raba2 and let me know wor! thanks! :)

stargal said...

oh anyway, i took a look at the website u mentioned for the pattern... just wanna say, yours looked much much nicer! ;)

Emily said...

Ok, now I remember... for infants you have to be very careful. There is a reason why baby yarns were created.. less harmful vapours and coloring? Minlon is not soft enuf for infants too, btw. Hope that helps.

How about trying quilting!

Emily said...

stargal said...
