    Here is a small ripple baby doll blanket I crocheted. I used my wavy ripple blanket pattern and just crocheted a shorter starting chain. This wavy ripple pattern is very adaptable as I have made dishcloths using the same pattern and baby afghans. The blanket measures 20 inches wide by 11 inches long. I would have made the blanket longer but I only had about 2-3 ounces of the old vintage variegated yarn I was using. It still worked fine for this 11 inch tall baby doll as a blanket wrap.

  • Waste paper could make summer grilling more environmentally friendly

    26 Aug 2015 | 8:38 am
    Summertime is waning, and that means the end of backyard barbecues is almost upon us. That also means an end to dousing charcoal briquettes with lighter fluid. Reducing the use of lighter fluid might not be a bad thing, as many of those products are made from crude oil and emit potentially harmful compounds when lit. Now, researchers have developed a waste-paper-based, environmentally friendly and sustainable alternative.

Next I worked 6 single crochets (SC) in the ring, and next round I worked 2 SC into each stitch (12). Then next round, work 2 SC in next stitch and then 1 SC in next stitch, repeat around.
