Block a Week Friday

Welcome to the final block a week Friday! 

Block 10
Horizontal Ridges

I have been looking at this block for a while and have just passed it by until now thinking it was too easy and there was nothing much to it, it is a simple design but it's lovely when it's made up, I especially like it made with this rico creative cotton it makes an ideal dish cloth, this will be gifted to one of my friends.

I have also used this stitch to make a neck warmer which I will show you when it's completely done.

I can't believe it's actually over I have met my challenge and I have really enjoyed it, I have learnt new techniques and stitches which I will be able to incorporate into many of my knitted projects.  

I would like to thank everyone who has worked along with me especially the ladies from Loving Hands, in particular appledumpling who has posted her  blocks every week without fail she is doing the whole 200 blocks out of the book! quite an achievement. 

I will keep the challenge link displayed at the top of my blog and if anyone would like to give it a try you will have my notes to work from if you wish.

I will be showing the blanket which I have made from these squares when it's finished, I'm about halfway through joining the squares the worst bit by far.

Have a great weekend! :)

  1. I like this one a lot! I think it would make a perfect dishcloth and I can see it as a scarf or baby blanket too.

  2. Very pretty, Linda :-) Congratulations on completing your challenge.

  3. Hi Linda, I love this stitch and it must be so pretty as a dishcloth. This would be great as a neck warmer too! I love the color of the yarn. Have a wondeful weekend. If I don't talk to you again have a Merry Christmas.

  6. It has been great following the progress of your squares through the year and seeing all the different ones and how they turned out! xx

  7. Wow, Linda, this is really striking, especially in that colour-changing yarn. It has such great texture, both visual and actual.

    Congratulations on finishing your challenge! A very Happy Christmas to you and yours. :)
