It seems like a long time ago I started the ripple blanket. I was just going to use up some scraps from Miss Murfin’s Christmas afghan and whip up a little lap blanket.
A few months ago it looked like this.
I used 7 colours in what I call the Lucy repeat from the lovely Attic 24 blog. This was one time through the colours.
I worked 2 times through the colours and thought, I’d like it a little bigger.
3 times and I have this monster!
6 rows of 7 colours X 3 repeats = 126 rows! Now I have all of these ends to sew in and a couple of times round the edge for a border and I am done!
It is lovely and soft and very warm when you have it spread over your lap to work on it. I need to get it finished before the really hot weather get here.
Then maybe I can get the African flower afghan done…but I also have a Cath Kidson inspired blanket in the wings. Both done with smaller individual blocks, so good projects for summer.
