This is week two for the Summer Garden Granny Square Blanket, and week one for the Bella Bee Ripple Blanket. Steady progress has been made on both. I had a little catching up to do with the squares so haven't got round to sewing in the ends on the last few. I feel I still need to work on the colours a bit more on this blanket. I'm not happy with some of the combinations, and I'm going to stop using the Lavender, it just doesn't seem to be 'gelling' with the others. The colour palette is a bit too limited. I'd like a few extra colours to play with so will be looking at getting a few more this week and see how they work out. Once I'm happy with the colour combinations I can start sewing blocks of squares together so it's not such a big daunting job at the end. At least with the slow growth it gives me time to work on the colours so I'll be truely happy with it when it's finished.
The ripple though, Oh My, I'm in love! I'm skippingly happy with it. I have yet to do today's row as I did initially include yellow, but wasn't satisfied with the result so I ripped it back and it set me back a couple of rows.
I'm glad I've got both blankets on the go. The ripple will provide a quicker result and keep me satisfied while I plug away at the other. And only doing one a day still gives me time to do a little knitting occasionally, because I still need to knit!
I'm off to get rippling.
