Some might have noticed I didn't post last week. I had gotten behind. I had a nephew's birthday looming and had to abandon current projects for birthday projects. I'll share the fruits of my labour (up till 3am one night!) soon. Plus I find that as I'm doing two large projects, the progress doesn't feel as quick as smaller ones and as a result it seems that my photos seem to be very similar from week to week. So, as I've managed to catch up with the Ripple Blanket, but not yet with the Summer Garden Blanket, from now on I will alternate the blankets each week.
The Ripple Blanket is now much more substantial, and it's lovely to work on it in the cooler evenings with it across my lap, helping to keep me warm while I try to prolong turning the heating on.
I have now come to the end of my first balls of yarn. I have completed 17 rows (2 rows per colour stripe) per ball. I'm thinking I will need another ball and a half to get the required length. I also need to start thinking about the type of border I want.
Name: Bella Bee Ripple Blanket
Pattern: Neat Ripple Pattern (ish)
Yarn: Stylecraft Special DK
Colours: Grape, Pale Rose, Meadow and Cream
I hope next week to have much more progress to show you on the Summer Garden Blanket.
Pop along to Gingerbread Girl and check out the other projects.
Peace Out X
