Second Ripple Blanket.
Yep this is another project in my WIP pile, I’m working on another ripple blanket, after having made my first ripple blanket last year (the project which turned me into a crochet addict) I decided I needed to have more than one ripple blanket because not only do they keep me super warm in winter but it makes my bed look pretty :) it’s still summer here so I still have time to finish this giant blanket for our queen sized bed. I’m following a colour scheme this time instead of using random colours like my previous ripple blanket, I have also decided to crochet only one row of the light pink yarn each time instead of doing two rows like the other colours on the blanket and I’m really liking how its looking. It’s coming along great, still plenty to do though as I’m not even half way done. The beauty of having so many WIP going on at once is that I get to pick and choose what to work on each week, this way I don’t tire or get bored from just working on the one project, the thing with me is that I am easily distracted, if I have to work on something for more than a week (craft wise) I start to get bored, having a lot of WIP’s works for me, because after taking a bit of a break from a project by working on another I feel refreshed and I look forward to going back to working on the previous project again. Is that weird? does anyone do that or is it just me because I’m weird? I wonder if there is a terminology for what I have? ‘ADD Crafting’ maybe???? Who knows.
I’m going to kick start this blog with a TADA moment of my ripple blanket!
I FINALLY finished my first ever ripple blanket. So happy with how it turned out. It looks right at home on our bed. I’m glad it is still winter here in OZ. I can thoroughly enjoy it, and I am sure it will make an appearance next winter and the winter after that. I assure you it is very very warm and the colours are just so cheerful, they make me smile. (When I was making this blanket I had no colour pattern in mind, I just simply picked up random colours from my stash, surprisingly worked out well).
I followed the ripple pattern from the lovely Lucy at Attic24 blog. She is so talented, and it is so nice of her to share her patterns so we can make lovely things too. Thanks Lucy!
