Blanket Ta-da!

It's finished!  My green and pink ripple blanket.


A close up of the pattern.

I made it to go on my bed, and oh! how warm and cosy it is.



 The yarn is Rowan, Belle Organic by Amy Butler. The pink is 4 ply, the turquoise is aran and the rest is double knit, this has given it some texture.  I bought the yarn from John Lewis last January and have been working on it on and off all year.  It was never meant to be something that was rushed at, just a project to pick up and do a bit now and then.  It was a bit thick and warm to work on over the summer and also got too big to take out with me.


I was, of course inspired to make this by Lucy at Attic 24, I followed her instructions, stitch by stitch and then voila!  A whole blanket!

The ripple blanket is so addictive isn't it! Yours looks lovely. I have made two using the Attic 24 pattern and now need to make a third! The fabric shop I went to was And Sew On at the Blake Craft Centre just off the A120 well worth a visit as it sells curtain, quilting and dressmaking fabric xx

It's beautiful, and just in the nick of time (we've had snow today - anyone else?!!)
