I have to say I really, really love working with yarn! I just find it so easy to pick up and put down - well, more so with crochet than knitting perhaps - although having said that, English paper piecing can be like that too ....... But that's more for the summer months when the hands are looking for cool cottons to work with!
It's still Winter here, so I need to keep moving on more of my knitted projects that have been put to one side while the ripple took priority ........... I'm just really, really wanting to start something new and fun......hmmmmmm Poor DH, wonder if he will get his sweater this winter!
If you want a few more details about this ripple .....
I used 17 shades for almost 3 full repeats (2 rows for each colour / double row : ending up with 47 double rows of colours) I cast on 213 chains for the foundation row. This blanket is pictured on a Queen Size Bed with finished measurements of approx. 155 cm (60in) wide x 140cm (55in) deep. I haven't done a border until I find out if DD would like one around it. The yarn is mostly acrylic in 8ply (DK) and I used a 4.5mm hook .
