One for Us

Last year after moving here, I decided that come this winter up here it would be nice to have a ripple
 blanket for our bed ...... so I started on a Queens Size Ripple Blanket using Luxury 8ply (dk) yarn from Bendigo Woollen Mills.  Its lovely to work with, but was way to warm to be able to continue over the Summer months.  Once it cooled down I was able to pick it back up and Ta Da ........ all finished!  I decided to put a lace edge on either side of it to hang down and kind of finish it off.

Now, I had thought this had posted at the start of the week, however I've just returned and found it still sitting as a draft .........

And now I'm working on another knitted top ....... the photo has come out sideways so you may have to turn on your side to actually see .   I'm amazed that the self striping has actually worked so well in this particular pattern!  I had no idea it work like that when I started this and had expected pooling rather than striping!  Hope you all had a lovely weekend!  No long weekend up here, so its back to work this morning for me ....... catch you later!

Your blanket looks great - and it is even cold enough this year to use it for a few weeks.
I am amazed at those stripes in project 2...it looks very controlled.
