grannies & ripples

I've made some progress on my grannies & ripples blanket! So far there are 13 rows of ripple, there will be a 14th once I get another row of grannies completed. I'm doing a different color for each row, there's no sequence, just random colors. I'm liking how it's working out so far.

I love staring at this blanket! The colors aren't my typical colors but I love them! Here's a shot of the full thing, not an awesome picture but it shows how wide it is. It should fit nicely on a twin bed, which is good because this will probably end up as my son's blanket.

I have a few ends to weave in before I move on to the next strip of grannies. If I can find some more time to myself, hopefully I'll have the grannies attached by the end of the weekend!

Have a great weekend everyone!

  6. Wow. Those colours really do work quite well together. Also, you've convinced me to try this pattern. Also also, your carpet looks just like the one I ripped out of my house when I first moved in here 4 years ago.

  7. This project is looking pretty darn hot, let me say.

    I am really drawn to the idea of combining grannies in with other stitches, and this one looks very effective.
    Great colour choices too,

    cheers

  14. What an awesome blanket! I'm currently working on a bobble stitch blanket for my daughter, but it's taking me for-ev-er to get through it. Your ripple blanket is an inspiration to me. :)
