Happy New Year!


I am thrilled to be rounding out the year with another BIG finished project.  This ripple blanket was started way back in July '07!  Who knew it would take me 2 and half years to finish?  I like that this project didn't have a deadline, but there were some long stretches where it was in hibernation.


I had a great time picking each color as I went along.  I love the randomness of it.


I think it's funny how this next photo looks so blue because I don't notice that in the finished blanket.


Scrabble would agree, it's  a very good thing to have this done and available for snuggling.



The blanket measures 40" x 61" and has 81 stripes. Each stripe is composed of 2 rows of the pattern.  The pattern is Soft Waves in the 200 Ripple Stitch Patterns book, by Jan Eaton.  I used an E crochet hook and various wool and alpaca dk and sport weight yarns.

I hope you are having a very Happy New Year where ever you are!  May 2010 hold new and exciting adventures.
