Hello everyone. I hope that you are enjoying your summer. Down here in Southern California we are having a heat wave. It's been in the high 80's and that's a bit too warm for me. I sometimes long for the gray, cloudy skies and cooler weather but I shouldn't complain.
This week I finished my version of Martha's Ripple Blanket. This was such a fun blanket to make. I found this lovely blanket here on Mrs. Brown Makes. Here is her tutorial on how to do this beautiful ripple stitch.
Stylecraft Special DK yarn which I bought from Deramores. I originally bought this package of 17 skeins and used 12 skeins for my Grandson's stripey blanket. I saved 5 skeins of the pink/purple colors and used an additional 5 skeins of white to complete this blanket.
bobbly edging and I think it added an extra design element to the finished blanket. (As you can see, each edge of the blanket has a different color for the bobbly edging since I didn't have enough yarn to do it in one color)
blog to see some great ideas.
Have a wonderful week and please remember to stop over at Handmade Harbour where you will meet lots of talented crafters. I'd love to hear your comments and know what you have been creating. Feel free to comment and/or sign up on my blog. :)
