Ripple

Last year I managed to cross something off my bucket list, I finally taught myself to crochet!  I started off with a cowl and then a granny stripe blanket and then I started to feel a bit more ambitious and want to do a ripple blanket.

I found a great tutorial on the Attic24 blog and away I went:

I did a practise piece, something an impatient person like me never does but I really wanted to get it right.

And then I was off with this lovely pink, white and purple colour combination.

And it just kept growing.  It's a lovely relaxing pattern and I just keep hooking away while I was watching TV in the evenings until:

It was the perfect size.

And I can't tell you how soft it is, perfect for this little lady:

I was told that Alice loved her blanket and then I got to see for myself:

She loves to snuggle her face into it :)

I really enjoyed making it and I know I'll do another one but at the moment I'm wondering what to try next.

Thanks for stopping by
