It's quite embarrassing really how long it has been since I started this ripple blanket. It was when DJ was only 6 months old. Check him out here! Well it wasn't much use to him in the cot as I was intending to make it as big as BJ's rainbow ripple. I did rows sporadically up until early last year when I discovered that a couple of my colours had been discontinued & I hadn't even thought about it while I had not worked on it. It put me off as I needed it to make it look balanced with the mix of colours throughout.
I did search high & low for some but none was to be found. So I decided I had to make do. I had counted the stripes on BJ's & was aiming for that. I didn't think I would quite make it. But decided instead to straighten the ripple ends & then edge it around. I ran out of 2 colours in the end. But it's finished at long last! I'm quite pleased with how it looks. I sure will be determined not to leave something so long again though.
But DJ is in a bed now though so it will be nice this winter as an extra layer if necessary.
