Granny Ripple Finished at Last

I seem to have been working a long time on this blanket but in actual fact it's only been just over a month so not too bad really.  I have made this for the homeless as part of the Loving Hands winter Challenges, I'm hoping that besides providing warmth the bright colours will give some cheer to someone who is living rough and doesn't have a place to call home. 
This blanket was a joy to make, such fun to see the colours rippling along, I found the tutorial for this blanket here
I do encourage you to have a go, it's a great stash buster too and much quicker than a traditional granny blanket made with squares and fewer ends to sew in, can't be bad :)
