Just Managed To squeeze It In!

I was determined to finish this before the end of the year and I'm so glad I was able to get it done.

Granny Ripple Baby Blanket


I loved making this, I do urge you to try it.


I used three different shades from my stash, I made lemon the predominant shade because I have so much of it, then lilac and a varigated yarn with the same colours.


I love making granny ripples they almost produce themselves, lovely rhythmic ripples, you can just let your mind wander while the hook does the work.  The last time I made a granny ripple was here and I was determined to make another.



Florence the sheep just loves this blanket too.


She wanted me to take a picture of her so that she can be introduced to Fluffy, if you haven't met Fluffy yet take a look at Merediths blog, baa lambs want blogging friends too you know. :)

You can find the pattern for the blanket here it took 340grams of yarn


I have busted 620 grams of yarn this month that makes my grand total for the year ta da.......8182 grams that means nearly 82, 100 gram balls of yarn...I'm happy with that, I'm challenging myself to beat it next year :)

See other amazing totals here, I will be updating them over the next few days.
