It's been a while since I've posted any updates on the ripple blanket I'm crocheting for Eleanor so I thought I'd show you where I'm at with it at the moment.
A blanket is a large undertaking so I like to take my time with such a big project. I'm thoroughly enjoying the process of rippling the yarn together and I love how the colours are working out, especially with the interlocking colour pattern.
My favourite colour combinations are the darker shades.
The lighter shades are what does it for Eleanor.
I'm in no hurry to finish this blanket, especially through winter as it's keeping me lovely and warm as I'm working on it.
I don't tell Eleanor that I'm taking my time with it though, she's anxious for it to be finished.
Its beautiful Jo. I'm sure Eleanor will be delighted to snuggle beneath it...ReplyDelete
Thank you. Eleanor's looking forward to being able to snuggle beneath it, I'm keeping the fact that I'm taking my time with it to myself.Delete
It looks lovely, I bought a selection of pastel coloured wool yesterday to start another blanket.ReplyDelete
Thank you. You must show us the yarn you've bought and tell us more about the blanket you intend making.Delete
It is so lovely to be making a blanket and being able to snuggle under what you are working on isn't it!! Eleanor's ripple is looking lovely, I like all of the colours! xxReplyDelete
It's the perfect project to be working on through winter. Eleanor chose the colours herself, I was a little unsure at first, but I think they work really well together.Delete
Its lovely Jo! Gorgeous colours!ReplyDelete
Thank you. I think this is the blanket I've enjoyed crocheting the most up to now.Delete
I won't tell!ReplyDelete
Love from Mum
Ha ha. I hope she doesn't read this post.Delete
Looks good, and snugly! Flighty xxReplyDelete
It's very snuggly. I've made it quite large purposely so that Eleanor will be able to snuggle inside it.Delete
I really do like your blanket the colours are beautiful and go so well together. Only trouble is you keep giving me lots more ideas to swirl around in my head of future projects.ReplyDelete
I'm just the same, I come away from reading blogs with so many more ideas for future projects. If only there were more than twenty four hours in a day.Delete
Looking good. Love the dark and light colours together. xReplyDelete
I'm really liking the interlocking pattern, the colours seem to blend together easier.Delete

Good colours... the pink green mix is beautiful!ReplyDelete
I didn't think the colours would work so well together, I'm so pleased I went with Eleanor's choice now.Delete
I do love ripple blankets, and the colours Eleanor chose go together so well.ReplyDelete
I always wanted to make a ripple blanket since I started seeing them on blogs but the one I made for Daniel was a bit of a disappointment as I should have made it a little wider. This one is proving to be a joy to make.Delete
Gorgeous colors, I love them all x you crochet so neatly x I crochet quite loosely so it tends to stretch a bit xReplyDelete
I've never really thought about my tension, though now I come to think of it I suppose my tension in both crochet and knitting is fairly tight.Delete
Your crocheting is beautiful Jo, so neat. I do love the colours too. I still havent tried the ripple pattern, I really should put my mind to it!ReplyDelete
Thank you. I really enjoy the ripple pattern, it's so repetitive that you can get in to a bit of a rhythm with it, definitely give it a go.Delete
It's looking so gorgeous and I just love pink and green combinations. I was going to take a photo of mine yesterday and the battery went flat on the camera, so hopefully today I will do another post and show mine too. I'm enjoying the rhythm also, but it's very different to yours. Take care.ReplyDelete
I think the pink and green combination works very well together, though I had my doubts at first. I look forward to seeing yours when the batteries are charged.Delete
It really looks beautiful. I happen to be partial to pink and green, so I'll always be enthusiastic about that, but your work is very neat and the interlocking pattern is so intricate. I look forward to seeing more. :)ReplyDelete
Thank you. I love the interlocking pattern, it adds a little extra interest to it and doesn't make the stripes look too harsh.Delete
Your blanket is gorgeous, those colours are so pretty together. I had a go at ripple crochet last year while on holiday and really enjoyed it, in fact it is still in the caravan cupboard, maybe this year it will get some more added to it. I found it relaxing sitting in the shade and hooking away to my hearts content.ReplyDelete
Thank you. I've only been crocheting a couple of years but you're right, it's really relaxing. I'm enjoying the ripple pattern, it's easy to get in to a rhythm with it and you don't have to concentrate on it too much.Delete
Oh yes I can imagine getting snuggly under that blanket. I'm with you, the darker colours are lovely. I'm sure it will be well loved.ReplyDelete
Eleanor loves the other blankets I've made. She's been poorly this week, off school Tuesday and Wednesday, which is unheard of for her so I know she felt bad, and she got all cosied up in crochet. She's eager for her own to be finished.Delete
Its looking so pretty! I like the color combinations your crochet looks so nice and neat. Makes me want to try a ripple! The way this wind and cold are keeping up I would take a little more time...keep warm:)ReplyDelete
Thank you. My other blankets have had plenty of use this week, what with colds doing the rounds in our house and the terrible weather. I'm in no rush to finish this ripple.Delete
I'm not surprised Isobel's in a hurry to take possession of it ... it's lovely!ReplyDelete
Eleanor would be very upset if someone by the name of Isobel took possession of it before her, ha ha.Delete
