The end is now is sight for Eleanor's Ripple Blanket. The main body of the blanket is now finished and all the ends have been sewn in. Actually, I sew the ends in as I go, I would hate to have so many to do all together at the end. Here it is, waiting in my basket for the edging to be added.
The first row of side edging will be pomegranate to match the first and last rows of the blanket but I'm unsure as yet what other colours I shall edge it in. I think three or four rounds should do it so I won't need to use all six colours.
The edging is my worst bit of blanket making but I wouldn't leave a blanket without an edge as I think it needs one to finish it off. It can look a bit messy without.
Eleanor's looking forward to getting her hands on her blanket. It will be finished at just the right time now that the cooler weather is here.
I'd just like to thank everyone who left a comment on my last post. All your good wishes must have worked as my mum was allowed home from hospital yesterday. She's got an appointment at the Warfarin Clinic this morning and an out-patient appointment at the hospital in a fortnight. Her arm and side are still black and blue and she's still in some pain, but I'm sure she'll feel better just being in her own home. I shall pop round and make a fuss of her this afternoon.
