Hello my friends! I am happy to have finished a long project. I started this neat ripple blanket in August for my niece Jessica and her new husband, Gabe. I attended the wedding reception and posted some photos last August. This has taken me longer than I had hoped, but it's done.. done.. DONE! Woohoo! When I put in the last stitch a bit ago I flipped it out on the carpet to get a photo and my darling little Buddy immediately laid down on the edge. :-)
It's hard to find a good place to photograph a blanket..
The "roll" shot.
Over the chair in the dark living room.
Then I cleared off the dining table and spread it out.
This is the neat ripple pattern by Lucy at Attic24 blog - her free patterns are on her sidebar. I like it better than the pointier ripple I learned when younger. It's more organic and smooth.
I used Premier Home cotton blend - 85% cotton 15% polyester for a more long-lasting product.
I really do like the look and feel of cotton. I used these two natural colors as I wanted it to fit in any color scheme or decor that my niece and her husband choose for their home.
I am happy this is done so I can move on to other UFO's and WIPs (unfinished objects and works in progress). :-) Now to get it boxed up and shipped!
How are you doing on finishing projects? ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
