Ripple Blanket: Fin.

Fin., originally uploaded by kpwerker.

I’ve finished my ripple. With five balls of yarn left in my grab-bag, I just couldn’t go any further. I joined one ball, ripped, joined another. Until I just had to listen to the blanket. It was done. I did a two-round edging of single crochet in teal, and it feels amazing to be finished!

I started the blanket in February of last year, so it took nearly eleven months to complete (with lots of idle time). I don’t know the exact dimensions; it’s just wider than than a double bed, and long enough to cover me comfortably from shoulders to feet. It’s soft and warm.

I used all odd balls from my stash, and forced myself to use whichever ball my hand touched first when it was time to change colours. I learned a lot about my colour preferences (notice the greys, blues, and wine/purples).

I have a ton of small yarn balls leftover now, along with the odd balls I didn’t end up using. I’m sure by next week, or so, I’ll be back making granny squares like the wind.

Totally beautiful! And you look so cute in the picture! I’m learning to knit next week at a knitting party. Maybe sometime in the next century, I’ll be able to make a blanket like this. It looks mighty cozy!

Considered to be the largest bed size that individuals can order from marketing sites as well as local home improvement stores, the king size bed is commonly manufactured depending on the popular and attractive support designs such as chambers, inner springs, foam and water. People who want this specific kind of bed should choose from the varying sizes offered in their places.
