I have nearly finished the Spring Ripple Blanket, yay!, only a day or two to go, I think. When a project is coming to its end I always get in a hurry, I just want to finish it, so that I can start something else. Or finish something I’ve already started. This is the reason my blankets are usually a tad shorter than I had planned in the first place …
I have lots of new patterns for blankets in my head, and there are so many ideas I want to try.
My blanket now completely covers me when I am working on it on the sofa and it is so lovely and warm to snuggle under it. I have shown the blanket to some people and they all say they like it. The like the colours, the brightness of it. It says Summer, it says Spring, they tell me. These colourful stripes, it is all pretty new to me, but some combinations I like very much. Like the lavender with white, beige and apple green. Yes, the lavender is lovely …
Most of the time making this blanket was utter bliss, although there were some moments of intense sadness …. about 10 centimeters of sadness ….
Now, in my head I have already started a new blanket –what is it, that making blankets is so utterly satisfying?– and luckily I have the yarn for it in my boxes. I think. I must.Anyway, back to the sofa and my blanket, must finish the border. Enjoy your weekend!
