Baby Ripples


Because I can't seem to have less than 10 projects going at a time. And the urge to start an actual ripple blanket. I looked at my 2 38-gallon totes that hold my yarn and found a large stash left over from a recent blanket. *A 4 strand speed hook child's blanket, made with pound of love yarns* I still had about half of each skein left, along with another of a baby yarn that was used to make a girls sleeper set *pictures on my blog if interested* So I decided to make a smaller ripple and start off easy. So this one is 96 long, and so far... will consist of 4 main colors and an edging color. The blanket under my ripple is my daughters play blanket made out of the 4 strands and done on speed stix *knit*

I have another scrap ball of yarn, similar to the edging one... just a lighter weight that may go inbetween every 4 colors... but we'll see how that goes. Right now I am planning on 3 rows per color with 4 colors to the patterns. But that could change. I also haven't quite decided on the owner of the blanket once done. It may just be a stock blanket just in case or will be added to my shop.

I love the colors. It is nice having an extra gift or two around.
