Nisa's Happy Ripples - Day 5

Ripple, Day 5 - happy colours
specs: H (US5) hook, 2-ply worsted weight wool,
New England Highland by Harrisville Designs


I'm on day 5 of rippling now. I haven't been able to work on the blanket as much as I'd like to. I had to run out today and get 4 more hanks of wool in the colours I'll be using most. I've decided to use only 1 shade of green in the blanket because the other greens were either too dark or too olive-y for the girls' room. The blanket is wider than I had estimated it to be for a twin-sized bed - it's 60" long (I'll edit this post later after I count how many stitches I made the chain). It could probably have been a couple inches narrower and still had some room to drape over the sides of the bed.

Ripple, Day 5 - flowing like a river

I thought everyone was nuts when they waxed all poetic over rippling, but now I'm a believer. I love this project.
