The End.

Alas, i have decided to frog my blanket. I never did feel very good about the way it was developing, and now that I am working on three other blankets, I just don't want an ugly one in the mix. It's also so very huge, and it will take forever to finish this blanket that I don't even like.

Perhaps one day I will pick this blanket style up again, but for now it's off to work on Babette for bestfriend's Sept. birthday, Granny Ghan for my bedroom, and some other blanket for my french cousin's 1 year wedding anniversary - any suggestions for that one, by the way? Maybe i'll do a ripple for her? She likes the "heat colours". Loose translation ;)

So, RIP rip ripple.


Ripple blanket: nine stripes

I think it's kind of cute, but if you hate it, frog it now, before you've spent 100's of hours on it. I'm planning to do the Babette blanket this coming winter. I just haven't decided which yarn and which colors to use.

Awww, so sad. But I'm sooooo jealous that you're doing a Babette! Hope it turns out lovely for you.

Oh the hearbreak of frogging!!
What is a Babette please?

Kim said...

Oh, don't frog!! It is beautiful! Maybe you could set it aside and come back to it later--- ?

i actually quite like it, too, but if you're never going to like it, then perhaps it's best to frog it & salvage the yarn for something you will love.

peggy, the babette is a blanket of a lot of different sized squares. it's a pattern from Interweave Crochet and here is the flickr group for it: http://www.flickr.com/groups/purlbeebabette/

I think it is beautiful! Maybe put it away for now and come back later, see how you feel then. It is so easy to be over critical of this blanket when you're only a few stripes in--if you keep going, you will be amazed at how all the colors work together....:)

Did you crochet the first row of each color in the back loops only? It looks cool the way each row kind of pops out.

wrap it round a pole. That overlapping would be awesome in public.

I think frogging is fine, but which one was the ugly color?
