My ripply blankets

Hello, I've been following everyone's lovely ripples for some time and wanted to share some of mine. They all look a bit bumpy and uneven, but that's because they've been stuffed folded neatly into bags because I'm out of wool for them. I seem to pick wool's from hell for my ripples because I always manage to pick a colour/maker that my wool shop likes to discontinue as soon as I get a few rows under my belt. Grrr.

Anyway, here's where I'm up to with my tribute to Cath Kidston...

I've run out of the pale blue which is a James Brett 400g aran and (stupidly) I threw away the band so have no idea of the shade to order more now that my local shop stopped stocking it.

My next ripple has a Halloween theme and uses black, orange, purple and vari purple DK.

The shop picked the orange wool to stop stocking for this ripple and (again) I don't have a label so don't even know who makes this one. Double Grrrr.

My final ripple isn't really a problem to find wool for, as it's my oddment ripple. I just use whatever is leftover from other projects. Easy.

I'm not really loving this one though, as the colours are anything but complimentary together. However, I'm loving 'doing' it because there's something very relaxing about you all no doubt know already, lol.
