I finished a thing :)

This is the ripple blanket I've been working on (along with other things) since mid-June. It's finally finished!!!

Attic24 Neat ripple banket copy

When I started this project, I intended it for my Dad, but now it’s finished, it’s come out rather brighter than I wanted. I thought I’d chosen sober colours appropriate for an elderly man, but I’ve managed to let the lighter colours dominate.

So… I’ll give this one to my husband for snuggling under while watching TV in the cold weather and I’ll give the corner-to-corner blanket to my Dad. That one is coming out much darker and hence will be more practical as a lap blanket for when Dad goes out in his wheelchair.
