Finished - ripple and book

Yes, that means I finished the Ripple blanket I was working on last week and the book I was reading - 'The Best of Me' by Nicholas Sparks. Excellent on both counts.

.

The White and mint/yellow was perfect for MsE and she is very happy with the blanket.

Finished dimensions - 41"x38" so not quite a metre square but the perfect size for pram or cot and for a toddler to cuddle.

The yarn was Baby Grand from Lincraft a very mother and baby friendly, soft easy care Acrylic Nylon mix. Almost three 100g balls of white and two of the coloured yarn.

A request for some little boots so I hooked these up from the left over yarn.

Please ignore the ends waiting to be woven in - this is first size so very small and easy to complete on my commute.

Joining Ginny and the other participants in the yarn along over at Small Things - lots of inspiration in one place!

Wishing you a week of stitches in whatever mode you choose.

Love the blanket, and how cute to have matching booties (not to mention, a great way to use up the yarn!)

Such a cute and cosy blanket, and matching bootees too, what a great idea.
