Over the Rainbow...Ripple Blanket

l started this Ripple blanket last year and it feels like its taking fooooooorrrrrrwwwwwvvvvveeeeeeeerrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr to finish it..

I worked on it for a while...and have made some progress

from here in June of last year ...

to here now ...

   I have to admit I have been neglecting it for a while and had forgotten about my dream of having it wrapped around myself while watching the birds outside...

This last Saturday it was sunny and pretty outside here and it inspired me to start on my  "rainbow" again so when Spring comes I am ready for those, still cold, but crispy mornings ... with a "rainbow" (blanket) over me . 

I think I just have to keep carrying my basket /bag up and down... drinking tea and rippling day after day ...till Spring comes ... to see if I can get it done and enjoy the feeling of having one more project done and on with another one...

... with a rainbow over me ...

I really want to thank each and every one of you who continue to support me and my new followers who have just joined me on this fun and exciting journey. 

Hope you have a fabulous week.

  14. Hi, thanks for stopping by my blog and your kind comment. Your blanket is wonderful! I have wanted to make a ripple stripe for a while but wasn't sure if my crochet was up to it as I only learnt last year. Yours is so bright and sunny, perfect for spring.
