I have been rippling away of late, making colourful blankies (small blankets).
This one I made for my Granddaughter, Hope. It's hard to see the beautiful colours in this photo but the green is a bright vibrant green, and the rainbow is bright joyful colours full of purples, blues, oranges and yellows.
I love rippling, it's so pleasing to see the stripes taking effect. I also love random colour changing yarns, you never know quite what pattern will pop out as you work.
This one was the perfect size as a pushchair blanket - and for playing "peep-oh" with ;) (sorry for the blurry shot, she was "peep-oh-ing" too quickly to catch her!
Babies seem to love bright colours, I was a little afraid it might give her a headache - along with the bright lime green pushchair I bought to go with it ;) Well, you have to buy a pushchair to match the blankie don't you? (Just for Nana's house)
The second blankie I made was for a good friend, Shelley, who is nearly fully baked with her bun-in-the-oven. (a wee chap).
I knew someone was making her a pram blanket so I set about doing a car blanket - one that you can chuck over baby when in the car seat in case it's a bit nippy. So this one was, again, a small size blankie.
They work together so well, with the Signal Red picking out the red splodges from the Sizzle.
