Another Blanket

With the arrival of cold weather my thoughts usually turn to warm and woolly sweaters but this year I've been thinking more of blankets.  Perhaps it's an age thing?!

Anyway, I've started another blanket, and these are the colours I'm using.

There's less pink than I normally use but still plenty of yellows.  For this blanket I've extended my colour palette to include some greens and turquoise - how daring!

I'm using the Neat Ripple Blanket pattern by Lucy at Attic24.

It's very basic and straightforward to do but it's fun choosing the order of the colours and seeing how they turn out.

It's looking very jolly and as it's getting bigger it's already keeping me snug of an evening.  Blissful.


  1. Still looking good even though there isn't enough pink!

  2. It's so pretty! My wish list of blankets is just getting longer!

  3. It is that sort of weather isn't it! The colours look really good! x

  4. Beautiful. I love when crocheters randomly mix colors like you've done here rather than do a specific repeat.

  5. ciao Janet complimenti per la tua creazione ti sei presa un bel impegno :)

  6. Love your selection of colours. They are so summery and cheerful, which is just what we need at this time of year.

  7. Hi, I found your blog on pinterest. Your little mice are so cute. I love blankets too. Maybe you could interact with me and teach me to knit sweaters or do fair isle. I've tried so many times. I would love any help you would offer. Pamela

  8. Ooohh! Makes me feel all cosy! :o)

    I've just found your blog. WOW!!! Thank you so much for the free patterns, especially the cuddly toys. They are too gorgeous for words! Keep up the good work, and thank you for your generosity.

    Love Joan xx

  9. That kind of looks like my ripple blanket! Love it!
