it's done!

For the past two months, this bag has gone everywhere with me. Family visits, appointments, long drives, everywhere.

It started on the very long drive. And now, it's done!

It's the biggest thing I've ever crocheted! My ripple blanket!

Fifty-one beautiful stripes, twenty colours, two months, one great blanket!

That was put immediately on the bed just in time for the cold nights we've been having, mmmmm.

The finished size is fifty-one by seventy-four inches, yeah an odd size, but that's as far as I could reach in the cab of a dump truck. And no one's coming to check my work, right? haha!

Now I need to pick Harry's blanket back up. And then there's that neutral ripple.

And that granny I started.

And the Sunburst grannies....

I guess I have a whole winter worth of work in front of me. But who can really complain about a blanket growing in your lap? I can't wait to finish the next one. But which one will it be?

Ahhh, I remember when this beautiful blanket was just a ripple in your eye. It is amazing - great job!

I started a blanket for myself this weekend. I expect I'll still be at it two months from now... we'll see.

Have fun with all the other projects!!

I really like this blanket. I'd love to make a blanket like this one day... but I need to learn to crochet first!

Beautiful!! Love the colors. I wish I could crochet, just to make one of those blankets and some granny squares. Guess I'll have to finish my striped knitted blanket instead. 3 years in the making, almost!!!
