This pink ripple reminds me so much of ice-cream, well like a raspberry ripple I suppose hehe! I am using acrylics for this as it is for my niece and she is a total blanket baby(although she is nearly 10), her Mum has brought both her girls up to be just like her and they love anything comforting especially blankets and because of this they get taken EVERYWHERE! So to be kind to Mum I want it to be washable and dryable.
This I started because I absolutely loved the last blue one I did and have some yarn left over. It is a cotton blend yarn and although at times a little splitty it is still in my opinion a really lovely soft yarn especially the Wendy Sorento it feels more luxurious but is still easier to wash etc than other yarns.
And finally this beautiful rainbow of ripple is mine. It is my blanket that I am making for me, for my bed, for me to snuggle up to on cold nights whilst happily hooking away. I am using sublime baby cashmere, merino, silk DK and it is WONDERFUL! I cannot compliment this yarn enough, so pleasurable to use as it easily slips through hook and fingers to create this beautiful woolly loveliness. Gorgeous is what it is. Now being a beginner at all this I haven't yet had the chance to use many other brands of fine wool but for me this is my kind of luxury. It will take a while to make this blanket as it is SOOOOOO LOOOOOONG but it will be worth it.
So there you have it my ripples. I have some granny squares on the go as well but I will share those in a future blog. Hope you all had a fab weekend xxxxx
