I started this blanket ages ago and it sat doing not a lot while I finished my No Two The Same Crochet Blanket. When that was finished I decided to get on with my Ripple Blanket. This has been a long time in the making, I first started to write about rippling here, and showed my blanket before here and here.
The reason that it is called "All The Colours" is because I am using all 17 of the colours that come in Lucy from Attic 24's pack of Stylecraft Special DK. In some ways I am not sure if, for me, they all go together (sorry Lucy!), and they are definitely an awful lot brighter than I would normally go for. Originally it was intended to be for my hammock over the summer, but now that summer is ending and the blanket is no where near done it will just have to be for general snuggling and then I will have to make another one next year for the hammock won't I!!
I still have a long way to go, but I have worked out the order of the different colours to ensure that they are as random as they can be and that there are no two colours next to each other more than once. I did try writing out the order for you, but it wasn't very exciting so I didn't include it here.
There was one exciting bit - for me! - though. I filled in the end of the first ripple row to make a straight edge. It was a bit tricky and took some working out, but I did it. Trouble is that I didn't remember to write down what I did so I will have to figure it out all over again when I get to the other end.
Of course I will let you know how it progresses and show you when it is done!
Now that I am on the second round of doing the different colours I am enjoying the combination of the different shades more and when I saw this photo after I had taken it I decided that actually I really like them together more than I originally thought I would!
I'm not sponsored to mention Lucy or her yarn packs. I bought and paid for this yarn myself.
