Crochet Ripple Blanket Update...

 Hooray! I'm almost three quarters of the way through my crochet ripple blanket project :-).

So far I have:
  • 5 repeats of 6 colours, with 4 rows of each colour (1 + 2 + 1) per repeat, for a total of 120 rows
  • 120 rows of 283 treble stitches (on a 4.0 mm bamboo hook), for a total of 33960 treble stitches!
  • used approximately 30 x 50g balls of Sublime Baby Cashmere Merino Silk DK (but I have lots of scabby little leftovers from each ball that I can use for smaller projects like Granny Squares).

 I have another shadowbox card ready to photograph tomorrow....fingers crossed the sun is out.

Oh my gosh this is looking awesome Sam. It's going to be finished in time for the cooler weather - mind you I bet you've been enjoying having it on your lap whilst working on it lately with the lousy weather we've had.

Wow Sam - your crocheting is awesome! You have certainly learnt how to do it very, very well! I love the colours - they look so fab together. Makes me want to get out my crochet hook and get stuck right into it.
