Rainbow ripple ta dah!

I've been looking forward to sharing this wee blanket with you for such a long time. It all started back here (and a wee bit of progress here) as part of Lucy and Heathers ripple-a-long.
My rainbow ripple blanket is a small one designed as a capsule/carseat type blanket for wee babies. It used up most of my acrylic yarn left over from the rainbow granny square blanket.

The crochet work on it has been finished for a long time, like since November 2011! But those pesky ends needed darning and I kept getting busy and didn't get around to it. It's been folded up in one of my crochet bags (I usually have a tote bag for each project on the go) for ages and the other day I finally declared it darning-in-ends-day! It really didn't take very long and I felt a bit daft leaving it so long in the end but it's done now - yay!

My original plan had been to make blankets for each of the 2nd babies in my coffee group but there's too many due close together so I am going with the baby hat plan instead.

And now I'm not too sure what to do with my rainbow ripple. Do I keep it for if/when we have another baby or do I sell it? Anyone want to buy it?!

  1. Love the rainbow colours with the ripple pattern. :)

  2. ooh, I know what you mean! I am hopeless at darning in the ends! Your blanket looks lovely all finished though. I'm sure you'll find someone lovely to give it to!

  3. I say keep it for yourself - nothing better than a rainbow ripple to brighten up dreary days!

  4. I am in love with this rainbow/ripple pattern. When I was looking for a granny blanket earlier this year for my little guy's room, I seriously considered one that looked exactly like this!
