Ripples for Sophie

The latest big project has been a crochet ripple blanket made from Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino using the Attic 24 instructions.
I dug out all of the scraps and half balls of this yarn I had accumulated over the past few years and started rippling in the middle of May using a 4mm hook.Ripples After a few rows I decided to use a random stripe generator to make my yarn selection easier. I'm still not 100% happy with the way the colours work together, but it got better as it went along.Sophie's Ripples I finished this on the 9th July by adding a border of trebles in cream and then a row of double crochets in purple.
