I finally finished my Bright Neat Ripple blanket, just in time for my mom's Birthday.
It took me much longer than I had anticipated. I worked on it all the way up until the day of my mom's party, but watching her open this gift was definitely worth the work.
You can find all the details about this blanket (yarn/pattern used) here
The border alone took me about 20 hours. I had a hard time finding a border I loved so I improvised.
I won't be making another ripple blanket for awhile. I've made two very large ones in the last year. They are beautiful but very time consuming!
