Granny Ripple Baby Blanket

I have started a new Granny Ripple Baby Blanket.

I wonder who this could be for? Do you have any guesses?

I am using a "G" hook and Simply Soft yarn in Brites. The Pattern comes from a small booklet called Nursery Favorites by Leisure Arts.

The colors are Coconut, Mango, Watermelon, Lemonade, Lymelite, and Blue Mint. So far I have used Watermelon, Mango, Coconut, and Lemonade. The pattern is five rows of each color and two rows of Coconut separating each color. I have made adaptions to the pattern as usual for me, to suit my own talents and tastes.

Ghost, OUT!

that blanket is going to be so cheery and wonderful! I know your grandbaby will love it!!!

I like your hook, too! Is that a rubber cover, clay, or did you buy it that way? It's pretty!

Love the colors. What a fun pattern. Will have to keep my eyes peeled for that little book. The yarn looks wonderful, how's it hooking up. I haven't used that one yet, but it has caught my eye, when in the store.

Enjoy your weekend,
Kate-The Garden Bell

How bright and cheerful! I love this ghan. I have not had time to make my blog rounds the last few days but I did look at all your projects. Of course the chocolate kiss has to be one of my favorites! Ellen Gormley is a wonderful designer and I'm sure her scarf design is well written. I love your rendition. I always enjoy seeing your projects. Thanks for sharing them.

I also have never seen a granny ripple blanket before. I love the colors as well. It is going to be another wonderful project done by ghost, you do such nice work.
I am so bad with colors. I never know what color to put with what.That's the reason I went with browns for the calendar cal.
take care
