Ripple blanket – halfway there

I might actually be slightly less than halfway done with my big blanket, but I try not to think about that. Because if I imagine that I have more than the work I’ve already put into this left to do, I might explode. (Though it looks kind of long and skinny in this photo, measurements tell me it’s at a 2 x 1 ratio).

I think I calculated that by the time I’m finished I will have put something like 48 skeins of yarn into this.

But, it is really cool. Seeing it all laid out makes it worth the work, and I believe it’s something I’ll have for a long, long time. Or at least as long as we have an orange couch.
