The other day as I was slogging away at the zillionth row of my ripple blanket, I realized that if I made it as big as I originally planned it was going to be absolutely gigantic. I definitely overestimated the width. And not that a huge cozy blanket isn’t a good thing, but I didn’t want to invest any more time or money into something that was big enough already. So I flip-flopped the orientation, measured it, and found that it would already fit on our queen sized bed. It is something like 63 by 87 inches.
So, I wove in the ends and called it a finished blanket.
I think it will actually live on the couch as a throw or a guest comforter because the dogs jump on our bed too much for me to be comfortable leaving it there. I can just see doggie toenails digging into all those pretty rows – yikes!
Next up, I am going to start bulking up my scarf supply for winter sales and experimenting with petite baby blankets. I will also have a big announcement soon – stay tuned! (Don’t worry, it has nothing to do with me needing baby blankets).
