Ner ner ner, i accomplished one of my goals!!! I finished my sea wave ripple blanket.
YES! So proud right now but i aren’t proud that since the start of this month ive done nothing but eat shit, drink diet pepsi and just meh whatever though.
So happy 4th of July for yesterday LOL! – I spent ALL day on this thing and I started one of my other goals which was to watch Pretty Little Liars as i had never seen it before, i actually think i started it on Sunday? Whatever. It hit midnight i had like 6 rows to go and i was so drained from working it all day that i left it til today.
Why is it when your so close to the end of something it literally takes forever? Please explain that to me, my wrists were tingly i had crocheted that much. I took toilet breaks quick email check etc but honestly i just busted ass.
I followed the Attic 24 neat ripple pattern for this blanket and it turned out pretty well.
I think during the process i had to frog a few rows as my count was off at the end of the row and i usually found that i would fucked up around about the start of a new row so it was such a pain to frog back all that way. FML – I will say that this blanket wouldn’t be done if it was adult size, this is a baby blanket and measures at 31×35 inches so its a nice size for a baby. I kind of hate thinking of blanket sizes because i don’t come across babies that often LOL so when i first ever met my friends baby, i was like shit they really are SMALL. I don’t know why i thought they were as big as a blanket. Honestly – I think that’s a good reason why i will never be ready for a child hahaha Ill be buying my kid cars before they even know how to tie laces.
I actually really enjoyed doing this blanket. Anything blue i love, because it’s my favourite colour. It relaxes me, i mean just look at those shades i feel so close to the sea which is always such a memorable and relaxing place right?
It makes me want to pack up and live in a little wooden house right on the sand 😦
I usually get really bored of blankets even when it’s a request and i tried to do the ripple way back when i started my blog and i never finished it. In fact whatever i did do got thrown out months ago a long with the colours.
The yarn is used is…… Obviously stylecraft. I always go back to this brand and i think they are spot on with the shades that they have especially the blues. I have a few more colours that i wanted to use as it reminds me of being under water and searching for Atlantis. But i don’t know what ill do yet as i just seem to have yarn just for ‘just incase’ type of moments.
Starting from the white and going to the darkest shade here are the colours i used in stylecraft special DK :
Duck egg (1820)
Storm blue (1722)
I used a 4mm crochet hook and for the border i jut went down the sides of where i started and end rounds and did two TR/DC in each space of where i have row of colours. Meaning i did 6 TR/DC for each set of colour.
I tried to follow the Attic 24 edge pattern i think that’s kind of the start of it but I just did my own thing. I didn’t want anything over the top for a border and i didn’t even do a border on the sides that were wavy.
I can’t say i ever use crazy borders on my projects because i like to keep that aspect of it simple, i see it more of a frame and the blanket is it’s own portrait.
And here is the final picture
So for the rest of today/evening and tomorrow well some of tomorrow i am going to relax, check my bullet journal and it’s to do lists then move on to the next.
(I can now record a video without any issues so Saturday will be bullet journal shit cause you can plan next week with me :D)
That’s it for today. I am catching up on blogs BTW So if i comment or like something from weeks back that’s me catching up LOL!
Hope everyone’s having a good week and if your craft happy what you all been making?
