In between uni semesters I wanted a mindless project that I could sit in front of the tv with.
I found this gorgeous ripple blanket on ravelry and decided that was the one!
A lady I used to work with is pregnant so I thought a nice little pram blanket would be cute and wouldn’t take me too long to complete.
She doesn’t know what she is having so Steve suggested I leave the pink out, which to me meant leave it in.
Firstly, I chained 152 stitches but it didn’t look big enough.
So I followed the pattern and added the rest. Big mistake. A chain is never as long as the finished product.
This blanket went from being a pram blanket, to just a blanket.
I didn’t think I was ever going to finish it.
I would race myself on the train to get three rows completed in a trip.
It took me a solid two weeks, but in the end I got there and she loved it. Well, she said she loved it…
And I told her to have fun finding all my mistakes! Especially the night I had a cider and thought it would be a great time to do more of the blanket!!
I even linked up to my first craft link thing over at Not Just A Housewife. I’m starting to get the hang of this blogger shiz.
