One week before Christmas I began to work on Dads Christmas present. A ripple blanket in bright colours and a folky feel. Folk = scraps in my mind so I rummaged a sizeable collection of Cascade 220 Superwash from the Wool Stash and got hooking.
There are splooshes of pink and peach, green and brown…
Oh dear me, what a panic I was in. I feared I’d still be halfway through the blanket when it came time to open the presents. I crocheted like a crazy woman, dragging my work around with me and getting in a tangle with the cat. I hatched a cunning plan to dissuade Handsome Hubble from assisting me…
He’s a sucker for boxes and willingly sat in the box so I could crochet like crazy.
I managed to get the last of the ends sewed in and the blanket wrapped with 1 hour to go!! Phew!
Here are a couple of snaps of the blanket in its new home. I think it looks lovely!
The pattern is called Ice-Cream Sundae and is on page 45 of my ripple book.

Hope you had a lovely Christmas and New Year with lots of hooky fun in amongst the mulled wine drinking and the mince pie eating.
Happy New Year!
