Finished: Martha's Ripple Blanket

Woo hooo! It's finished. In fact I finished it yesterday, in time for Martha's birthday as planned.

Here it is...

I love the bobbly edging, it is very pleasing indeed. The edging is worked along both straight sides, with the top and bottom left plain.

I'm so pleased it is finished and thank you so much to everyone who commented and left words of encouragement. I think we should all have a cheering squad sometimes, it works wonders. Now I can cross it off my list, hooray!

I am mulling over possibilities for writing up the pattern for the blanket, or maybe just a how to do the bobbly edging? What do you think?

As it was Martha's birthday, there was also cake. A very sprinkly cake!


p.s. linking to Handmade Monday again this week...


  1. It's lovely- I'm glad you finished it in time. I like that you only did the edging on the sides as it makes it hang really nicely.

  2. that cake... never knowingly undersprinkled... x

  3. Happy Birthday to Martha. The cake looks delicious. The finished blanket looks wonderful gorgeous colours and lovely bobbles. I think it would be a wonderful idea to write up the pattern. Have a lovely week.
