I have done a couple of ripple blankets before but needed a refresher and found a brilliant tutorial by Lucy at Attic24 here.
So armed with a stack of bright and cheerful acrylic yarn, I have been rippling along now and again since then. I paticularly liked the way that Lucy managed to crochet a border around her blanket and although she hasn't got a tutorial for this, she does explain how she did it. I think it really finishes the blanket and seems to hold it's shape alot better than the unedged ones.
The magnolia stellata is just about starting to flower now.
