Ripple love

I have been wanting to try this ripple pattern for ages so when I found out one of my girlfriends was pregnant I knew this was just the project I wanted to make for her bubba.  Anna is one of those beautiful souls who is always full of colour and joy.  I knew she was too colourful to go for the generic pretty baby pastels so I choose to use the Carnival Soft 8ply mainly because of the funky vibrant colours it is available in.  It was lovely to work with and I am really happy with how it all came together.  Lucy makes all of her patterns/tutorials soooo easy to understand...thank you Lucy!

I have already made one of these bags (in similar colours to the ripple blanket) but I think I made a bit of a boo boo because mine is too huge to hold my yarn (which is what I was making it for) but I have found that it is perfect to hold lots of fresh produce and goodies from the farmers markets!
This colourful stripey blanket is next on my wish list, maybe in a rainbow of colours....yum!
