oh dear, oh dear, oh dear. I've been away far too long and I know it... But you know how life sometimes gets in the way of blogging. I had a hell lot of work to do for university as I'm planning to start writing my Bachelor's thesis in a few weeks time. But of course there were a few other exams to tackle before. I'm done with them now plus I've finished another major project. The second Cashmerino Ripple!
I really as hard a time choosing the colours as getting them right in the picture. They really are vibrant, but looked so dull in most of the photos. This one shows them perfectly:
I used the following colours (numbers of balls in brackets):
62 Kingfisher (3,5)
47 Aqua (3,5)
502 Lime (3,5)
55 Blackberry (3)
202 Light Blue (3)
34 Mustard (3)
57 Indigo (7)
38 Pink - discontinued (3)
102 Beige (3)
11 Light Green - discontinued (4)
56 Petrol (3)
46 Heather (3)
That's 42,5 balls of Cashmerino Aran... Thank god I got most of it at more than 50% off!
I used the same border as on my Blue Patchwork Blanket, but made the main colour stripe wider. Like that effect.
Just if you where wondering, these colours are VERY different to what I use usually. Here you can see the Baby Cashmerino (right) next to the Cashmerino Aran (left) ripple. I have to admit I love the Cashmerino Aran one soooo much more, but shhhh!
And here it is in it's full beauty (ah well, what I could catch of it by balancing on the coffee table. I make my blankets far too huge to be perfectly pictured...)
I promise to be back soon. There are a few pairs of knitted socks that want to say hello to you and laugh at me for promising myself to never ever knit socks. Well, the sock bug got me at last...
