    I really like this blanket although it is smaller than I first thought. Great use of colour 🙂

    It’s meant to fit on the back of a single chair and then over my lap on chilly evenings! Have a look at Ripple 1 and Misty Morning – Ripply 1 is massive!

    I so want to make this throw but it have painful writes from crotchetiness and knitting I will only be able to do a little at a time so it will take ages, still I’m going to start it.

    I have no idea what happens to my spelling in my comment.
    I’m going to start this throw inspite of painful wrists


  • adaliza says:

    Well, good luck and let me know how it turns out. It’s all about the colours and putting them together with a ‘surprise’ in every square. You could always join them ‘as you go’ which would save sewing them all up at the end. There are lots of internet tutorials on how to do it. Let me know how you’re getting along.

    Did you pick out your colors individually or did they come in a pack? They are gorgeous!


  • adaliza says:

    I found Kristin Nicholas’ blog and her yarn was on discount in Webs USA. I just chose a load of it as the colours were so delicious. A large box of yarn arrived very promptly but I hadn’t bargained for the import tax!!! It’s still worth it and Kristin’s new yarn ‘Color by Kristin’ is still on sale but only in the US. I sometimes use Drops yarn here in the UK – lovely quality and pretty colours but nothing compared with the beauty of Kristin’s. Hope this helps – I made every square completely at random just choosing colours that seemed to go together – and every square has one vibrant colour – that’s what makes the whole blanket ‘sing’!

    Very pretty, beautiful work.


  • Liz says:

    So pretty! Just wondering if it could be made bigger & in a rectangular afghan shape. Can you tell me the width of the border as shown? I think I can figure it out myself just making more squares. Thanks!


  • adaliza says:

    Hi Liz – the tweed stitch border is just over 5″ and then I added a simple shell design just to finish it off. It will easily make up into a rectangle by simply adding more squares to one side. Good luck and do send me a photo when it’s finished. A
