finished

Whilst the rippling was completed a couple of months back and then the most part of the single crochet border was completed not long after that I’ve been diddle daddling about whether or not to finish of with a picot stitch. In the end I decided to go for it. And now baby O’s ripple blanket is finished.

I’m so pleased with how it has worked out. Made of cotton it is so soft to touch. Delicious. Baby O seems rather pleased with it too.

The picot stitch was the right decision me thinks – it gives the blanket a nice “finished” look.

Ravelled.

Postscript: I just phoned my Dad to check on how is going. He had a full body scan a week or so back and hasn’t heard anything back so on the premise that no news is good news we’re thinking the treatment is working. He is upbeat and positive as always.
