Stripes everywhere!

I'm enjoying these two striped projects I've been working on. The socks seem to race along because I knit really quickly to get to the next colour!

The ripple blanket is working up quickly too although it is starting to slow down a bit now its bigger and one extra row makes less of an impact. I'll be doing a purple stripe next although it's shown up as more of a black colour in this picture.

I've finished my Rays of Gold cardigan which was a mystery KAL. I just need to sew the buttons on and take some photos so I'll probably share it with you next week. I'm going to try to get the socks finished for Friday :-)

  1. Blankets like this definitely have their stages of feeling fast or slow don't they? I love the colours you are using.

    1. Definitely, I do like the way each new colour means I've done another couple of inches. Every little helps right.

      Thank you, they're just left overs from my yarn bag, I'm going to have to start reusing colours soon

    1. Thank you :-) The ripple pattern is nice to work, it's got a rhythm to it and doesn't require much thinking but is still interesting to do
