I came across a pattern for a knitted ripple blanket and just had to have a play. I made the rainbow dolly version first, using some acrylic yarns that were on Sale. That also gave me the ability to tweak the pattern a little.
Before investing in some yarn that has a much better pedigree!
The brown one on the right is a local yarn made from the wool of a local breed, the Manx Loughtan. The other two I'm not so familiar with, but it's pure new wool, from a british breed, so I know our pregnant friends will appreciate it. Yep, you guessed, another baby gift.
Gotta go, I want to get more of this larger version done so I can show a picture tomorrow.
