A Labour Of Love..

I actually finished Milo's blanket a couple of weeks ago but I'm going to give it a post of it's own instead of including it in the monthly round up just because I love it..



I think in the end I bought three balls of yarn but all the rest was from my stash.



There are 62 stripes in total and as I said previously each stripe took about an hour to do, sometimes I felt like it was never going to be finished, especially when my wrist started to ache,



and sometimes I thought Milos choice of colours were a bit eurgh.



but it was all worth it to be told " I don't just like it mammy - I LOVE IT " ........



A big thank you has to go to Lucy for providing such a lovely and easy pattern.

It looks absolutely amazing, and awwww that last picture of your Little Man all snuggly in his very own ripples is wonderful!!!
I've promised my two LP that I'll make them a ripple each, i can't wait to see what colours they come up with!

Love Milo's Ripple blanket is is great ~ he looks such a happy little chappie all snuggled up in it too. I don't envy you all those little ends that you had to sew in though! :O)

Wonderful! You do have the patience of a saint! The colours do work though - a perfect heirloom-to-be :)

I hope Milo comes back and tells us how warm and snuggly his blanket is when the weather turns really cold. I like how it is large enough to get totally wrapped up in. x

Well done for finally finishing - it looks fantastic. Thank goodness he's so appreciative after all that effort!
