~ round ripple baby blankie ~

Good morning everyone.  Finished up the round ripple last night.  I also made a hat to go with it.  Can you spot the hat in the picture?  

The blankie and hat were crocheted with 'I Love This Yarn!' in 'sugarplum stripe' and a J hook.  I love using 'ILTY!' because it's so soft and squishy, and the variegated colorways are so pretty, but I can't buy as much as I would like since it costs more than my favorite go-to yarn Red Heart Super Saver.  I will treat myself every once in a while though.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I ordered more of the 'guardian grandma' cards for the baby items.  I changed the wording a little about the washing - what do you think?


I have 200 cards, so I'm pretty much set for all the baby donations that you ladies would like to send me.  ;)

Also, the last time I visited the hospital, the head nurse asked if anyone knew how to quilt.  She put in a request for quilted covers to go over the top of the isolettes to help keep out the light and noises.  The quilts don't have to be fancy.  If anyone could help out with that, I would appreciate it tremendously.  

Thank you so much.  ♥

  1. Wow, that ripple looks fantastic, Debi. The colorway is really pretty!
    And what a coincidence, I just finished two small ripples :)

  2. Beautiful. I love ILTY, but we don't have any Hobby Lobby's locally. So, I get it as a treat now and again. I end up using Pounders and Bernat Super Savers quite a bit instead.

    I was just looking at a ripple star pattern like this, to make a scrap afghan!

  4. Nice!! I really have to start making one of these again. But they eat up so much yarn!

  5. Hi Debi. Your RR and hat are very pretty. I had a hard time finding the hat, but did locate it. I like ILTY also, but agree it is a bit pricey, especially if you are buying multiple skeins for a project. Have a terrific day. Heather

  6. That is so beautiful Debi, how many grams of yarn does it take, I have some variegated but I have a feeling there won't be enough, I suppose I could alternate it with white. I can just make out the sweet little hat it's well camouflaged. :)

    1. Thanks Linda. I used 10 ounces of yarn for this blankie and hat. I looked up the conversion to grams and it is 283.5 grams. :)

  17. I love "ILTY" too! It's on sale this week but still costs more than the Red Heart Super Saver. I wish I did quilt but that talent went to my mother and sister.

  22. Debi, Love the blanket and hat (Found it!) I'm fairly new to your blog, I run a crochet/knitters club at the library I work at, we donate items to charity as well. Is there a pattern for this, I get your emails but this didn't have a link to a pattern.

  23. *Puts hand up*
    I can see it!! I found the hat!!

    So gorgeous and snuggly looking Debi. I love the cards too, really sweet, :)
    We don't get those yarns over here, I don't know why as I've heard some companies stock a few of the red heart yarns now, but not the red heart super saver sadly,

  24. What a lovely effect and much easier than joining yarn for a scrappy blanket!
    Not sure if that yarn is available in Australia, i might have to check it out, Jane

  25. I had that same pattern Debi, we left today to travel Australia for 12 months and i've just realised i dont have it. Do you think any of these patterns i found are the same? hoping you can help as I really want to start one for the nursing home. http://rosereddesigns.blogspot.com.au/2011/02/rosereds-12-point-round-ripple-free.html or http://smoothfoxlover.blogspot.com.au/2009/06/free-smoothfoxs-beginners-round-ripple.html or http://idealdelusions.blogspot.com.au/p/basic-round-ripple-afghan-pattern.html Thanks Jane
