It's finally finished! L's coastal ripple blankie, started some time in June, is now complete. It's actually a 21st birthday present for November but, as she chose the colours and has seen it progressing over the Summer, there doesn't seem much point in keeping it a secret. It took me a while to get going on this and after various false starts I realized that the number of stitches on my starting chain was wrong - maths was never my strong point - which accounted for my ripples getting out of phase. Once that was corrected, however, it was pretty plain sailing and I can see why people become hooked; it is rather hypnotic rippling away.
Anyway, here it is:

.... and back to the Ta-Dah!:
Thanks, once again, to Lucy at Attic24 for her excellent tutorials. I have quite a bit of wool left over and, having seen Gillian's gorgeous cowl on 'Tales from a Happy House', I'm tempted to have a go. I have a few other WIPs to finish first though.
That's all for now; pilates awaits! Enjoy the rest of the week. Toodle Pip x.
