Without further pause, here is the progress so far.
Here is the progress and I have not repeated a color yet. I have one more color to add, then try to figure out what to complete the blanket with next. I think when I repeat the colors that some will be much wider bands of color and some will be just one tiny strip, just to keep some of the color balance going through out the entire blanket and use up those scraps.
Here is the basket of scraps. As you can see there are some large balls of yarn and hidden in the deep shadows of those are some very small balls of yarn.
This concludes the update on my ripple blanket... I hope everyone out there is having a wonderful 3 day weekend if you live in the USA. It has been nice to sit down and catch my breath today. I hope it is the same for you :)
