Blanket Love and Inspiration

Lately I've really been wanting to make a blanket, but it is so time consuming that I have a hard time deciding what I want to make since I'll be working on it FOREVER! So instead I'll spend way to long looking online at all the pretty blankets, bookmarking for the future, and drooling over the colors. Let's have a look through my blanket bookmarks shall we? (At the end I'll show some blankets that I have made. So read on!)

First I love this waffle stitch from Suburban Jubilee.

I LOVE the color blending that Colour in a Simple Life does. So pretty!

I also really like the Chevron look like in this blanket from Purl Bee. It's definitely back in style! I even like these colors, but I'd probably do pinks to browns. Like a cherry chocolate chip blanket!

Finally, the last piece of inspiration. This ripple blanket by Attic24. I love this pattern and have used it MANY times!!! I used it when I made the blanket for Jessica Simpson and am currently in progress of making one for my own family.

And now for some blankets that I have made!

This ripple blanket was part of a celebrity gift basket for Jessica Simpson's little girl, Maxwell Drew. I adapted Attic24's pattern above to make it work.

I also made this scrappy afghan for a friend's baby shower. They are a bright color loving family. This one measured really big. It was as long as a queen size bed is wide.

 You can see the others I've made on my website!

So are you feeling inspired to make something new? Leave me a comment telling me about it. Feel free to link to a post you've written about a blanket you've made as well!
