Finished Ripple-Stitch Blanket: Purples and Pink

As promised, here is my newest finished project! This is my medium-sized blanket (about 2.5 feet by 4 feet) and it's extra stretchy and soft. (I put Coco in the last picture for a bit of perspective.)




One step closer as I stock up for the opening of ... my Etsy shop! I can't wait to realize this goal I've had for such a long time, and it feels so good to be getting nearer all the time. 

Speaking of which, tonight I'm sitting in on an online workshop via Scatter Girls called "Setting Up Shop 101." This is just the push I need in the right direction and I'm ready to take tons of notes. So glad to have found these ladies who are totally in the know about getting things going!
