The Rainbow Realta (aka the stash-busting blanket)


So in between all the baking I have done over the last 2 weeks, I have been trying to complete another afghan.  Back when I was completing this blue afghan  as a gift for my daughters teacher, my son decided that he  wanted a blanket for his end-of-the-year gift for his teacher too.  He didn't want a boring blanket though, his teacher "liked colours!".

I was on board with that, after all, I knew I had more then enough colours in the various yarn stashes around the apartment, and I had the perfect pattern for the job.


I found the pattern very easy to follow and it is very versatile to whatever colour pallet you have to work with.


The Realta afghan  created by the very talented Gingerbread Lady.  She is also the creator of the Kitties in a Row Blanket  that I made. ( shown in this post).  Check out her blog.

Gosh, Bri, that's just gorgeous. And I get a serious case of the munchies when I visit your site. I would just put my face into those trays of baked heaven and eat my way out of them. I now have to stop and make myself a cup of tea and snatch a biscuit to qualm the cravings. You evil temptress, you!

haha, yup thats me, EVIL (in capitals!) Lucky for you then that I haven't been doing any baking this last while. We are going through a bad heat wave right now ( 39 C right now, humidex makes it 43 C)and in a small apartment with no air-conditioning and 2 heat-oppressed children....that stove is NOT getting turned on!!!! Maybe I should switch my blog to popsicles and icecream?...

I'm happy you like the blanket, I'm making another right now as it seems my yarn basket is enchanted and the yarn never seems to get used up...
