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.
