11 Ripples

My daily -- almost daily -- ripple is turning out to be a treat.  Each morning I lay out my ripple blanket with the yarn for the next color.  If my day is going smoothly and I've been a good girl I sneak in 20-30 minutes to crochet the next ripple.  Mindless and satisfying.  I've decided to go for a beachy palette -- blues, greens, yellows, tans -- with a hit of 1950s color. 

11 Ripples Complete

For more ripple fun, check out The No-End-In-Sight Ripple-Along.  Not up for an entire blanket?  Why not ripple a scarf like Kim's?

I like your colors (and how you describe them). Hope you post to the blog also so that more people can appreciate and be inspired.

Oh thanks for the scarf link! I can't imagine using a crocheted blanket let alone making them, but that scarf looks so much do-able! Your blanket is coming along real nicely, great colours!

Those ripples are addictive. I can't put mine down sometimes either. I am already plotting the next blanket.

It does look like fun! I have almost (but not quite) overcome the lingering trauma of the Burnt Orange, Harvest Gold, and Beige cheap acrylic ripple afghan kit I spent most of my early teens not finishing.

Very cool ripple blanket. I like the color palette.

Great colors. I didn't crochet much over the last weekend, but I'm back on track with mine now.

I love the measured increments. I've been meaning to crochet a vintage-y blanket, good way to use up yarn.

Hello Nona!
I am hoping you could help me: what do you do with a cardigan which the edges are rolling? I just finished knitty's sitcom chic, and while adorable, the front edges are rolling in-----ugh! Can you help??!!?!

#1 is finished but more are planned. See what you've started!!!! :]

Oh, it keeps getting better and better! Love this ripple. What yarn brand/colors are you using in particular. I'm really liking them.

I've been contemplating a crocheted afghan for my bedroom for a while. I was thinking granny squares or some sort of log cabin (a la Mason Dixon), but now I want to ripple -- apparently it's quite contagious. I really like your colors, and I too am curious about what yarn you're using.

I agree with you so completely! Thanks to you, I delved into Ripple-world a couple of weeks ago, and can't stop thinking about it...Once my mom's birthday socks are off the needles, the yarn's gonna fly. Wow. Crochet. I never thought I'd be so excited about it!
