Ripple Update

Today at lunch I was able to finish up the fourth color of the ripple so that you would be able to see what it looks like with all four. It looks like a 1970s blanket to me, but Mate likes it so I am just going to go with it for now. Maybe I will make us each our own for the bed since we don't share blankets anyway! (I know that this sounds strange but it works for us, if we share then one of us wakes up in the middle of the night with no blankets and that sucks!) So here is it in all of its 70s vintage.

What do you think? At
first I thought that the gray looked out of place and that I should really have put it in between the cream and the honey color, but it is starting to grow on me. So far I have only had to frog it once, which is pretty good. Usually ripples and zig zags are not my forte, I am the worst counter in the world. But, this pattern that Lucy at Attic 24 came up with is awesome. If you can master the dc2tog (double crochet 2 stitches together) this will be a walk in the park. The stitch sounds complicated but really isn't.

I almost forget yesterday I received some more stock yarn - I know I didn't really need it but it was a great price! This yarn is Sirdar Bonus DK and boy do I love all of the colors that I picked. This might be the ripple that I will make for
myself! Take a look and tell me what you think of them.

While you take in the colors and I off to go and do some more rippleness.

P.S. My korner at home is getting a face lift, in the next couple of days I will have some updated photos of what my room looks like.
