2 weekends of watching Lost episodes will get you this far...

I've been happily rippling along on my ripple blanket, quietly adding blues, blue grays, teals and whatever else I find laying around.
I was quite excited to find the Ripple-along and joined right up.
I'm finding endless enjoyment in seeing how the ripple stitch changes the interplay of colors, in my own blanket and in others'.
Looking at other ripple blankets, however, I realize I'm not decreasing in the same way everyone else seems to be. I'm just skipping 2 stitches in the "valley" of the ripple, as opposed to actually decreasing them. I actually like it, though, the lacey holes it forms!

The blanket is getting to be warm in my lap, so I hope to have it finished before the weather gets too warm. I started it for Project Spectrum, so I would really like to have it done by the end of the month!

Very pretty colors. Can't wait to see a shot of it, finished, to see the difference in your stitch pattern!

mmmmmm, it's perfect for the project spectrum colors! i have to say, that has always intrigued me, but was totally intimidating too. now i'm thinking it's doable and a great way to approach picking colors to ripple with...of course, then i'd have to buy more yarn once the new round starts in april. hehe.
