Chocolate & Turquoise

I've been coerced into making an afghan for my teenage niece. My mother told said niece after she commented on how she wanted a blanket at the end of her bed like Grammie has because her feet get cold too that Auntie Jill loves to knit and maybe she'll make you a blanket for your bed. The next time my niece saw my Mum she said to her "I can't wait to get my blanket from Auntie Jill, I'm so excited!" And the requested colors were chocolate brown and turquoise. So, here I am in the Ripple A Long. I moaned and b*tched about having to drop everything and make this blanket but was so inspired by all of the ripple afghans I have seen over the last couple of weeks, I couldn't help but crochet one as well. You are evil temptresses and are probably in collusion with my mother!

I have to admit that it's nice to crochet and I haven't done any serious crocheting in a few years. I'm using Encore yarn in the worsted weight mainly because it's machine wash and dry and it's what I use when making things for my nieces and little siblings.

Progress so far...


Keep the inspiration coming, I need the motivation to continue to work on this!
