Chunky Bobbly Happiness

Here's a more arteestic photo*, suggesting associations between the blue ripples and the blue sky, forming a backdrop for the creamy bobbles and the creamy-rich scent of grapefruit blossoms.

*original entry and closeup photo is below.

Every time I passed this tree I realized it reminded me of these bobbles and the towel is going to bring the same springtime spirit into my kitchen.


Hi ripply folks, here's my thirsty cotton accessory for the espresso machine that my husband gave me for my birthday. Espresso making requires a lot of wiping and soaking up and buffing. This single crochet-based ripple towel is up for the job.

I shopped for ripple patterns in Jean Leinhauser's 101 Ripple Stitches to Knit and Crochet (1997). There are plenty more in that book that I want to try after I finish this one.

Today I put a Ripple-Along button on my blog and I managed to make it show up, but I don't know how to make it clickable. Can anyone help me with that part?

Can't help with the button, but I wanted to say that your chunky bobbly happiness is gorgeous and your blog . . . I am in awe!
