"Gather ye Rosebuds"

OK, so admittedly this is not just stash!! This Ripple Blanket to be, is for my 10 year old, very discerning daughter, who was very particular about her colors. So we have bought some newer yarn to make the palette of her choice. This is the Knitpicks, DK merino, and it was very reasonable. This is also my first blog entry ever!! I cannot wait to begin the blanket. This blog has some incredible posts and has been very motivating.

I have been mostly a knitter for the last 5 years or so, but learned to crochet first as a child. So I have ordered my own copy of 200 Ripple Stitches and intend to use the "Soft Wave" pattern. I love the gentle meandering of the curves. So armed with an old metal hook, and our fun collection of yarn, I can't wait to begin. I will return when my blanket starts to assume some character. Please keep up all of the posts, you are all very inspiring!

Can you use wool and cotton together in a ripple blanket? I like yours!!!! I am a knitter- all these Ripples have inspired me to learn crocheting- so I am and hope to start my blanket soon :)
