I'm another newbie, just joined, and I just wanted to stop by and say hi and thanks for letting me join. I have been reading the blog since last week and I have been enjoying the pictures of everyone's afghans. They are all beautiful!
I have been working on my ripple for a few days now, and I am very happy with how it is coming out. I have gone on and on about this afghan for the past couple of days on my blog, so I will try to keep this short.
I am using 18 colors of Caron Simply Soft randomly, and the "soft waves" pattern from 200 Ripple Stitch Patterns. The afghan measures 42.5" across and I hope to make it 60" long. 18 is a lot of colors to use, but so far I think they are blending well.
I do have one question for everyone, though. Have you thought about an edging for your afghans? I am inclined not to edge a ripple, but my corners are curling already. Since I am using acrylic, blocking isn't an option. I would appreciate any suggestions for an edging.
Thanks again for letting me join in all the fun!
