Hello Ripplers

I am thrilled to be a part of this rippling phenomenon! Thank you for including me! I began my ripple lap afghan last weekend. This year is the first time I have crocheted in years and I feel like I have discovered an old friend. I live in a small town with limited shopping so I resorted to getting my yarn at Wal-mart. I had zero stash. I was too impatient to wait for better shopping. Due to color choices I chose colors that would go in my bedroom. After the afghan was started I wasn't liking just how pastel and baby blanket looking it was. I added the two blues and the warm green. That helped some. I like the colors in person better than in the pictures.

I am using Susan B's Easy Ripple Afghan pattern. I have found it very easy, which is good for a rusty crocheter. I do have to do some frogging every now and then. Note to self~don't trust your counting when you are too tired. All my yarn except for 2 skeins are the Caron Simply Soft. I am surprised at how nice it feels for the price. When this afghan is finished I'm going to have to do another one with some bright colors. I am loving some of the ones I've seen others of you doing. Please come visit me at Lallee's Cottage sometime.

Warmest regards,
Lallee

I like the colors you added, that's going to look great with your bedding!! (I'm assuming that's bedding peeking behind your ripple!) ;)

Very cute!

Thank you! Yes, that is the bedding. I switched a better picture that shows more of the bedding.

I really like the colors you chose. I agree that those stronger colors really make the other colors pop. Very nice.

How pretty! I'm also returning to crochet, and you put it so well--it seems like an old friend.

I think your colors are lovely. Don't worry about buying yarn, it is something we will always use. diana
