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.
