Hey y'all, from Down Under

I'm a South Carolinian (a Charleston girl) living in Sydney, Australia, so it's great to see how many people from all over are a part of this thang.

I got to start my ripple blanket on Friday night and so as of day 4 I've got this far:(Sorry about the pic, it was dark when I took the pic and I was wanting to get this put up here! I'll take more pics in daylight.)

I'm working with Filatura di Crosa Zara, and it's absolutely delicious. It so rocks to work at a yarn store! The colours are just singing "tiptoe through the tulips"! I'm using a 5.00mm, size H. I haven't even got to the spring green and cream, and I'm just so excited about it. If it wasn't so darn relaxing to do, I'd be dancing around the house with it. I'm also going to be trying to post about it on my blog, but I'm a bit lazy about it.

I absolutely LOVE your colors!

I'm using Zara also, but I like your colors much better. I started out thinking I could use every color imaginable but felt otherwise after six rows so I'm rethinking it a little.

Love Zara -- so cushy (and machine washable) but a little splitty, I'm finding -- a problem most likely because I'm a beginning crocheter and have little facility yet.

Very nice. I like your bold colors and I see that yarn (never tried it) comes in a good range too.

Great color combo...I have a feeling my next ripple is going to have to have some red in it. Good grief, I'm thinking of a next one?
