Intro


Hi y'all, I'm Mary. This is a photo of me taken in 1979. See what's on the back of my chair? My grandmother made that ripple afghan. She crocheted a lot, lace dresser scarves, ponchos, etc. (My mom made my Lanz-style Christmas nightie.)

I recently learned to crochet and joined the granny along (yes, that was me who also posted a photo of myself wearing a granny vest). You know how it is when you are learning something new and you get just a little obsessed. . .



I'm making a twin bed-sized ripple for my 6 yo ds. I'm using Caron Simply Soft and the pattern is from Jan Eaton's Encyclopedia of Crochet Techniques, called Double Crochet Chevrons. Ds' favorite color is green, which will make up most of it, along with some blue, red and tan.

I love seeing what everyone is working on, it's so inspiring.

Cute photo! Looks like you are getting away from those 70s colors in your recreation though *grin*. Not that brown and harvest gold are bad but....

Susan, I think most of us who lived then *O.D.ed* on those colors!
