a love-hate relationship . . .



















. . . is what I have with this ripple blanket. I go between "gorgeous - can't wait to drape this over my bed" and "wow, what was I thinking??" But I am determined to see it through because 1) this is my first crochet project and 2) big UFO's like this are hard to hide. I find that I like it better in the photos than in real life -- who knows why?

Here's another shot of it next to my felted knitting bag. Guess these are my favorite colors, whether I know it or not.


Have a happy, ripply Monday!

It's great! lovely work (for the awesome bag too!). Doesn't it feel like surrendering when you pull the less-happy color out, and then it's so surprisingly nice?

I love your colors. I like the way you through in the single row every now and then, too. Very nice. I understand the love-hate relationship. I do that too with mine.

I may have to quote you - "big UFO's ARE hard to hide!" I like the way you think - and your afgan so far:)
