me, me, me! I want to join!



Since seeing all the pretty blankets out there, I decided to go for it and start one of my own. I've known how to crochet since I was about 8 or 9, but never made a blanket. This one will be for my 19-year-old daughter who is away at college. Her bedroom is done in bright, bright colors including the hot pink and bright orange used here. I am just using caron simply soft brites in watermelon and mango. This yarn is so soft and not too bad for acrylic. Plus, I'm not too sure a college student would take the best care of a wool blanket. I, too, used the random stripe generator for my stripe sequence. It's pretty cool! Looking forward to seeing what everyone else comes up with!

Thanks for letting me join and for starting the ripple-along!

I hope we'll get to see it in your daughter's room when you're done!

this is very pretty. I love caron's simply soft ~ I use it primarily for baby blankets because its easy and soft to crochet - not so easy to knit though LOL
I'm new too, but welcome. :D

Mango and Watermelon. Sounds like a refreshing smoothie drink. Very pretty - I love the bright colors.
