my ripples are limping along...

I'm happy with the way my ripples look but this is the largest crochet project I've ever attempted so my progress seems slow. I'm averaging 1-2 ripples per day so I think I'll be rippling for a month or two. But I am happy with the look of it so far and I love looking at everyone else's creations as well. I also like reading about what kind of yarn people chose for this. I'm using superwash dk wools - Debbie Bliss Merino dk, Rowan Pure Wool dk and Jaeger Matchmaker dk. I think my next ripple blanket is going to be in the much more value priced Caron Simply Soft Brites because I am in love with Oiyi's ripple blanket :-)
Take care,

It is looking great! Mine is slow going, but really there is no rush because it is "just for me". If I ever do another it will certainly be machine washable and machine dryer friendly like yours. I don't know if a 100% wool blankie is such a good idea - but too late now!

Peace!

I love your colors so far. I'm generally not a big fan of ice cream shop palettes, but this one is lovely! Please post your progress as you work!

Awww...thanks! Oh yes, making it in Caron Simply Soft Brites is very affordable. I happened to have a stash of it, so it worked out perfectly. I never thought that I would be using all those colors together when I bought the yarn.

Your color combination happens to be one of my favorites on this blog. I'm also a fan of Caron Simply Soft yarn also!
