Progress


I've made some progress on my ripple afghan. I have used each color once, and now I intend to repeat the stripe pattern as established 2 or 3 times more. I think if I continue to add colors randomly, the afghan will just look too busy. Besides that, I am really pleased with the stripe pattern I already have.

I did start the next color change, using the rose color again, Monday night. I got to almost the end of the second row, only to discover that I had made a mistake in the row below. So I need to frog almost 2 entire rows! I haven't had the heart to do it yet, but I will try to do it tonight. As we used to say in graduate school, "Nothing to it but to do it"!

The same thing happened to me last night! Past midnight I saw the mistake and realized I had lost the evening's work.

Your blanket looks great, though, and at least you're pretty far along. I'm still on rows six and seven.

Fantastic!

I wish I knew how to do a ripple pattern... I consider myself an intermediate crocheter mostly, and a lefty, so I'm at a loss to learn how to do a chevron stripe/ripple...

Anyone up for a challenge?

Check out my fiber "porn" site... it'll give you an idea of what I've been up to.

Maven, you need to come to a meeting of the HHCC - we'll get you crocheting ripples! (Dee clued me in as to who you were, and I have been seeing your emails on the CT Crochet Yahoo group.) Then you can join us ripplers!
