Thanks for letting me play. I love the looks of ripples and I am definitely inspired by what I see here.
Yesterday, I messed around with the ripple patterns I have on hand. This one is the classic ripple pattern from Diana Kooler's Encyclopedia of Crochet. This is the pattern I'm leaning toward. I'm waiting on a new pattern book before I commit to it though. My plan is to use up stash and be a bit reckless color wise to challenge myself. I made the swatch in my favorite colors.
I hope to keep updates on my blog as well. I have been a bad blogger lately.
