Who's in Sydney?

I've been trying to post for three days now, but I couldn't get my internet connection to work (I'm now at the in-laws'). So here's my progress up to day 13 of my ripple, Wednesday (it's now Saturday in Sydney). I have done about 3 more strips beyond this since then. But I was so excited to finally reach this spring green. It'll come up more after a few more rows, and I'm just about to reach my last of the nine colors I've got: lovely, soft cream, to give the whole thing a fuller range from darks to lights. This pic shows the waves-on-waves effect I'm getting, but there's one that shows it better on my blog.

To the title of my post, someone from here came in to
Tapestry Craft (the LYS I work at) in Sydney yesterday. The staff member in the wool department called me to ask if I was part of the ripple-along, so of course I said yes. And she said there was a customer with her that was also participating and that she would send this person up, but they never came to see me! I was upstairs in the embroidery department yesterday. If you're reading this post, please let me know who you are! Stop back in the shop, or visit my blog. I'd love to see how your ripple is going.

I went to your blog to see the other picture -- stunning -- what are you doing to make them stack up like that? (I'm using the "Soft Waves" pattern so many are using but am not getting that effect.)

I love the contrast between the coral/orange colors and the blues & deep green -- fresh and contemporary. Do keep posting as you get more done!

i love the way your blanket is coming along. the colours and the pattern both look GREAT> my favourite part is the border between each row.

Are you crocheting into the back loop instead of both? Is that what gives that lovely ridge?

nice color selection!

Thanks for your comments! I'm using the back loop only on the first row of new color, then both loops for the second row.

HI Devvy. It was me!! I was in town visiting my dad and came up to see you but you were very busy with 2 customers and one waiting so I thought I'd come back later but didn't make it!! Sorry. My dad lives on Market st and I will be visiting again in the next week or 2. I promise I will come by and say hi! I wanted to ask you about the US vs UK terminology and if the dc in the ripple patt is a tr which I found to be the case. My email is ozhulagal@bigpond.com
