Hello! I'm another newbie to the Ripple-Along. I found the project from my SP9's blog, after she sent me a cute set of crochet hooks of my own, and I've been following you all avidly for weeks now -- everyone has such fantastic projects! I really want to crochet a ripple afghan of my own (maybe one like this eventually, though probably a pillow cover or baby blanket to start out with), and there's just one little glitch... I have no idea how to crochet! I'm a knitter but I have never seemed to be able to wrap my head around crocheting. You'd think it'd be in my blood since my mother crochets constantly and my late grandmother -- who is actually the inspiration for me to make a ripple afghan -- was never without her Red Heart Super Saver close to hand. I was wondering if any of you might happen to be in or around Chicago, and interested in helping get someone else off the ground?
I can't wait to have something charming and striped of my own to post! Have yarn, will travel!
