By way of introduction...

...my name is Molly. I live in Canoga Park, CA and I have just joined the "Ripple Along". I wasn't going to make a ripple afghan or join, for that matter. That is not until I saw the work-in-progress of Oiyi and her Caron Simply Soft Brites ripple. I knew I was done for. So with a nod to her lovely creation, here is the start of mine. I began working on it yesterday and this is what I have accomplished. I started with a chain of 300 and a size H hook. I am using the Wavy Chevrons pattern on page 70 from The Crochet Stitch Bible. I wanted a blanket that would sit at the end of my Queen-size bed and offer a bright accent to a room decorated in whites and off-whites. Well, this sucker hangs over the sides by about a foot on each side! No matter. I can always up-grade to a King.

The things we do for (ripple) love.

I like the way you arranged your ripple -- pretty!

Ha, Ha...Molly! Remember when I urged you to join the Granny Along? I haven't taken the leap to join the Ripple Along yet, but I have been rippling in secret at home! Later....

She sure is strange! said...

Welcome, from another Molly! I have that book, LOVE it, but I'm doing SusanB's Easy Ripple this time around. Will have to try the one you're doing next time around.
