Memories



This is the inspiration for my learning how to ripple. I grew up with this 'ghan my mom made way before i was born. It was always hanging on the top of the couch. I always loved the style. (not the color) it was the 70's lol i knew one day i was going to learn how to make something like this. hmmm maybe i could find some funky yarn like that and give to my kids. Notice that its on the couch in 79 and 83. probably tons more if i really looked. i just saw these in my book and had to scan them.

So cute! Hey back in 79 I was a senior in high school. I had already gifted an ack-rylic granny square afghan in brown and cream to my godmother. She still has it too! I wish I had a photo of it. She would probably think it more than a little strange if I showed up and took a pic of it now.

Your kids might feel about your ripple or another afghan when they grow up! That's so neat.
