Mind if i join you?

Hello everyone, thanks for letting me join the madness *smile* My name is Stacey and I have a rippling problem. This is my blanket at about 7 or 8 days. This is all stash yarn. I also spin so there is a lot of my own hand dyed, hand spun yarn in there. What a fun project and a great way to use up those little skeins of yarn.

I'm not a big fan of bright colors so I didn't have anything like that in my stash, and since I want this to be a totally stash project my ripple is more earth tone than rainbow colored. I love watching every one's progress and I can't wait to see all the finished ripples. I'm using a pattern out of the harmony guides 300 Crochet Stitches. I've already spied out a couple of patterns for my next ripples, this thing is addictive!

I've cross posted to my blog if you'd like to learn more about me.

Thanks! I mainly wear browns, blues and greens and my home is pretty much decorated in these so this will work out perfectly for me. I'm planing to make another one in shades of pink for my daughters room after I finish this one. They are so quick! *smile*

Very pretty. I was wondering if we would see some hand-spun ripples here!

very nice colours indeed. they remind me of 1970's colour pallets, in a good way. good luck!

Thanks! The colors kinda say retro 70's to me too! I love it :)

Oh, I truly love your colors! So pretty! I wish I had enough "leftover" yarn that was that pretty to make an afghan.
