Learning to Ripple



My stack of Lamb's Pride Worsted awaits myrippling. I am using it now for some other things that have inspired me, too, while I get better at crocheting. Have been INTENSELY inspired by Mason Dixon book
to begin a log cabin square, which I am working on and will post on my blog soon.
In the meantime, I am practicing learning to crochet-just doing lots of chain stitches and single crochets to try to get my wonky left had to hold the yarn correctly while I crochet with my right. For some reason (maybe because I am learning at a late age, it is hard for me to manipulate the yarn and get the tension, etc correct.
So I have Jan Eaton's Ripple book, and hope to begin soon! I love this blog and check it daily and am so inpsired by all the ripplers I see!

It is not crocheted- it is knitted. Look at http://masondixonkal.blogspot.com/ to see some examples.
