New Rippler

Thank you for the invitation. I happy to be crocheting again. It's been a long time since I tried a ripple. I'm glad I started it, and with daughter #3's (Paula) for now. I had acquired some balls of yarn from a relative and thought I'd just use the random colors. It will be a little boys first real bed blanket or a cat throw. I will end up having to buy some other colors to finish it, but I really like rippling now and have visions of dozens of other projects in fabulous colors.

This is the first time I've been able to handle a crochet project after my mastectomy without my chest, arms and hands cramping up. I even went to knitting for awhile (just some simple scarves) just to keep my hands going. I like crocheting and usually always had a project going.

It feels good.

Sooo pretty... That's great that you feel well enought to work on it. I do notice that I can knit for longer than crochet. My elbow and wrist starts hurting if I crochet to much....

Oh Mom That afghan looks great!
I really like the colors and your edges look straight to me.
Mine are a bit wavy, your are much nicer.
