Oh dear...Addiction rising.

Hi everyone! This is my second update, and I am still newly in love with crochet and rippling =)

At the moment I’m on my 14th colour or 27th row. I’m absolutely loving working with these lovely yarns, and I’m trying to ignore that red row which is just screaming at me to remove it (which I will not!), lol. I’m trying to average out one colour a day which is going well.

I also managed to snap up some nice yarns at the Knit Happens sale (not much left at all!) which will arrive soonish I hope. I’m already having fun thinking about what to do with my leftovers, I can’t wait to try granny squares and maybe some ripple cushions and etc. They didn’t have any Baby Cashmerino or Rowan left but I did get some others that will fit in well hopefully!

Project Specs –
Pattern: Soft Waves from 200 Ripple Stitch Patterns
Yarn – Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino, Jo Sharp Alpaca Silk Georgette, Rowan Cotton Glace
Hook – 4mm
Chains – 219 (double bed size)

PS. And a gratuitous cat shot =P She is loving the rippling action too, just sleeping and hanging out next to me.

On the treasure hunt front, I got my mum rippling too, but she will not post to the blog no matter how much I coax, she’s too shy =P So here’s the start of her ripple cushion (pic taken with permission from her blog) in blues, greens and purples. She also bought a ton of yarn in the sale too so we’ll see what she starts next…neither of us crocheted or knitted much at all before all this madness so it’s funny that we have become so addicted in such a short period of time! I’m sure you know how it is, hehe.

Loving gazing at all your works all day!

I was thinking yours was my favorite color combo! I love your mom's too though.

oooh.. it looks SO nice! good job, thank you very much! i can't wait to get further into mine. it's becoming more of a muted tone blanket, like Alicia's, as oposed to a bright and sunny one like Jane @ Yarnstorm.

It seems like we "see" our ripples ourselves very differently than others do. The appreciator will accept the color choices in a way that's harder to do when you're the one who's making the choice. Red was the right color to use there because you did.

Your ripple is beautiful! I love the red stripe in it. :)
