Hello, my name is Kelly and I thought I'd post a "hello, my name is..." post as I've been lurking for awhile. I've made a ripple afghan before, double stranded with a large hook, but when I saw all the ripples going around the blog community, I wasn't able to hold out very long.
I learned to crochet a few years ago from a dear friend who gifted me with a beautiful multi colored ripple all done in single crochet. Two years ago I learned how to knit and have been very focused on that as it aggravates my carpel tunnel much less than crochet does. Getting back onto the crochet horse was easier than expected and I've greatly enjoyed working on this project.
Project specs: 12 stitch repeat ripple pattern from a stitch dictionary (from what I can tell it's nearly identical to the Soft Waves pattern); Red Heart "Soft" in 12 colors organized in a rainbow way with two shades of each color; H hook; 255 stitches wide or 7 feet (a good foot wider than I was planning)

I've really enjoyed watching everyone's projects!
