The Ripple, She is Slow
Jumping on the wave pattern bandwagon, I've been rippling for almost a month, yet it seems like I haven't done much at all. Only 11 colors so far (2 rows per color). I can partially blame the slow progress on how naive I was when I tried to determine how much yarn I would need to make a queen-size blanket. I now have another huge bag of yarn and can finally continue on my way. I'm using Knit Picks shine worsted yarn, which is a cotton/modal blend and is machine washable. Except for the two first rows, which I'm intending to always stick on the end of the bed that you don't really see.
My sister-in-law, Leah - also a rippler here - got me started on the ripple-along. She agreed that the dips in the waves are the best parts. It's just more fun than the rest of the pattern, and I look forward to them. But maybe she was just humoring me...
When I am not rippling, I am cooking, and you can check out those disasters at my blog.
