Ripples in Autumn Prairie Colors

I have been meaning to make a post to introduce myself for awhile and haven't had a chance until now.
I first saw this craft-along on my friend Teabird's blog and I knew it would be a lot of fun.
last week the '200 Ripple Stitch Patterns' book found its way into my mail box.
I wanted to knit the feather fan scarf that is on page 83 or a shawl of dimple waves but I am still a little fearful of lace just yet so I dusted off my crochet hook and
I have been having a lot of fun taking apart an old UFO chevron afghan I started many years ago that had some very bad uneven edges and lots of errors in it.

This simple wave pattern is so addicting and mesmerizing.
It is like a few moments of meditation each day as I crochet a few rows.
All the leftover wool yarn from my stash are colors that remind me of the tall grass prairie in the autumn time near our home in central Illinois.

This is one of our family members.
His name is Little Joe Zander; also know as the random yarn color generator.

Very meditative -- I have to trek around NYC today in the rain and cold, but already I'm thinking about being home tonight and crocheting another row or two. I like your colors and the picture of the fall grasses.
