Take Two: The Replacement Ripple

Here is the ripple 'ghan I'm intermittently working on, to replace the one hopefully being frogged by Megan.

It's nothing fussy. I'm using that Lion Suede I found at the dollar store (can you believe it?), of which I think I bought about 50 skeins (perhaps more) of it (over the course of a week). I'm working it with my Brittany M hook (wood), doing double crochets. I have a couple projects going at the same time, depending on my mood (I bore easily).

I *am* however, contemplating joining the Granny-along... Look at this...



And whether we are talking about ripples or grannies... please folks, let me know if you encounter the same problem I am. The problem is, I have the intent or thought in my head of who the recipient will be, and then as each project works along, and I see the color combinations and the touch of the yarns, I think I can't part with it... "On second thought... I'll keep it. No one loves my babies like I do..."

The Trick, for me at least to giving away my afghans or quilts is to never give the latest one away... I usually have a afghan or quilt for a year or two, and when the appropriate occassion comes along I don't mind giving one away -- I usually try to keep 3 or 4 in my cupboard so I am always a bit ahead. All my cousins children, now know that for weddings and babies a afghan or quilt is what I give...
