I ripple so much slower than all of you, but I wanted to post a quick update. This is my first ever crochet project and I love it. I used the random stripe generator for the four colors and have been following it religiously.
It's a yarn thing. It's a crochet thing. It's sometimes a knit thing too. It's a getting back to the basics thing. It's the discovery of a mindless, escapist, reassuringly repetitive thing. It's a reveling in tradition, let it sooth your soul thing.
