I can hardly tell you how excited I am to have finished this, my first big crochet project! I've learned SO much - how to read a pattern (if it's really basic!), that I love love love beautiful yarns in natural fibres (the nicest one I found was an alpaca/merino blend - heavenly soft and light. I'd also love to try cotton and silk.) and that it's really hard to keep going on Project One when you have started dreaming about Project Two!
I was so excited about sharing photos with you that I didn't straighten the ripple properly before I took the photo and couldn't wait for daylight, so these are horrible flashed shots (the greens that look like avocado in this shot are really lime and the darkest colours are navy and chocolate)...
... don't care - I'm in love :D
Especially with the edging. It took me quite a few attempts to get this to look the way I wanted it to, but the crocheting/frogging/crocheting/frogging cycle was worth it in the end. I love the hot pink/red combo and the scallops.
Thanks to everyone who is participating in this Ripple Along!! You have all been so inspiring and your beautiful afghans have kept me crocheting when I started to run out of steam. Thank you, thank you!!
Now it's back to quilts and my somewhat neglected blog :)
