Another new rippler here!

Hi everyone! I'm so happy to be rippling along with all of you talented people. I've enjoyed watching everyone's beautiful projects grow and evolve. My ripple has proven a challenge to photograph - the colors don't show quite right, and on top of that, one of the smaller, furrier members of my family has claimed it for hers and hers alone.

I'm using a pattern copied from one of my husband's grandmother's afghans - she didn't remember how she had made it, but after a few false starts, we managed to figure it out. It is made of some no-name cotton-blend yarn I found in Chinatown for next to nothing. I wanted a blanket that will add weight but not a lot of warmth to the twin bed in our guest room, so I've been working quite loosely. I'm pretty pleased with how it's turning out so far.

The colors reminded me of maple flowers, and now that they're coming together, the ripples are giving off a great seventies vibe. I'm thinking of finishing it with a fringe of little macramé owls - how fun would that be?

Again, I'd just like to say how happy I am to be part of this project! Go ripples go!

I like it. Photoshop is great for getting accurate colors when your camera won't. :-)
And a fringe with beads sounds like a wonderful kitty toy!

ok, love the colours, the ripples are great, but can i have your feline friend over for a visit? i'm dying to be adopted by one, but it's just not happening with the little monster, littlest apartment... but if it's just for a visit...
