Cant...stop...rippling...

If I had known how addictive this would be, maybe I would have waited to finish the many other projects that I need to finish for friends or family. Oh well, too late now. The ripple has taken over my life. I did almost nothing but ripple yesterday, and here's my progress so far.

I love this project! Every time I look at it, I can't believe I'm actually creating it.

Of course, most of the reason it's so lovely is the yarn. I love how the cotton makes each stitch stand out, and this soft waves pattern is truly ingenious. It makes up absolutely the most lovely ripple pattern ever.
Since this is a baby blanket, I'm nearly finished, but I'm actually sad to have to put it away soon and get back to all my other boring ole projects. *sigh* I guess I'll have to make another one...

I'm also really loving all the new ripples that have cropped up in the last few days since I've fallen into my ripple coma. Great job everyone! They're all stunning!

Here's one last picture...

Your colors are lovely. What type of yarn are you using? From looking at the label in the photo, it is not familiar to me. Thanks!

I love it!! I have to hurry up and figure this decrease out so I can start. Although it sounds like I'd better finish my sweater first.

Your colors are beautiful.

That is beautiful! How is it to crochet with cotton? I am still trying to decide what yarn to use - your pictures are making me think cotton!

Thanks everyone! Kristin, I have fallen in love with cotton because it's the only thing that's comfortable to use year round in Houston. Also cotton just really shows off crochet stitches, I think. It can be tough on the hands until you get used to it, but it's SO worth it. The mercerized cotton really shows off the stitches best.

Your ripple is heavenly! I'm thinking about doing a cotton one, too, because of the climate where we live. I love the sheen on yours and the lovely soft-but-strong colours.
