I'm here!

I'm here at last... I started rippling a couple of weeks ago after seeing some amazing ripples over here! I'm following the 'Soft Waves' pattern, using Rowan Classic - Bamboo Soft yarn and a 4.5mm crochet hook. I love the softness of the yarn and the stitch definition that it gives - it's like cotton only much softer. I don't know how long it will take me to complete my blanket, but I won't be finishing it as quickly as some of you guys!

Here's how far I've got...



And this is an earlier photo (in terrible lighting) of just 4 stripes, curled up like a flower!


Keep rippling everybody...

Wow, the yarn colors are great looking! I've never tried Rowan Bamboo because I just figured it wouldn't be soft enough, who knew?

Thanks... yes, they're lovely aren't they! The yarn is well worth checking out - it's kind of cross between soft cotton and silk!
