New Rippler

I kept coming back to this site just to drool and then finally decided that I must have a blanket for my very own. Here's a photo of the blanket as of this afternoon (the fuchsia edge is the working edge). I'm using a bunch of worsted weight wools and acrylics and I think I may need a few more colors, but then I'm just going to repeat colors until I run out of yarn. The one stripe I'm not a fan of is the deep green in the middle. I used a chunky weight acrylic thinking it wouldn't really matter and it just looks so bulky. I didn't have the heart to rip it out, though.

I love ripples! I want to make a dozen of these blankets. I will, when I have enough money. It's summer and hot, but I can't wait for the temperatures to fall again so I can cuddle under this growing beast.

Also, feel free to check out my fairly new blog: http://swayswish.blogspot.com

Happy rippling!

OMG, your ripple is just gorgeous. What pattern are you using? I love the color pattern, even with the green.. Nice job!

I don't think the green is really a problem--you'll find that as the ripple grows and grows, your not-so-favorite colors just blend into the festivities and don't stand out anymore. Beautiful work!

Your ripple is great! Don't worry about the green- I think it looks good and you definately dont want to rip out all that work!

I LOVE it! The color selection is great. Do you mind telling me what the pattern is? I love the softer waves.
