I haven't posted for a long time because I keep getting distracted from my ripple afghan by various charity projects. However, I have been trying to work ripples into those projects as well. So far, I have made this colorful preemie ripple:
I worked out the striping scheme myself before I started, so it isn't random. All the yarn used is Caron Simply Soft. I used an H hook and the "soft waves" ripple pattern. However, it took an hour to weave in all the ends, so future preemie ripples will probably be boring monotones that I can make a little more efficiently!
