Onward to the ripples of the future. All the yarn was in the house by Friday afternoon! Talk about fast service. Wow! These are the colors that made the cut. I'm thinking they will make a very cool blanket for soon-to-be College Dude to wrap up in while he's studying. And a shot of the progress so far~~as of just a few minutes ago. I'm picking the colors pretty much at random. Although I do reserve the right to refuse the color picked if it is too close to the previous one in the line-up. Each stripe is three rows of one color. The blanket will be made up of three 3-row repeats of each color. Each stripe is 1.5 inches deep. There are 17 colors, so the resulting length should be right around 76 inches--perfect for my 6'2" son. Stay tuned for further updates on my ripple obsession.
