Ripple Love

This is my first post to the collective blog and I already have one finished afghan under my belt. I named it the Blue Sand Ripple. It's a mish mash of yarns from my stash. There's some Patons Canadians, Red Heart, and some Mainstay. I used SusanB's Easy Ripple Afghan pattern and I just loved it. I loved it so much I decided to use it for another afghan.

For the next blanket I'm using Caron Simply Soft. The colours I'm using are Dark Country Blue, Country Blue, Dark Sage, Sage, and Off-White. I was a little disappointed with the colour Sage as I wanted something more muted, but I think I can live with the end result.

I'm so in love with ripples right now I have more yarn coming for a third blanket. This time I'll be using some Red Heart with Patons Canadiana. And after much lusting after, I finally ordered the book 200 Ripple Stitch Patterns. I really don't foresee the ripple love ending anytime soon. :-)

I love Susan B.'s pattern. People seem to be having a lot of trouble with the 200 ripples book. Apparently there are lots of errors in the patterns (according to the reviews on Amazon), so be sure to search for corrections before you tackle one.
