Ripple-me Senseless!

The weather here in SoCal has temporarily cooled off a bit so I managed to get in a few more rows on my Ripple Afghan.

This is the newest obsession project that I am working on from the Feb/March issue of Crochet Today. It is still small enough to fit in a plastic zipper bag and stuff into my purse. The single crochet ribbing at the bottom was pretty boring but after that, the crochet is a lot more fun! I changed the colors to ones I liked better, Tan, Natural and Spa Blue.

My yarn-snobbery has taken a beating what with the Caron Simply Brites afghan and now this vest out of Lustersheen. I'll take my Humble Pie a la mode, thank you.

The color combination is lovely. I hope you will post the finished project.

Yeah, I'm with you on the yarn snobbery sporting a black eye -- I have to say, I'm really digging on the Caron Simply Soft. It's... well, soft! And I'll be able to throw the afghan in the washer to wash off cat fur when it's done! Can't beat that with a stick.

I'm not sure I'm ready to commit to Red Heart Super Saver, but I'm a lot less snooty now!

Also, I really like the colors you chose for the ripple top. I hope you'll post pictures of your progress and the FO!

The ripple top is even more gorgeous in person. Have a great ripplin' weekend!
