Ripplin' Along

Today I finished the first third of the ripple blanket for Math Guy~~that's 17 stripes (3 rows each stripe). It is approximately 55 inches wide and 25 inches long. I should wind up with a blanket about 75 inches in length. I've enjoyed working on it so far and will likely remain fairly monogamous until it is finished. What a fun project! I couldn't wait to get to the end of the first 17 rows so I could start the colors over again to see how they worked up this time. My son seems to like it~~he even suggested I make his girlfriend one for her graduation, so she could take it to school with her. Hmmm.....let's see how this one goes first. If I do make one for her, it won't be out of wool, but I could handle some Simply Soft or Red Heart Soft (but I don't think any of our local stores carry it.) Something to keep in mind, though.

ETA: I'm using Cascade 220 Superwash for this 'ghan. If you hurry, WEBS still has it on sale until the 25th of May.
