I am brand new to the Ripple along. I am really enjoying seeing all the great ripple blankets that are in process. I heard about the Ripple along from a student in my beginning crochet class at my shop in East Lansing. At the time I was also wondering what to do for a wedding gift for the daughter of friends who had been so very generous with my daughter and son in law when they got married last September. I don't know the bride and groom well, but the parents have been good friends of my husband since highschool. All I know is it has to be special. So! The idea dawned during crochet class. A classic ripple blanket in organic cotton (Inca from Henry's Attic). I had never done a ripple blanket before, but I have crocheted most of my life. I am very pleased with how it is turning out - it is very soft! I also am impressed with how quickly it is going. I made the foundation chain last Thursday, worked all the way to Chicago and back, and have a goal of of full stripe (all three colors) every day. The wedding is June 23. I hope I make it!
Here is a close up detail. The colors are richer than my monitor shows - but all natural - the cotton grows that way!
