So yesterday I just jumped in and started. I'm using my own pattern, deviating from the previous color arrangement I used in my test piece.
Decided to go with a double row of dc instead of alternating dc/sc, similar in appearance to most people's on the blog here. I'll post my pattern soon--it's easy.
I like everyone's ripples here--I am very inspired by all the creative people out there in yarn-land. Opal has made so many of these it makes my head spin!!! My objective is to make a summer weight blanket. I love the weight of the Sugar & Cream after washing and shrinking, and I love the way it drapes. So in spite of other projects still unfinished, I started. It's been fun so far!
