June's Afghan, a Ripple, Has Been Started

I am keeping on track for an afghan a month (crocheted, or knitted) so that I have enough for each family member. June's afghan is a ripple for one of my 6 brothers. This one is in Lionbrand Woolease (soft!) with a J hook and using Strata from 200 Ripple Stitch Patterns. I had started this exact color sequence in the stitch pattern called Lavender Fields, but didn't like the holey gaps that come from skipping stitches. And, the pattern was full of errors - easy enough to figure out and correct, but I just didn't like it. I decided it wasn't worth sucking it up for a full afghan's worth, so I tore it out.

I can't post this to my regular site because this particular brother visits my website and will know it is for him.

I finished the May afghan; a non-ripple one for my mom. I think it turned out very nice.

wow there's no way I could finish an afghan a month. Maybe baby sized.. but not adult. Your work is beautiful.
