Progressing on the ripple!

Well, it seems that it takes me about an hour per row, so my ripple is going slowly. I don't know if I'm slow or if that's about par, but I kinda wish I could go faster! Oh well. It helps that I recently got addicted to a new TV show and got the DVDs, so now I have an excuse to camp out in front of the TV for 4 hours at a time. :)

I haven't posted about my progress since I had only three stripes, and now I have 14! When I made that last post, I only had three colors (and I was sure I hadn't bought enough yarn). Now I have 8 colors, and two skeins of several of them, so I hope I won't run low. Although I do kind of wish I had started out with a larger hook -- I'm using an I; it was the largest I had -- so that it might be a little bit lighter and drapier. Though I'm certain I'll appreciate the thick warm cosiness of this dense fabric, come January!

I'm using G (I think, it's 4 mm in diameter). I would have liked to use a thicker hook but there was only one kind of thick cotton yarn at the shop and the colors were drab. It does seem to take forever, I take about an hour per row too.

Bright and cheerful, very pretty! I'm using an F hook, and Peaches & Cream cotton for my blanket, am loving the way it feels, and I like the way it is after shrinking!
Yours is gorgeous, keep going!
