Creamy ripples

I posted a good while back about my fear of color after frogging two colorful attempts that were not to my liking. This is my current ripple afghan that's about halfway done. I haven't posted a photo of it earlier as it will look about the same from beginning to end as it's all in one color. This is made in Caron's Simply Soft in what they call "off white" but actually looks like a soft yellow. It's Gary's Ripple pattern from the 200 Ripple book and using a Size F hook.

I have a little ADHD and my afghan photo shoot suddenly turned to a Saffy (my manx cat) photo shoot. Had to share her pretty profile with you.


great profile

After all, she IS my crochet buddy. =)

Saffy's gorgeous(I'll bet she's a real lover) and your afghan is really pretty, too. Isn't that simply soft just the greatest feeling yarn?

Very pretty. I think white afghans look so pretty - vintage. And heck, they go with every decor, right?

They're both beautiful: Saffy and the afghan.

How many stitches did you use and what size did your blanket end up at? Both your blanket and kitty are beautiful!
