I'm joining in on the fun. I can't remember how I found this blog but I do remember I was immediately drooling over all the lovely rippliciousness!
For some inexplicable reason I caught the ripple bug last year. Must have seen a particularly pretty one and I was hooked (ahem). I didn't start one straight away, I just began complusively collecting ripple patterns in anticipation.
Then my dad decided to send me all my mom's stash (she died a few years back) - boxes and boxes of the stuff! It's still coming. Mostly odd balls of this and that but I did find enough Roly-Sport (lovely squishie stuff) in different colours to finally make my very own ripple afghan. I started it on New Year's Day - haven't progressed very far because I'm also using Mom's yarn to make scarves and hats for all the family and I'd like to get them all done this year.
The picture shows one complete repeat. It's a simple 5 up, 5 down, 5 at the points, worked in the back loop ripple. And I love it.
