I ordered the book

Earlier this week I ordered the 200 ripples book from Amazon. My first time to order from them. I'm excited about getting it as I couldn't find it in any of the bookstores in Knoxville and didn't want to have them special order it. Decided it was time to check out Amazon. That may be dangerous to my credit card. LOL I love ripples and have several in mind that I want to make when the tendinitis in my wrist clears up. You all have inspired me with your beautiful work.

This is the neatest idea for a blog! I love your ripples.

I recently ordered the book 200 ripple stitch patterns also. Did you notice the reviews from Amazon that the patterns had errors? I didn't notice if they were talking about knitting or crocheting errors. Does anyone know which pattern the errors are in? I want to make the #8 soft waves afghan. I figured out the dc2tog Yippee. But, now I am a little confused about ROW 2: Ch 3, 2 dc into same st. Not sure what that same st is? No laughing... I just started to crochet and I am self taught! Did anyone find any errors in the soft waves pattern?
Any help is appreciated.
Thank you.

I also ordered the book from Amazon this week. Would also like to know if anyone knows of errors.

P.S. I went back and checked the comments and reviews on Amazon and there are quite a few allegations of errors. Mostly knit, but one reviewer said that she had tried 20 patterns and found errors. Am I gonna wish I hadn't ordered this book?

I'm on a waiting list at the library for this book, and I'm looking forward to it. I'm working on a ripple for my son (kind of fun-ugly neon colors chosen by him), but I always like to have the next project in mind while I'm working on the current project, and I'm hoping for ideas from the book. I've read the Amazon comments about mistakes, too, but hopefully I can figure the patterns out anyway. BTW, how do I go about posting photos of my project on this blog?

I haven't posted in a while but back at the beginning of the ripple along I posted that I have the corrections to the Soft Waves pattern. I've sent it out 60 something times. I would be happy to send the corrections to anyone that needs them. Just email me at m_darcey@yahoo.com. So frustrating to buy a book that doesn't have a errata page somewhere:(
