It's been a while since I last posted, not because I haven't been rippling away, but because I have been unable to finish anything! I wanted to wait until this one was done because it is part of a set of two ripples for a friend who is having twins. The other is going to be a pastel version of the same thing - she is having one girl and one boy.
It's a yarn thing. It's a crochet thing. It's sometimes a knit thing too. It's a getting back to the basics thing. It's the discovery of a mindless, escapist, reassuringly repetitive thing. It's a reveling in tradition, let it sooth your soul thing.
