Yay, I'm here!




This blog inspired me to start the first ripple I've made since I was a teenager (I'm 48 now), when I made one from a kit in graduated shades of avocado (it would have coordinated with the refrigerators of the time). I've been crocheting and knitting sporadically since I was a kid, and have made several grannyghans over the last couple of years, but had kind of forgotten about ripples. This site (and some others I found through this one) reminded me of how great these could look. That said, the one I'm making is not at all elegant, but has colors selected by my 13-year old son. He wanted neon green and black; I added orange and a bit of yellow to make the rippling more fun for me. Plus, we live in Miami, and green and orange are the school colors of the University of Miami. Go 'Canes! The pictures don't really capture the vividness of the colors, which are the Simply Soft Brites. These were taken about a week or more ago, I'm now starting the fourth repeat. I'll post again when it's done.

I saw your completed one just now and searched around to see if you shared where you found the pattern. If you read this please let us know.

Peace!

I haven't made a ripple in a similarly long time either. Your colors inspire me to consider doing another one. The black certainly does make it contemporary. My ripple (a giant) was in Dazzleaire yarn in pink, hot pink and white. No, the two pinks don't really go together, but I still have it and use it after all these years.
