One More Down

Here is a another completed afghan for my Christmas 2007 project.

crocheted ripple afghan for my brother

This is the Golden Harvest design from the Leisure Arts pamplet, Rippling Effects. 4 colors of Red Heart Super Saver and a size I hook. I modified the pattern for a narrower width, and less rows in each dark brown section. It is a nice stitch, alternating rows of crocheted Vs and then a row of single crochet. It is nice and lacy, but still substantial.

I am down to really needing to order yarns to complete another brother's afghan, and then get back to the squares for my sister's. Since sister's afghan is too fiddly to do while I am with other people talking and such, I plan to take my completed afghans out for a spin - to stitch in ends and show them off.

I am also planning another afghan for myself - a chakra colored one (red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, violet) done up using the new Vanna White yarn. The colors are nice - not clownish and the yarn is really soft. I am going to use it in my Reiki healing work. After that, who knows?

Peace! Susan (aka ZenKnit)

piI love it too. Your family is so lucky with the cozy and pretty gifts! And I cannot wait to see your chakra 'ghan. Will it be a ripple? I also really like the Vanna colors. They're pleasing to the eye, and the yarn is easy to work with.

Thanks for the nice comments ladies. The chakra ghan will be a ripple too. I just haven't decided which one. I am testing some patterns out now and hope to decide soon.

The Vanna yarn is great! So soft!

Really pretty!!! Earthy colors are so beautiful in a subtle way. I guess the blue is part of a varigated. It gives the ripple just a little bit of pizaazz. You just keet turning out beauties, one after another.

I really like the colour combination you used. It sets the pattern off so beautifully. I liked it so much, in fact, that I bought the pattern book! I promise to use different colours, though, LOL!
