Truly, a heat wave in the L.A. area at the very time that I am crocheting a giant afghan that sits in my lap and makes me too warm to begin with. Quelle surprise.
After working on it for less than a week, I have been through two rounds of each color. It reminds me of the Caribbean, not that I have ever been there. It measures about 13 1/2" so far. I figure I will make it about 6 1/2' in length so I am about 1/6 of the way there. I should have it finished by 2010.
I was so excited about sharing photos with you that I didn't straighten the ripple properly before I took the photo and couldn't wait for daylight, so these are horrible flashed shots (the greens that look like avocado in this shot are really lime and the darkest colours are navy and chocolate)...
... don't care - I'm in love :D
Especially with the edging. It took me quite a few attempts to get this to look the way I wanted it to, but the crocheting/frogging/crocheting/frogging cycle was worth it in the end. I love the hot pink/red combo and the scallops.
Thanks to everyone who is participating in this Ripple Along!! You have all been so inspiring and your beautiful afghans have kept me crocheting when I started to run out of steam. Thank you, thank you!!
Now it's back to quilts and my somewhat neglected blog :)
