Picking my new ripple project








As you saw by my previous post I've finished a ripple and am ready to start another. I think it will be one of the two patterns shown. What is funny is they are both earthtones in their examples which is what I plan to use this time. Wanted to go totally opposite from my other ripple-it's pretty bright. I already had all the yarn pictured but had no plans for using it. It was all bought at the same time trying to corordinate with the varigated color skein.I have many ripple patterns printed from computer searches and the 200 ripple stitch pattern book, but I couldn't find one that excited me right now.I remembered that chevron was another word for ripple so I searched the web with that word and found some more new patterns includung the two above. As soon as I get something going I post a pic .
This quote was on my "365 Days of Joy" perpetual desk calender today.
"IT IS NEITHER WEALTH NOR SPLENDOR, BUT TRANQUILITY AND OCCUPATION THAT GIVES HAPPINESS."--Thomas Jefferson
The general definition of occupation of course is a job, but having my crocheting or quilting, or any other handwork is an occupation which definately gives me tranquility. I felt it very appropriate.

Funny, I'm making a scarf right now using the same variegated yarn shown in the bottom picture. What good taste you have! ;-)
