Here's a pic of my first ripple and I guess it's new owner. I started it late last summer after happening upon the ripple along. Since I had never made a crocheted ripple afghan I just used some of the yarn already in my stash. After a few rows of the different colors I did decide to only use brighter bolder colors. As long as it was practical, looked half decent and kept a person warm, I didn't want to spent a lot of time coordinating colors. I've been a quiltmaker for years and would spend so much time choosing fabrics. Then I made my first scrap quilt and that opened a whole new world for me. So many different fabrics that you don't expect to end up looking good together and that goes for yarn also. I guess the beauty is in the eye of the beholder. For my next ripple I have coordinated and chosen totally diffferent colors.
As I mentioned above my cat, Cotton, will probably own this ripple. Ever since there was enough length done, I've had to position it so he could lay on it while I crocheted on it. The longer it got the easier it was for us to share.
I do have a quick question about these blog posts. For some reason my spell check here at blogger is not working. I click on it but nothing happens. I'm not real blog saavy but I know that things can be accidentally changed with the tap of one key. I'm wondering if I've locked up something without even knowing I did. Any pointers that I can check?
