a few more ripples

A few more ripples added, raspberry, quarry and honey, these last three colours have really changed the tone and I'm really starting to like the effect, I was worried whilst on the green ripple that it wasn't really working.  Thank you for the lovely comments, I will post again when I have a few more ripples to share, in the meantime I will be posting entries onto my blog Joshy and Belle -

A completed 12-point round ripple

I comleted this in around 3 nights of crocheting as a birthday gift for my best friend - she loves the colour yellow - I wanted to make it all the light lemony colour but ran out of stash so added the bright yellow around the outside.

I think it still looks nice.

my first ripple

Hello everyone, here is my first ripple so far! I've just started on the blue row. I'm using the soft waves pattern, which took me quite a while to figure out as I was decreasing into one chain, don't ask me why I thought that!!! 

Thanks to everyone who has posted on this blog I've been drooling over the lovely ripples thinking I wish I could do that for so long, until finally I asked for the books for Christmas and just jumped right in, I'm glad I did!

I'm using Rowan Pure Wool in quite a few colours but all the same sort of tone, if that makes sense, and I chained 423 to fit on our kingsize bed. I'll post more photos here and on my blog ( as I do more. 

Thanks everyone for inspiring me, Felicity xx
