New and Old

Well, I started a BIG queen-size bedspread, oh, 2.5 years ago, my how time flies. I got it 1/3 done and realized there was No Way, so it went into a bag. I thought it would be okay for a nap-ghan, so i sewed the ends in. NOW, I know it must be crocheted back into the pattern from Crochet! May 2009 p. 52, they call Ripple Shells. It must be normal afghan sized instead of bizzarely long and narrow. Here it is, folded in half length-wise:

Meanwhile, among other things I made these reverse twins blankets for baby twins soon to arrive:

Kawaii Ripple Scarf

I don't know what it was that made me realize that I had not rippled in years, but I think it had been that long since I've actually checked out this blog and drawn inspiration from all the wonderful projects shown here.

My latest is a scarf that is also inspired by this Kawaii trend that i noticed on Etsy. That is, brightly colored, super girly, often sparkly accessories and what not.

(That's me modeling the scarf)

I made it using Red Heart yarn and a size N Susan Bates hook. I think the thing about ripples that makes them so easy for me to forget is the TIME that's needed to complete something like an afghan. But, with a large hook, small project, and WW yarn- I had this scarf done in a few hours.

It's as bright (if not brighter), but a bit cooler in color, as pictured here and will be listed in my Artfire Studio when I'm done editing the photos for it.
