Float Away Scarf

This scarf is one of the reasons I was so jacked up about making a ripple blanket. I designed it back in December as my staff project for the spring 2007 Interweave Crochet, and I absolutely loved making it. The yarn is delicious and I dig the ribbed ripple texture.

Here are the specs:

Pattern: My own staff project in the spring 2007 Interweave Crochet (it's in yarn stores now)

Yarn: Austermann Bambou Soft (65% wool, 35% bamboo; 110 yd [100 m]/1 3⁄4 oz [50 g]): #07 teal, 2 balls. Yarn distributed by Skacel.

Hooks: 6mm and 5mm

I'm still working on my ripple blanket, of course. But I travel a lot and it's way too big to take with me. In my travels, though, I do pick up odd balls to play with, and of course they'll end up in the ripple...

Riss' Ripple - Big 'n purdy

Well, here it is. I'd have to say that its about a quarter of the way finished. The big gray stripe is actually a silver and a lighter green. I'm kicking myself for that decision. I still have 5 more colors to add today, and then i'll have done a stripe of every color I have. Then its time to start repeating. Looking at it in these pics makes me regret using the verigated yarns... but it looks beautiful in real life. They don't call out as much attention.

I have all night to ripple too, as the bf is closing tonight. He's actually been suprisingly supportive of this endeavor.

Well... back to the ripplage.
