So I started #2 and #3. I had to set aside #2(so no pictures yet) because 3 is a baby blanket for a friend that is due in October and I would love to give it to her early. I'm using the Soft Waves pattern, a size G hook and Caron SS. I'm using white and then the brites for the blue and the green. I'm thinking that I will need 12 repeats, so with 4 done I'm a third of the way done.
I'm hoping to be able to blog more often. You can read about why I have been busy at my blog:)
All the ripples on this blog are looking fabulous! I love seeing all the different combos everyone, so please keep them coming...

I am in love with my ripple. The colors are so warm and refreshing at the same time. It makes me happy to look at it, touch it. But I am hating those ends. I always try to avoid projects with a lot of color changes for that reason. This is one project that is worth it. It was supposed to be 10 colors and I left one out, the teal. Now I have to figure out if I should just skip it or work it in somewhere. The colors are named after food, grape, honey, chocolate, berry, bordeaux, so I get hungry every time I look at it... :D I am supposed to be doing laundry, so I have to go. Just could not wait to share!
Don't know why I'm talking like a Pirate today...maybe because I feel like I found a treasure yesterday. Was at Hobby Lobby for a refill on my Sugar & Cream yarns, and saw Leisure Arts books were 30% off.
Here's how far my cotton ripple has gotten:
It truly is no-end-in-sight looking now!
It's big enough to cover my legs, which was nice yesterday as it was a bit cool in the shade. I sat in my patio lounge chair and worked on a couple of rows. This is one cozy blanket for warm weather. Can't wait to continue.
