Baby Round Ripple Afghan

I just received my invitation for this group a few days ago, and I'm so happy to be here! I am so impressed at the beautiful ripples that I see here.

It just so happens that I have been working on the Baby's Round Ripple Afghan for my niece-to-be, Esther. I'm probably about 2/3 way to being finished with it. I did change it just a little bit...I changed the skip 2 sts to skip 1 st, just my personal preference. And I'm adding a few random rows of pink, wherever I think they will look best. When it is all done, I will edge it with a row or two of the off white, and then add little ribbons to the points. I found the pattern from this site:

I still have 3 more babies in our extended families who will need new blankies. So I think I will be rippling along for a while.
Happy rippling to everyone :D

Been Rippling alot

I've been doing alot of rippling. I'm still working on 2 blankets. I ran out of yarn for one and just had to start another.

Here's the white one that I am making for my daughter. It has gotten a little too narrow, so I need to try to add to the sides.

This one is for the hubby and is going well.

This was a baby gift. I added a lining to the back. Talk about a pain....

This is a shirt that I knitted and added a ripple border to the bottom.

Every ones work looks awesome!!!


Sideways Ripple

I started this out for my daughter's twin size bed and did the old "eyeball it" measurement. Bad plan. It was about 4" too narrow. I decided to add a sideways ripple to make it wide enough.

I got 2 skeins of each of the 8 colors of Lion Brand Wool-Ease and I have enough left over to make a baby doll ripple for her doll cradle. :-)

New to group

Hi all, I'm not new to crocheting but new to this group. I've been reading and have been very inspired by all of the wonderful ripples. I have crocheted for many years and have made a ripple a long time ago. Now my crochet hook is itching to get going on a ripple. Spent some time yesterday afternoon doing samples of some different ripple patterns to decide on which one I want to do. Will post a photo afterI get a few rows finished.
