Newbie saying hello

Well, I'm not a newbie crocheter anymore. Or ... well, maybe I still am, I've only been doing this for about three months, so I guess that's still newbie-status, but I've been around the granny-along for a while.

This is my first time posting here, though and this is my very first, own, ripple along. It's about 45 inches wide, and 12 long so far. I'm using acrylics of all kinds, trying to do a solid, then a variegated, a solid and then a variegated etc, etc.

It's not beautiful, but it's kinda FUN, and the colors are summer-y, don't you agree :)

Anyway, hello! Glad to be here.

Cotton Ripple Progress

My Mission Falls cotton ripple is coming along little by little. I introduced the light yellow to it the other night because I'm quickly running out of my other colors and I have 2 skeins of the light you like it or doesn't it go? I will be putting in more of it as I go so right now all you see is 2 rows of it, but what do you think talented ripplers?

I'm amazed how much I like the way this feels as I go along because initially I thought it might be too heavy for an afghan, but not so with this 1894 Mission Falls cotton. It's light and airy, perfect for a cozy 'ghan without being too warm. Something like this would be just the right thing for those of you in warmer climates who still need something to snuggle up under in the AC.
