Whoops, I did it again!

Another ripple in the works. All wool this time (unlike the last one which was all cotton), and in bright rainbow colours. I tried for a random colour placememt, but last night just had to frog it. I have learnt enough about myself to know that random is not my friend. A gentle graduated change between colours is, however, the way to my heart.

Let's hope this one is a little quicker than the last!

Thanks Dawn! and....

Susan/ZenKnit here.... Just want to thank Dawn for keeping us all together. Applause!!!

Hopefully my stepping in will be a seamless thing. Just like you all here, I LOVE ripples. So much so that I have another one to show you.

Today I finished another blanket for Project Little Lambs. This one is just like the blues and greens one I previously shared, that being, the pattern warm waves from the 200 Ripple Stitches book. Again, a chain of 120 to start.

At first I just started crocheting in colors that I thought looked nice together, but then decided to do a series of repeating patterns. I think it looks nice, so much so that it will be hard to part with this one. It has a lot of loving energy in it.

Call for New Ripple Mistress!

Anybody interested? I am simply overwhelmed with other projects and the ripple blog deserves better than I have to currently give. Pop me an email if you're up for the challenge of reviving the rippliness.

Ripple in Greens and Blues

Used the pattern warm waves from 200 Ripple Stitch Patterns. More details on my blog, ZenKnit

New ripple!

I really really don't need another ripple blanket, but I couldn't help myself. This one is crazy bright, and all wool - unlike the all cotton blues and greens of the last one. I really hope that this cures me for a while - I'm getting RSI!

Mystery Project

Hi all, its been awhile since I've had anything to post. I have started this "mystery project" for one of my friends who is having a baby. When I get further along on my project, I won't be able to report any more on it till the end, which I am hoping will go fairly fast, so that my friend won't know EXACTLY what I am making. Although I know these photos might give her a partial idea:

What I CAN report is that the yarn being used (so far) is Bernat Softee Baby in "Pale Blue" and "Funny Prints". If I like the finished project, I will also be making a couple more for some of my co-workers who are soon-to-be first time Grandma's, and maybe even a couple more for my new "Grand-twins" (pictured below)! So far, it has been a fun crochet project.

And the magic number is...


Here's my progress on the Noah's Ark ripple. I know. It doesn't look too exciting yet. But it will.

Why is the magic number 3? Everything on this ripple is done in threes. From the number of stitches between peaks to the number of half doubles used to create the decrease, it's all threes. Plus, I have three of these to make. I bet I'm sick of the pattern by then.

Would it be crazy to take a break from the ripple and start the add ons?
