Look EmmaApple! I did it!

These are for you, EmmaApple. I appreciate that you explained to me in your comments section, how to make these rippled wrist/hand warmers. I made these 14 rows long because my hubby wants extra coverage for his wrists while birdwatching with binoculars.

The best part is that they worked up quickly and easily! I hope to make more soon.

Edited 12/28/08: Another pair for a friend of mine. I am loving these! What things do our fellow ripplers make (other than afghans, blankets, etc.)?

It's finished! Hooray!!!

This is the completed ripple for my niece's Christmas gift. It's made with Caron Eco Soft (WalMart replaced Simply Soft with this and it feels about the same, plus it is made from recycled soda bottles). The colors are soft mint (which isn't minty at all), twig, and chocolate. Other than the twig part, the colors sound tasty, don't they? It finished out to about 38 inches by 48 inches.
I only seem to be able to complete one ripple afghan a year and here is this year's. I made this for my dh, who wanted a lapghan. It came out approximately 41"x48". I used 7 different colors of Caron Simply Soft. I chose colors at random for the first color repeat, and then used that pattern 4 more times to complete the afghan. He used it this morning and pronounced it perfect, so I am a happy camper!

Scarf WIP

One more ripple for today, this one is a work in process. A neon pink and gray ripple scarf for me.

It's not quite finished because I ran out of wool on the last 2 rows but it will be soon I hope. I need it badly, its getting very very very cold in old NYC.

Let me know what you think! Blogged here Gauze Celebre.

Ripple Gloves

Hi, just thought I would show all you lovely ripplers the fingerless ripple gloves I made up for my friend Zoe for Christmas.

Made from 3 colours of Cascade 220, worsted and a 4.25mm hook, I basically just did a 32 (+2) chain swatch of Susan B.'s Ripple pattern (link on the sidebar), and sewed up the sides leaving a hole for the thumb. They were really quick too, I finished both in one night.

They turned out ok I think. I am going to make a matching ripple scarf to go with them.

Let me know what you think!

Ripple Completed

The blog is working really great now! Thanks Susan for fixing it!

Well, I ran out of the scraps I had that were long enough to work across this afghan so I called it finished last night. Then I was up early this morning, could not sleep, and worked on the border until I got tired. I added two rounds of dc in Caron One Pounder in the color Taupe. It was a nice neutral color to go with all the others that were in the ghan. I used the "J" hook for this project and Susan B's Easy Ripple pattern.
I have another ripple type project planned but it won't be started until after the holiday.
