first ripple project for me this year

For me, 2007 was the year of the ripple. 2008 may be the year of the hexagon blanket for me (so far 2 under my belt), but I needed to touch back into the ripple vibe.

I have a goal of making as many afghans as I can for Project Little Lambs. It will give me an excuse to continue my afghan/blanket crazed ways and an outlet for some of my stash. Beyond that it is a nice way to try out techniques that I may not like for a big project but are cool for a baby/child-sized one.

Here is what I have so far for my 2nd donation. This is a knitted ripple using the pattern Easy Ripple Baby Blanket.

I am using some discontinued Encore Colorspun DK from my stash. CO 142 stitches (34 stitch repeat + 6). Only 3 pattern lines, pretty mindless once I got past the fact that I couldn't keep count of where I was based on where the cast-on tail was. What is really nice is this pattern is totally reversible.
