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!
