My first ripple!

My daughter goes to university next summer and she chose the colours for this blanket. I am loving making it!

Looking for some help on this blog

Hello Ripplers! Now that I am back to a 8-5 job and dating again after my divorce (yeah!) I need some help with this blog.

As you may have noticed that there are some comments on your posts that are -weird- or just links to bogus sites.

I can't delete comments once they have been posted, and I would rather not have to turn on moderation, but the only other option is to only allow comments from people in the group and that seems too exclusive.

Would someone like to moderate the comments? What will happen is that the comments will come to your email and then you have to say "yeah or nay". Pretty easy, but best done by someone that is on the web more than I am able to be lately.

First one that volunteers gets the job.

Thanks for reading and happy rippling!

Look at how cute!!

Just click on this little rattie and it will take you to the website. This lady makes small instruments and has her trained rats take pictures with them. :-) How cute is that?!?!

I wonder if I could get Daisy to do this?

The website is in Russian, I think, so you will have to have google translate it for you.

I came across this website and it is too cute!! you have to go there and look at these cuties

A blue and white ripple with granny squares from the Netherlands.

Hurray! The rippled afghan for our youngest son is finnished!

I discovered the grannysquares-pattern while I was crocheting this one...

...and loved these too! So I combined the two patterns.
The squares fit inbetween the ripples very nice and so I also made the sides into the stitch that you use in granny squares.

I used a 100% acrylic yarn, cheap but very strong (I use it for years for knitting too) and easy to go into the washing machine.
But what now? What will I do in those free minutes that I used to ripple?
Hmm.... I must admit;

Now I stardet a super big granny to become a blanket for myself. I choose the same yarn, but in the collors sand and white. I don't know exactly how it will look finaly, I just make up a pattern during the process.
Have a nice week, with lots of ripplin'time!
