Ripple, The Real Thing

After my successful trial swatch, I decided to jump in and get started on the real ripple.  I realized that if I did the starting chain while I was waiting to get Caleb from school, I could get it done and counted without interruption and without Max.  My starting chain was 213 thingys long and it's measuring 58 inches wide.  Obviously, I've gotten a little farther along than just the starting chain!

I love the way the hand dyed yarns look in this and it feels great too.  I'm trying to be random with the stripes, just reaching into the bag and grabbing something, but being random is pretty hard sometimes.  I hope you all have a great weekend, it's supposed to be rainy here.  Sounds perfect for some knitting or crochet with a cup of tea, to me.

LOVE the colors you've chosen. I must of stared at the screen for about a minute just taking in the richness of the colors.

Very pretty! And you'll love it -- about a thousand years ago, one of the first things I ever crocheted was a giant ripple afghan, which is currently seeing service as the dog's pillow next to his bed (I was planning to use it myself this winter, but he beat me to it). Yours should last *forever* and provide endless enjoyment -- and warmth! -- to whoever ends up in possession of it, whether you or someone else. You can't go wrong with a classic ripple afghan!
