I think I have gone mad, actually a little crochet ripple mad. I
have been resisting the ripple for a long, long time. I love to see it,
I love that you are all obsessed with it and I was not. Until recently I have held
firm and steady, and I have not taken the plunge. Well that is until I
made a visit to one of my favorite blogs, Cozy Things.
You see Kristen made ripple washcloths and towels instead of a big
blanket. She tempted me with the beauty and simplicity of the project,
and again I have to state it wasn't a big blanket, which I do not have
the time or energy for. Kristen is an amazing crocheter, knitter and
crafter. Her blog is a delight, go and give her a visit, I promise you will be amazed, too.
You can get a lot or rippling done when you are sitting on you behind all weekend with a nasty cold. I used your basic Sugar and Cream Cotton yarn. I just chained 39 and went to town. I didn't change colors I let the yarn do all the fun work for me. I am making two more of the cloths above for a little Mother's Day present for my friend Lynda.
The reddish ones are for me. They look great in my kitchen. I looked at several ripple patterns, and ended up using the famous Lucy's of Attic24. I had to give it a few tries as I simply was not reading all of the directions, seems I never learn that lesson. The only thing I changed was to adjust the pattern slightly so it wasn't so wide. Simple, easy, fun.
