Progress on the Ripples



I'm loving this ripple blanket!  And surprisingly, I'm loving the dk weight yarn and the small hook too.  I've always been afraid of using the smaller yarn and hook because I thought it would be so much more work and take so much more time.  But if it is either of those things, I'm not noticing it.  It's just fun choosing which color should come next, and it feels so delicate compared to the cushy thicker worsted weight yarn I'm accustomed to.

This made me think about finally making something like this with the Snowflake yarn I have stockpiled.  It would work perfectly with this pattern.

But I shall not get ahead of myself this time.  I'm just enjoying this one.  Be in the moment, Pammy Sue!

  8. This blanket is beautiful! When I got my Stylecraft pack I was also worried about how much finer it was than I'd expected - but it works into a beautiful fabric, doesn't it? Love it! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

  9. You're doing a great job on the blanket - great colours. The most commonly used yarn here in Australia is 8ply which is the same as DK or your sportsweight. I'm always amazed at how thick your ww is and can't imagine using it for baby wear. Guess its what you get used to though and WW would work up a bit quicker I imagine. Looking forward to more progress pics. xoxox

    Thanks!

  14. Jean, the pattern she is talking about is the Ice Cream Cone Afghan here: http://dbriese.blogspot.com/2012/06/happy-fridaypattern-search.html

    The title of her blog where she says the pattern is found is about the ice cream afghan in the post right before that one, not the afghan she found in a garage sale. Send me an email if you want that one...pammysue8 (at) gmail (dot) com, no spaces.
