It's so darn addictive and so relaxing at the same time.
I can't help it, it makes me smile as I watch the ripples take effect even though it's in no way perfect.
It's my first ripple project EVER and I've had to pull it apart twice and restart some rows and I've also had a run in with a ball of yarn that was apparently *without me knowing* made up of some short pieces which ended in me having to knot together some ends to continue the row.
But all in all, I am thrilled and I am already thinking of my next ripple project....some blankets for the kids, to enjoy while they watch tv.
This one is nowhere near big enough for anything other than a pillow for my bed. Oh I can't wait.
For some reason the colors make me think of Ice Cream....a Neopolitan or Chocolate Mint Chip. Mmmmmm!
Well, back to rippling, and if you want to follow along, this is the pattern I am using, it's super easy and once you start, you won't be able to stop. Don't say I didn't warn you.
