Cool Waters

I am so excited!  I have finished my first ripple afghan.  I chose blues, greens and a bit of white yarns from Mom's store...erh...stash of yarns.  I love how the colors work with one another.  You feel like you're wrapped beneath a quiet waterfall.  The colors are very soothing.  My boys couldn't wait for it to be finished.  My youngest would actually cuddle up underneath the afghan while I was crocheting.


You can see I added two rows of single crochet down each side to "tidy it up" a bit.  I think it turned out quite nice.  Maybe a granny ripple is in the works?  I found this pattern (Ripple Afghan) from Ravelry, which linked to this site.

I've updated the link (Ripple Afghan by Janet Jarosh), so hopefully it works now :0). This pattern was found on Ravelry. I used a size G hook with worsted weight acrylics.

The yarn was from my mother's "stash", so unfortunately I don't have a list. I was just helping her use up what she had. :0) I stuck with blues and greens and threw in some white. I do remember some yarn being variegated though.
