Now on to some confessions. I dithered about joining the ripple-a-long. There is a huge bedspread under construction. I am up to sewing in a zillion threads and joins. Then it will be time to add a lacy border. The pattern has a border but this person finds patterns so very confusing. I like the colours in this work and once I sorted it all out it has been an easy project so far. Please meet my Flowers in a Row afghan. The pattern is from Red Heart with a few alterations.
To finish off I went hunting and found the first ever ripple I did. Long ago I gave my then 6 year old son time to choose some yarns he liked. Basically he chose the brightest rainbow hues ever seen. This was a challenge and I fiddled for hours before I was happy with the effect. The blanket is 15 years old now and the acrylic yarn has certainly seen better days. It lives in storage and hopefully one day it will be loved again. I had no idea how to join and decided that a fringe was the easiest edge. In retrospect I would skip the fringe and stick with a better quality pure wool yarn.
Thanks for stopping by. I will be visiting a lot of blogs over the next night and day. God bless.
