Rippling

Little does he know, but my husband has a new job --
selecting yarn-color combinations.

He bought me these four for Christmas --
celery, evergreen, cranberry and mixed berries.

I've always wanted to make a ripple blanket, and
after three false starts, I'm well on my way.

It is so easy to do, increasing by threes at the peak,
and decreasing by threes at the valleys.
It is also addicting, as is evident
by how far I've gotten in a few short days.

I had planned on keeping the finished afghan
in our living room, but while working on it in bed,
I realized it will work well with our comforters too.

Ooooh..I love this. Great color combination. I really need to learn to crochet. I took a tunisian crochet class which was fun...but I would love to do a ripple blanket some day. I am putting this on my to learn list!
