The Finished Ripple


I forgot to post about my ripple afghan when I finished it.


I am a terrible blanket/ afghan maker. I lose focus and start about 50 other projects before I ever finish these larger ones. It only took me about 2 and half years to finish... That's really sad. I keep telling myself that the Patchwork will get done way before, yeah right, I'm thinking...and I'm sure you are too.

These are not the best photos, so I'll try to take better ones tomorrow. (the dark colors are actually a darker blue and purple). Yes, I broke my own picture taking rules...no natural light with these to show the true colors.

I'll also try to come up with a name for the new hat, so I can get that pattern posted.

Happy weekend.

  2. I like having a big project to go back to. I have lots of little projects in between that take my fancy but something to always grab when the mood takes me. :)

    1. Me too, but unfortunately the mood doesn't take me too often. I see other bloggers or crocheters on instagram whip out whole patchwork or ripples in about 4 days, and I'm thinking 'wow, I wish I were that disciplined.'

  7. I think the ripple is perfect. I am not a good blanket maker, I too lose interest and my mojo. Glad you are finished it was worth it.

  9. I love this! I'm just about to start a ripple (never made one before...a chevron for someone else and baby blanket ripples, but never the real deal) and love this for inspiration. It's beautiful.

  10. This is one of the reasons I love amigurumi; I can finish a project in a few hours. You're more disciplined than I am; I could never finish a whole blanket:)
