That's so awesome!  Thanks for posting that link.  It's a really nice pattern...very easy to get into a flow on it.  Thanks very much for all the nice comments from everyone!

I got the pattern out of Jan Eaton's 200 ripple stitch patterns.  I believe it was called soft waves.   I used knitpicks swish worsted yarn (100% superwash merino wool) in a variety of colors that are not all available anymore....that should give you an idea of how long i've been working on this.  This was sort of the project I worked on when I didn't feel like working on anything else.  As far as size goes, you can get an idea from the width based off my couch.  The length is long enough to cover the average person's toes and still come up to their neck when they are cuddled on the couch.  :-)

Picture time!

4  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Need help with finding a specific stitch pretty please! on: October 08, 2008 06:36:51 AM
So when I was a kid I had a blankie my great grandma crocheted for me.  It was a reversible blanket so that on one side it was pink with blue bobbles and on the other it was blue with pink bobbles.   I found this one linked below which is a reversible shell stitch blanket...same idea and super close to what I'm looking for, but the one I had was bobbles and not shells.   Anybody know how to recreate this?  I've scoured the internet and can't find it anywhere.  I've been trying to recreate it on my own and haven't been successful yet.  I appreciate any help you guys can offer!  Thanks!

edited to add - i made a test swatch of this reversible shell stitch and it is basically like you are crocheting two blankets together...the one i had was not this thick so I don't think it was worked that much like this one.

this whole thread teared me up too.   i just think that is fantastically amazing what you did for him and i agree with what everyone else said that most likely this is really going to help him move on from this place he's been in since your mom left.

8  California / California: South / san diego wedding locations on: March 10, 2008 09:22:01 AM
Anybody have any recommendations of fun/quirky/unusual places to get married in san diego?  I live in Omaha so I'm not too terribly familiar with the area although I've been there a number of times since my sister lives there.   I definitely want the wedding to be outside but it doesn't necessarily have to be on the beach.  I'd appreciate any suggestions!
