I started my six point ripple 3 weeks ago. Our summer here in the SF Bay had been pretty mild, but of course nature figured out I was crocheting under a growing blanket so the past week has been too hot to make much progress. Go figure.

Oh HeHa I love the colors you're using very pretty.

There will always be people who say mean words  because you are different, and sometimes their minds cannot be changed. There are many more people who do not judge others based on how they look or where they are from. THOSE are the people whose WORDS truly matter.

So I'm thinking I will attempt a ripple blanket for my bf mom. I've never done a blanket before though, s how much yarn approx. will I need? I'm thinking at least 5 feet by 6.

it depends on your gauge and which pattern you use. find a pattern you like and it should tell you how much yarn you can expect to use

Oooh, a ripple-a-long!  Cheesy  I'll definitely have to join since I've been working on sort of a ripple afghan for... 5 years I think?  lol.  I'll post a picture Thursday so you all can see the pattern, but it's also my avatar right now too.  It's just a scrap afghan... a REALLY BIG one.  When it's done it'll be big enough to cover a king size bed.  lol

Ok when I laid it out to take the picture, it's a lot narrower than I thought it was... only 62 inches.  But that's still plenty big for a full size bed, and wider than most afghan patterns.  Anyway here's the pics, I had a little spare time this morning:

Then here is the detail shot, where you can sortof see the weird stitch pattern.  It originally came off of one of those little freebies by the yarn.  I no longer have the original pattern, but on Thursday I'll try to remember again how to start it and post it here in case anyone wants it.

That stitch looks so kool. My mom's husband just came to America from Quana and she was telling me that he's going to need a blanket or something to cuddle up with in the cold weather to come. I haven't decided if I am going to do a blanket or a manly poncho.
