oooh, I just started a ripple baby blanket! I'm almost a foot in to it. here's the color pattern, so far:




I'll post a better picture of it, when I'm about half way done.

I'm using Baby Bee yarn from Hobby Lobby in mr. sunshine, playtime, and surfmommy.

Oddly enough, I am somewhat working on a crochetted ripple baby blanket.  My mom bought the yarn when I was a baby to make an afghan for me, but never got around to it.  Now I figured that I'll use the yarn to make a blanket for my babies....except I keep getting discouraged, as I am several years away from  getting married (my bf and I are at two different colleges) and we probably won't have kids for  couple years after that.  So I keep putting it off, figuring that I have about 6 years to finish it, and the yarn's been waiting for so long anyways....

I think it was feeling lonely, so here's a picture of my poor, sad, neglected unfinished object.



Maybe I'll start working on it again next week, I have a few other projects to take care of first  Smiley

the label actually says "bulky" but it's no where near that! it isn't quite sport-weight, though. I'm using an I hook, if that gives you any indication to the weight.

crazy_girl, what stitch are you using for your blanket? the texture reminds me of an afghan my mother in law has that her mom made for my husband. mine is just plain DC in the ripple pattern.

Beautiful colors!!! Shocked My colors are dark sage, light sage and frosty green in the red heart super saver I will post a pic on friday. The blanket I am working on is going to be very wide. Like wide enough for a queen size bed.

what a feat, dewbaby! my baby blanket is only ~30-32 inches wide at the moment.

does anyone put a border around a ripple blanket? I'm not sure it would look good, but then again, this is my first ripple blankie!

I won't put a border on mine -- I wouldn't even know where to start on a border with that pattern. 

The stitch is a sc into the back loop of the stitch (wow, it's been so long I had to pull out the directions to remember that).  It's fairly simple, instead of putting it under both threads of the <<<< on top, just put it under the far single yarn.  It feels odd and looks odd at first, but it makes it nicely textured. 


Mine's pretty wide for a baby blanket.  It would do for a throw or even a small twin size bed.
