Here's my "Ripples Reading Afghan" that I created. I'm up to about 570-ish stitches right now, and am ripping through my skeins (eeek!).



I only have 3 (100ish yd) skeins left, before I'm forced to do the border.

I like to do personal swaps now and again.

I knit, crochet, and make stitch markers.

Just pm me if you wanna swap. Smiley

Wow! Jeez I'm feeling like the slacker and I supposedly started this thread...  Roll Eyes

Everybody's blankets are looking and sounding like they're coming along great. We need MORE PICTURES!!!!  Grin


This is what I'm working with. I actually compressed this picture horizontally to 66% in photoshop so the picture I put in KnitPro would come out right. The PDF doesn't really fit on my screen without getting all goofy looking anyway so I figured this would work. There will be BIOHAZARD in block letters above and below as well. All in all I'm going for about 5'x7'. Spring break next week so I should be able to get pretty far!

Thanks guys! I'm not quite sure how big it will get yet. When I finish, i'll take the measurements. I'm using the worsted weight yarn from Yarntreehouse.com

That really is a gorgeous afghan Cheesy Any chance of seeing a finished pattern?  Wink (I'm a big fan of your patterns...).

Keeping in topic, I changed my mind about what I wanted to do. I dug out the psychedelic squares one that I started way back when, took those apart and started the garter stitch version (big squares). So far, I have 6 done, one started. *yes, I change my mind quite a bit  Tongue

Knittyknitter,
That afghan is AWESOME!
Any chance of a pattern being available in the near future?

There will be a pattern available in the near future.
After I snatch some more moments to finish up the afghan, the pattern will be available almost immediately...because it's already written out.  Cool

Thanks for the warm-fuzzies!
