Kind of obsessed!

I looked at a bunch of crochet afghan patterns yesterday after finishing the green Ripple and even cast on one but pulled it out and decided to start another Ripple – I know, I’m a bit obsessed with them right now but the good thing is that they’re quick to crochet and this is the 3rd one in a row that I’m making from stash. This yarn has been in my stash for years … a batch of 10 skeins bought on sale of course. Don’t you love the tweedy look of it?!

Same free Ripple pattern but I did chain 146 for this one with an H hook. Crocheting in the back loop which creates that deeper texture.

Yarn is Cascade 220 superwash wool

I really should be binding quilts but after another loss by the Lightning tonight, I just felt like sitting and since I don’t have any quilts ready for hand-stitching the binding, that meant more crochet. I’m a bit discouraged that after a great season, they’re in danger of being eliminated in the first round of the playoffs.


  1. Love this yarn as well. The ripple pattern is so easy to work and watch TV at the same time. And it looks like a lot of work too. I did one years ago using two strands of different colors of yarn. I used several colors within the afghan. It was a Vanna White pattern and her yarn. It turned out beautiful. It would be a good way to use up yarn stash too.

  2. Those of us quilters all like more color, but not everyone loves the collage of colors. I’m sure there’s someone out there who will find this to be refreshingly relaxing as they watch tv, sit in a dialysis chair, or just need a hug that a stranger out there cares about them.
