Ripple Blanket

It started innocently enough -- an email exchange regarding NORO Kureyon vs. Patons SWS vs. Plymouth BOKU and ideas for which yarns might yield the best end result for a felted bag. Less than two weeks later, after a swap that worked out much too well in my own favor, I received this from my friend Stacey:

Stacey's Ripple

I love Ripple Blankets but I can't crochet anything beyond a chain. And there's no "sort of" mentioning something to Stacey without getting a gorgeous blanket delivered to you in exactly the colors you had in mind. I mentioned wanting an afghan for my oldest son and while there's currently an ownership dispute between the two boys about this ripple blanket, the intended recipient loves it!

Thank you, Stacey!

Lawdy, these things just take so much work....but one day, I might knit myself a blanket.
