Ripple the second

Jayne's Soft Waves Ripple in Progress
[Ravelry]

When I finished the first Ripple blanket in July, my sister mentioned that she wanted one in pink and brown, so I made plans to start one for her in the Fall. I fully expected to finish in time to give it to her for Christmas, but the shop ran out of one of the colors I was using. When the yarn arrived, I finished the afghan -- another "lap" size of about 38" x 52". It's the same yarn as the previous Ripple - Cascade 220 Superwash - and I actually washed this one in the washing machine and dried it on the lowest setting in my dryer and it fared very well, becoming noticeably softer. I love this yarn, but as much as I enjoyed it, I think I'm definitely rippled out for a while.

Pink and Brown Soft Waves Ripple

It's in her hands now and she loves it!

There have been other projects on the needles (rather than just the hook) and I'll be happy to share them the first chance I get.

The blanket is beautiful! What's not to love!

Beautiful! It reminds me of the Neopolitan ice cream we used to have when I was little. Lucky sister!

Most excellent ripply blanket!

This is a gorgeous blanket! It looks so cozy! Good work!

That afghan looks yummy, Janet. Mmmm, to be draped in Neapolitan ice cream - only warm!

This is so pretty and sophisticated too. Really love it!

I love my blanket and knowing it was made with loving hands, makes it all the more special! This morning I used it, while everyone was still asleep I have "my" time and read my book curled up with my blanket!

Beautiful. I love the colors.

that pink is the perfect shade to make the combo work beautifully.

it could have gone very wrong if you used, say, "barbie" pink {{{shudder}}}. sorry, not a big pink fan.

It lovely, great colours like neapolitan ice cream!

Cute. It reminds me of Neopolitan Ice Cream!

Very pretty! You've done a lot of rippling!

Beautiful and I love the colors!

I don't like being under someone elses thumb. I'm very supportive of other female artists, especially those trying to make their own statement... trying to do what they want instead of being someone else's Barbie doll.
