~Joining the Ripple Crowd~

A friend and I met today at a yarn shop, and we spent three delicious hours in the store. Gorgeous yarn, decisions, and talking...what a pleasant morning!

I came home with Rowan 100% wool DK to make a ripple afghan!



I am so very happy with the colors, and can't wait to see it worked up! I'll be using the pattern "Soft Waves" from 200 Ripple Stitch Patterns by Jan Eaton. Since the book doesn't give any indication at all of how much yarn to purchase, I don't know if the 11 skeins I've purchased will be sufficient. (I bought two additional skeins in duplicate colors.)

Yep, yep, *rippling* seems to be all the rage. Pretty color combination ~ should be fun to see them waving at you. :o)

Your yarn color choices are gorgeous! I think that your afghan will be stunning. Please post pictures of your progress!

Just the combination of colors in the photo looks so pretty.--I bet they look even better all mixed together in an afghan. (o:
