WIP Wednesday

Summers Dream Round Ripple



I have done a little bit of work on the round ripple. It still has a ways to go before it will be finished. It has been interesting working on it. I start the new color wherever the old color ends off. So in some places the colors look choppy. It will be a unique afghan when it is finally done. :)




The big one! Here is the Monster Scrappy... This thing is getting huge. And this picture is allready outdated. LOL! I added yellow after the blue that you see here. IT is a pale yellow. I am thinking about a burnt orange color for it soon.





Kyra has made a special request. We have been watching Dr Quinn together all summer. Dorothy, one of the characters in the show always wears these neat crocheted shawls. In the 6th season she wears this nice looking black one with a big hood on it. Kyra, would like me to make one for her. So now I am in the process of trying to figure out a pattern for it. Hopefully I can figure out something soon so she can wear it when the weather actully cools down some. Its still in the 90's here.






 And for Sean, he would like a new hat. So I think I
will make him a sk8ter hat. :)
  So far school has been going well for both of them. Sean normally comes home with a pile of homework. Keeping him busy.........

Oh gosh, that round ripple is gorgeous! Who would have ever thought those colors would go good together? I love that you took a chance - it looks great!

Thanks for taking part in WIP Wednesday.

I made a round ripple for my mom recently and I really enjoyed it! I look forward to seeing the black hooded shawl :)

I posted my own WIP to the list. I am working on a shawl, just starting, but sure won't have a hood. We have a prayer shawl program at my church where the shawls are taken to the sick and those in need. It's just a really simple pattern though.

I came over to see where you live. I guess N. Carolina is too far to drive to crochet together because we're bored. Shoot!

I like your scrappy granny ripple. I have one going myself that I haven't worked on in a long time. I just dragged out my pink popcorn ripple to crochet a few rows tonight. Hope you found something to do too!
