Work in Progress Wednesday

After the kids head off to bed, after tomorrow's lunches are made, backpacks are filled and the kitchen is clean, this is what I look forward to putting my hands on:

Yes! My ripple afghan. I have been working on it for just over a week and I am in love!
Row by row, colour by colour, I watch its cozy warmth grow. I average one colour an evening, more if my bed-pillow isn't calling too loudly!
Look at those pastels! Oh, they make my heart sing. I never get tired of them. Don't they look like a glimpse of spring on these cold Canadian winter days??
I hope to have my blanket done by Valentine's Day. That is the goal I have set for myself. If I keep up my rate of crochet I should make it easily!
What do you think? Do you "ripple?" I'd love to hear from you. And please, become a follower!


  1. I love this. I have not rippled yet! lol. I would love to try. right now I have been busy making wrist warmers and critter hats. this is definitely next on my list. And I'm following now!

  2. I don't ripple, but I wish I did!!! I love it! You are so talented! Did you see I featured your heart bunting on Wednesday? I love your cute projects!

    Thanks for sharing this at my party!

  3. Hi Bronwyn, I love your ripple pattern. I used to make these when I was a kid--my aunt (she was 20 years older than my mom and like a grandma to us!) got us all started. Your gentle ripple is so pretty! I might have to start one again! I am your newest follower and looking forward to seeing more of your blog. Linda

  4. The colors are absolutely perfect!!! I wish I knew how to crochet.. or even knit hehe.

    Have a great day!

  5. It's beautiful! I love those colors. What yarn are you using. I just started a blanket but I'd love to make a ripple one next. I crochet lots of things but have never done a ripple blanket before!

    Thanks for linking up to A Pinteresting Party. I'll be pinning this for when I finish my other blanket. :)

  6. Beautiful! I love the ripple and the colors you chose!


Thanks so much for popping by my little world. I'd love to hear from you. Comments make my day!!
