I started it last Wednesday. I really didn't have much of a plan, which may explain my color choices. I have been wanting to make a ripple afghan since I started crocheting. My first thought was, "Wow, what a great use of leftover yarn." followed closely by my second though,"Yeah right, there is no way I am crocheting a wool blanket. Not in this house!" How in the world do you keep it clean? A wool sweater I can handle but a wool afghan. I know my limits.
I went with bright, crazy colors with my room in mind. I want to paint my room orange. Brassy, antique orange not crazy bright orange. I imagine turquoise blue accents somewhere and so decided to start with these colors. I wasn't sure of the brown at first but I don't mind it now. I have entitled my work of art as "Child of the 70s afghan". It is large enough to cover my full size bed. There may be more of these in the future. Yes, the ripple is that strong. Before you have even finished the first you are already planning afghan number 2, 3, & 4.
My garden is growing nicely. No issues no problems as of yet and it has been 1 month. I must have enough clover in the yard to keep the rabbits full enough to ignore the garden. I love watching things grow!
