I thought I would give you all a break this week from hearing about my ongoing adventures crocheting the Ripples of Joy afghan from Baby Afghans, but then I changed my mind and decided I have to talk about it some more. Sorry.
But I'm just so dang proud of this!
The colors! The ripples! The size!
|Nearly 40" in diameter so far!|
I went ahead and purchased an extra skein of blue in case I decide to get incredibly crazy and work THREE repeats of the colors instead of two. We'll see. It will be about 50" across if I just work the rest of the yellow and then crochet the blue and green rows. That's a decent-sized lap blanket, and it would look nice on the back of our couch.
But the idea of making this into a full-size afghan really appeals to me because that would be a lot of joy. I'm going to try to work on this a lot more this weekend to see how much more joy I can stand before I decide to finish this up, or to keep on going.
In the meantime, here's a video tutorial about working in the back loops only for you left-handed hookers. I posted the right-handed video last week, and I certainly don't want to leave anyone out. There's plenty of crochet education for everyone, and the Leisure Arts YouTube channel is here to help!
Did you watch it? Now you know how to work in the back loops left-handed! Even if you're not left-handed! Nothing can stop you from ambidextrously crocheting lovely ripply projects!
Man, you're about to have the best weekend ever.
