Fuzzy Ripple Afghan


I’m really excited about my current project. It’s for my youngest sister’s high school graduation. When my middle sister graduated from high school, I was in my knitting phase, and I knitted her a very “unique” afghan. She likes it, even with all of its unevenness. 🙂 My youngest sister is graduating in June, so we went to Hobby Lobby over the Christmas break, and she picked out the yarn out of which she wants her blanket to be made. Here’s a picture of the WIP:

Its my first time to do a ripple, and I like it. This yarn is really forgiving because its so fuzzy, so you can’t see that my holes are a little big at the bends. I’m using Yarn Bee Frosting and a J hook. I like the yarn and the ripple pattern. The yarn is nice and soft to work with, and the pattern is simple enough that it doesn’t take full concentration. One slightly bad thing is that if you mess up, it’s really hard to rip out, because of the fuzziness of the yarn. It’s going the be pretty large, so I figure if I start now, there’s a possibility I’ll have it done by the time she comes back to the States to start college. 🙂
