I get to cross something off of my 37 List! I have completed my Rosey Ripple Afghan!
I started this way back in summer as a way to break up the monotony of the Rose Field Throw (which is no where close to being complete). I am giving it to my Mom for Christmas. It's only a lap throw... it's about the size of a baby blanket, really. I didn't make it wide enough to be anything else. But it would be good to curl up on the couch with a book and keep the tootsies and legs warm... and my mom does that a lot.
I used the Churchmouse Vintage Crocheted Blanket pattern. It's a paid pattern, but worth it. I will absolutely use it again. I've never been a big fan of ripple afghans, but this one won me over. Every time I worked on it in public, it definitely got attention.
I used Caron Simply Soft in Pistachio, Persimmon, Country Peach, and Off White.
It's very possible that I used a larger hook when I started it than I did finishing it, that or the fact that I was working amigurumi at the end but not at the beginning (my tension is much tighter with ami, so it probably carried over).... the beginning is a little looser than the end, but it's not incredibly noticeable. I don't think so anyway.
I think the Rose Field Throw will take much, much longer to finish. I'm still contemplating just making it a pillow cover. I have a laundry list of other projects I'm dying to do. =) As usual.
