When it comes to crocheting, gloves are great, purses are fun (pics of those coming), but for me, there just really is nothing like working on, and then finishing an afghan.
Introducing the Cloudy Day Ripple Throw, which I crocheted using a free pattern from Red Heart. It now belongs to a dear friend of mine, as she was in need of an afghan to keep up at her new cabin by the lake.
I'm quite pleased with the way it worked up. I'm actually not always all that keen on the look of ripple afghans, but I like how this pattern alternates the shell pattern stripes with the straight double crochet stripes to mix things up a bit.
The blanket worked up quickly, and I enjoyed making it.
In light of all that, I went ahead and listed it as a custom-order option in the etsy shop here.
