WIPW: Work-In-Progress Wednesday - Grannies and Ripples


I found a very cute pattern for a baby blanket over at Caron Yarn. However, I do not need to make any more baby blankets for anyone! Shocking, isn't it? So I decided to tackle an afghan. I have yet to decide if this is one for me, or if I will give it away as a gift. However, it'll probably be a gift as I have a million and one afghans!


I started it just this past weekend, and am shocked on how far I have got so far! I am not following the pattern to a T, but I really hope it turns out well. If not, then I know to follow the pattern for another one if I choose to make it.

I am linking this bad boy up over at Tami's WIP, Ambassador Crochet, Yarn Along and The Crochet Way.

You may also link up with me below. :)

    1. Thank you! I thought these colors would go very nicely together. Although I should have got some blue as well to go with the verigated.

  2. Ooh, I don't think I've ever seen granny squares and ripples worked together in quite that fashion. I like it!

    1. Thanks!! I love grannies and I love ripples... so when I saw the pattern for them both together I knew I had to make it!

  3. Very pretty! Thanks for linking to the pattern - I like it a lot. May have to add it to my Ravelry queue. What yarn are you using? I like the Caron Simply Soft and have started a vest using it.

    1. You're very welcome! When I'm finished I'll re-write it to how I changed up the pattern, that is, if it turns out nice.

      I'm using Red Heart :) It was on sale one week and I kind of went crazy!

    2. Sandy commented to you below regarding your link.
      Nancy, I wasn't able to leave you a comment on your blog, as it says you must log in...it's very likely you'll have visitors who aren't wordpress bloggers, thought I'd mention it here so you would know to change your settings. Joining linky's is a great way to get visitors, but if you have your blog blocked against them you're not probably going to get as many folks interested in your blog. Thought by posting this here, someone who is wordpress might be able to pass this information along to Nancy.

    3. Thank you! It's a group blog set up by my sister, and I think she has it set so only the blog members can comment. I'll check in to see about changing that...

    1. Thanks! And you're very welcome for the link. Since I wasn't following the pattern exactly, I had to do a lot of changing around. Hopefully it'll come out just as nice.

  7. Love it, gret colors too. I've started, but never finished a combo like that, joined the squares figures it made a ripple and then wasn't sure the 2nd round of squares would fit it the peaks and valleys. I could envision it, but hadn't ever seen a pattern like it. So, I gave up on the idea.....love seeing yours, proves my little brain was on the right track after all. lol

    1. I know how you feel about envisioning it! I wanted to make this without any half grannies, but after starting it I realized that I couldn't. So now i'm playing around with the pattern to make it work.

    1. I am. After I linked up with others, I wanted to try to make my own link. I like having a bunch of ideas and seeing how everyone else is doing on hand. So yes, you can also link up here if you want.
