WIPW: Work-In-Progress Wednesday - Grannies and Ripples + Newborn Baby Prop


It's that time again!! And yes, I'm still working on that grannies and ripples afghan! I didn't do much this week, maybe 6 rows total. I know, I've been bad! But I had my book club meeting on Sunday and I needed to finish 200+ pages in my book, so I whipped it out and didn't crochet much.


Since I have you all right here looking at my afghan, I need a bit of creative advice. After the first set of grannies {the ones at the bottom of the picture} I worked 3 rows of green, 3 rows of verigated, and 6 rows of beige. Just now, after the 2nd set of grannies {the ones at the top} I worked 6 rows of beige, and i'm going to work 3 rows of verigated.... when I get to the green, should I work in 6 rows or stay with 3? I'm trying to picture what it would look like in my head with a bigger stripe of green. I think it'll look fine at the ends, but i'm not sure if the smaller stripe of green in the middle will still look okay. So what do you guys think? Remember, that green that i've already made is the middle of the afghan. What I am doing to this side I am going to mirror on the other side.



I also started working on another project for my cousin. She asked me if I could make her something like this for her baby after he's born.


So, I thought i'd give it a try! I did finish the diaper cover... so here's a sneak peak at that. Sorry, I know, something finished is in the work-in-progress post!! What a horrible thing!!! ;)
However, I can say that the hat is still a work-in-progress!! I need to make and sew on about 5 or 6 more of these spikes, and then it should be finished! I hope that it looks as cute as the one in the picture above does.

If you notice, I am using the same colors as the grannies and ripples blanket. When asking my cousin about the colors she wanted, I showed her the grannies and ripples blanket and she loved the beige and green in that! So there we are. I can't wait until it's all finished!

I'm am linked up at Ambassador Crochet and Yarn Along.

I love the idea of having a link up of my own, because I love looking at others projects. So please feel free to link up with me too! No need to grab a button or say you did.

  1. For the grannies and ripples blanket (which is looking very nice), I would say 6 rows for the green since it's going to be in the middle. Love the little baby dinosaur - it's so cute. :)

    1. Thanks! I hope that the baby dinosaur is just as cute as the one in the picture. The spikes are a lot different, but I think it'll still look cute.

  2. I love the afghan. I really can't decide which way I would go! I am thinking either would be fine.

    1. I might pause after 3 rows, to really see if I can take in what it would look like. Hopefully by then I'll see a clear picture.

  3. I'd stay with three. But then I'm partial to big swathes of neutrals that make the colors in between them pop. Either way, it's gorgeous! I'm really enjoying seeing your progress each week :)

    1. I think I will probably stay with three as well. After debating it, the smaller row in the middle would just look off in my opinion.
