WIPW: Work-In-Progress Wednesday - Grannies and Ripples take 2 & Baby Blanket


I'm currently working on 3 projects! All of them are afghans/blankets. One is the knitting.... and I swear i've only added on a couple rows since the last time I took a picture, so there's no way i'm taking a picture again any time soon.

The next thing is the Grannies and Ripples take 2 blanket. I'm still not sure about the bold colors, but it's coming along rather nicely!


And just today, I started making another baby blanket for my donation. {Check out more information about donating baby blankets here.}


I know there's not much too it yet, but hopefully it'll look really pretty once it is all done! I hope.

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

    1. Thanks!! I can't wait to see both of them a little more completed... I hope the baby blanket looks as well as it does in my head.

  2. I love the bright colors, it's very cheery. Wonderful and meaningful cause also. Another group does this, but the name of the group escapes me at the moment. Keep up the good work.

    1. Oh i'll have to be on the look out for that group! I'd love to help them out as well.

  3. I think the bold colours really make the blanket shine! The pinks and oranges in the variegated yarn really pop once the solid coloured ripples are adjacent to them. Lovely work!

    And it looks like a very pretty start to your white lacy blanket .

  4. I just started a granny square sampler afghan. It is my first big foray into crochet. I love your take on both grannies and ripples.

  5. I love the grannies and ripples together. I'm getting ready to start a granny bedspread, which is going to be a huge project, but I've never tried the granny ripple before. Looks great!

  6. Grannies + Ripples, Love it! I think the colors will work well together once finished and you are looking at a whole blanket instead of a small piece. Keep up the good work!!

    1. I'm hoping they'll look well together once it's finished. I'm going to be symmetrical from the point on where i'm at. I hope the beige stripe will be big enough to really off set the boldness of the pink and orange.

  8. That granny and ripple looks so interesting, can't wait to see it finished! It'll be a long time before I knit another blanket, lol. I don't mind crocheting them because crochet goes much faster, but knit blankets and me parted ways a while ago!

    1. I agree. Especially for just learning how to knit, it's a really big project and it takes me forever to complete one row.

    1. Thanks! I was using the bold colors for slippers, so I hope it'll work with a big afghan!

  10. I LOVE the bold colors on your "take two"!!! The beige color will help it look great in any room, and the brights will definitely bring cheer!

    1. Thanks! While the first granny and ripples afghan I made was more subdue colors, and solid stripes... i'm really enjoying the opposite here, bold and granny stripes!

  11. I like the idea of a granny ripple. I will have to keep that idea in mind for the next afghan I make.
