  1. There's one posted in post #10 http://project-angel-kisses.150m.com/roundripple.html I think that's the one a lot of people use. Have fun!
  2. Cynthia, if it makes you feel any better, I ALWAYS have more than one thing going. I think a lot of us feel the same way, it gets too boring doing just one thing. I have different tote bags that I use for my projects and keep my pattern, yarn and work in progress in the bag and I always make sure to write hook size down on my pattern if I've changed it. Then when I pick that project back up, it seems to go so much faster to finish it and it's a pleasure to finish. Best of luck with your surgery!!
  3. I know I didn't get in on this from the beginning, but thought I'd share my round ripple I made for a Grandbaby due in May. I am happy with how this turned out. My son and daughter-in-law actually have a ROUND BABY BED! I used Bernat Softee Chunky in white, yellow and blue and the Gentle Waves Ripple Pattern. I've done other RR's but I like this one for a baby because it has less holes that they can get their fingers stuck in. Thanks for looking! clickable
  4. sueb1054, I caught the post about your children being spaced a little farther apart than usual. I am the Mom of a 13 year old, 23 year old, 27 and 29 year old. Needless to say, the last one was a "surprise" but oh my gosh, what would we do without her?? I hope everything turns out great for you! I believe things happen for a reason, and one day you'll know exactly why this happened! Joni P.S. Looooooooove everybody's RR's!
  5. Don't know why my picture didn't show up (it couldn't possibly be my fault!) Here it is again. Joni
  6. Everybody's RR's are so nice - I decided to do one for my daughter Emily who just got her own apartment this year. Since her decor will be changing, I used a cream color Simply Soft with 2 strands and an N hook. It went very quickly and I'm so proud that I finished something BIG!
  7. Has anyone found a really good self-striping yarn to make these round ripples? I would like to make one in a regular size (not baby) in blues/mauves. I am close to lots of stores, but I have a hard time just looking at yarn and figuring out what it might do! Also, I don't really care if it's a little pricey - it would be worth it to have something turn out really nice!! Thanks!! Joni
  8. Aussie, yes I crochet left-handed. That's why I taught myself. I literally sat at the computer with my hook and yarn and looked at pictures (a left-handed crochet tutorial) and had to keep stopping to use the mouse and change the screen. Some things are still hard for me. I have to remember that I usually just have to change "left" to "right" or "right" to "left" when I read the directions. I made a baby it's cold outside sweater but I mostly stick to afghans and other easy things. Joni
  9. Here's my sister's round ripple spidey ghan. I feel partially responsible for it, because she stopped crocheting for a long time but her grandson is such a spiderman fan, I told her about this pattern and she made him one for Easter. He LOVED it! P.S. Crochetluvknot - are you a big TK fan? SO AM I!! I'm listening to him right now. I'm jealous you have his avatar! LOL Joni
  10. I'm a leftie. A long time ago, my sister decided she would teach me and my Mom and my other sister how to crochet. We all went to her house and planned on staying the day. She took one look at me trying with my left hand and said.."I can't help you!". It took me about 15 years after that to decide that I really wanted to learn no matter how. I looked on the internet and found a crochet tutorial for left handers....and I was hooked. My husband laughed out loud watching me try to use the mouse and crochet at the same time - but it worked! I think everything is a little harder for us "left
