Emily's Round Ripple

Emily, my new daughter-in-law received this ripple for Christmas. It matches their main sofa. This was made from Hobby Lobby's I Love This Yarn!. Colors were: #20 Ivory, #320 Sea Blue and #103 Antique Teal. I used a H Hook.

Maleah's Round Ripple for Christmas

This was for Maleah for Christmas. Taking the picture against the green tile took from the color. Maleah has red hair and looks terrific in green. Again I used Hobby Lobby's I Love This Yarn in: #130 Dark Olive, #140 Mid Green and #20 Ivory. I used a H hook.

06 Blissful Knitted Afghan for Dennis

From my favorite Big Book of Quick Knit Afghans, I made for Dennis #06 Blissful. I used Hobby Lobby's I Love This Yarn in #160 Brown. I had ordered a darker brown online, but they must have substituted this brown. It turned out lovely though I had already made Jeff's from this same color. This was extra long since Dennis is 6'4".

Josh's Arkansas Round Ripple

This was for Josh for Christmas. He's a big fan of Arkansas. We had also gotten him an Arkansas Jacket so I used the black to match his other gift. Again I used Hobby Lobby's I Love this Yarn in #50 Cranberry and # 30 Black. This was made with a H hook.

Justin's Michigan Round Ripple

Justin is a giant Michigan fan even they just suffered a loss. This was for Christmas, only he didn't like the gold color. Have you noticed that most sweatshirts, and hats have Michigan with more of a yellow? So needless to say the day after Christmas We went to Hobby Lobby and bought the yarn to make him a Blue and yellow round ripple. (sigh).

This one is made from Hobby Lobby's I Love This Yarn!! in #156 SunGold and # 90 Navy. A G hook.

#05 Twilight Afghan for Jeff

I didn't have time to post and actually finished my last afghan at 12:30PM on Christmas Eve, so now I am playing catch-up with my posting.

#05 Twilight from the Big Book of Quick Knit Afghans was a fun pattern. I made this from Hobby Lobby's I Love This Yarn. The Color is a soft coffee, #160 Brown, and using Size 17 circular needles. It turned out so soft. I made it extra long.

Round Ripples For The Twins

My twin grandson's room is done in Western decor. I wanted to keep them similar, but also needed some way to tell the afghans apart. The two round Ripple's had each center just changed, one red and one black.

Both were made from Hobby Lobby's I Love This Yarn. # 40 Red, White and # 30 Black using a G hook.
