well I finished my copy cat afghan. I did this afghan with my Granny-Along group I joined. I got the inspiration for this afghn from another member there. She did make her afghan differant than mine but she still inspired me with the colors and the concept. I did add another row all the way around the afghan so it would be bigger. My daughter needed it to go around her she said. I love the way it turned out. I didnt add little flowers in the midst of it all because my daughter liked it the way it was.
I did the squares in the traditional granny pattern. I love the yellow going around all the squares its like a ribbon running through out. The colors are just great.
Im going to keep making more grannies to see how I can put them all together. Im going to make the squares a differant pattern through out. Ive already made several squares and thought I might as well go ahead and see if they turn out as great as I think they will. Thanks to everyone for the inspirations and all the fun a crochet freak like me can have.

Heres a updated pic of my attempt at doing a Ripple sample its the soft wave from Jan Eatons book 200 Ripples. I love the book but Im not great at math and you need to do math:)
This is my sample of the soft wave. I really like the pattern Im just not sure how to put the colors together. As I go along Ill post here. And you let me know if it looks cool or not! Deal?
I joined the Ripple-Along to be able to do this afghan. I get so much inspiration from all the ripples. You should all go by and check them out they are awesome. I saw on Dees site CrochetWithDee that she just recieved the book 200 Ripple Patterns as well. I hope she enjoys the book as much as I have. There are so many patterns to choose from and so much fun to have. I decided on the soft waves because I picked up on the pattern right away.
Im going to make this afghan out of Carons Simply Soft yarn and Im just trying to decide what colors to choose from. I have the really brite colors or the more muted colors now the decision has to be made. Im going to work up a few samples and Ill post them here for you all to see.
Have a great day!
