You might recognize these colors. The purple, grey and variegated yarns are from the poncho and granny afghan I got a few weeks ago at Savers.
I have some left for future ripples,
plus many mini-scrap balls, which will add to my growing collection of one and two-round granny squares. Leftover bits of yarn aren’t such a bother now that I have a use for them. Yay!
This isn’t a favorite color combination of mine, but I think it’s a pretty blanket all the same!

Here’s how that photo looked before I cropped it. It’s amazingly square considering how I shot it!
I stand on a sturdy old desk chair and hold my camera high overhead so the entire ripple will fit within the camera’s frame. Obviously I can’t see the camera’s LCD screen up there, so I just try to keep the camera parallel to the floor and at least somewhat square to the blanket. Sometimes I manage to get an unbelievably great shot, like this one, within just a few tries, while on other days, especially when it’s an extra-long ripple, I need a lot more patience.
I so easily lop off ripple corners or points and slice off their edges. . . it’s really too bad there’s no good use for such a natural talent! lol.
