I tried out three new ripple patterns in November!
My Express V-Stitch Ripple – “V is for Victory”,
Jacob’s Ladder Ripple – “Bobble-less #2”,
and Eyelet Ripple – “Iris Garden”. . .
were all part of the Ripple Mania CAL organized by Marie Segares, crochet designer and author of the Underground Crafter blog. I entered them in the CAL’s giveaway hoping, hoping, hoping that I might win one of the incredible prizes gathered for Saturday’s drawing!!
Well, I won not just one, but FIVE prizes! Whoo-whee!! Five wonderful ripple pattern books from Leisure Arts:
1. 40 Favorite Ripple Afghans (the book’s Ravelry page), 2. Rippling Effects (Ravelry) 3. Beauty of the Earth Afghans, 4. Vanna’s Choice Color It Beautiful Afghans (Ravelry), and 5. Ripple Afghans to Crochet (Ravelry).
Since I already have 40 Favorite Ripple Afghans and Rippling Effects in my crochet library, I decided to spread the ripple joy around and offered them back to Marie so she can draw another winner or two from among the CAL’s entries. It’ll be fun to see how the new winner(s) react(s), since the prize drawing was supposedly completed on Saturday! tee hee.
I’m anxious to get my hands on the other three books. My interest is particularly piqued by the “Ocean Waves” ripple on the front cover of Beauty of the Earth Afghans and the “Peaceful Ripple“ in Ripple Afghans to Crochet, but I can hardly wait to moon over all my new ripple patterns!!! Soon. They’ll be here soon.
Oh, was that the mailman I just heard?. . . I’d better go check the box!
