Baby Round Ripple Almost Done!

I'm coming down to the wire on the baby round ripple that I'm testing a pattern for.  It's still buckling quite a bit so I'm not convinced I didn't screw up somewhere, but it looks ok if I stretch and smooth it out. Perhaps it will do better after it's washed.

Looks great when I stretch and flatten it

Not so much 'as is'

I've done the next round of white and about three rounds of cornmeal/yellow since these photos were taken, so only about two rounds left to finish.

I think I'll still try again with a small swatch to see if I can pinpoint anything I may have done wrong, but I've already started over once so don't know if it will make any difference.  I do like the pattern, but this little quirk has given me the incentive to try making up my own round ripple pattern.

Are you working on something special this week?

To play along on Work-in-Progress Wednesday, make your blog post for Wednesday be about something you're working on - some type of craft, renovation project, landscaping, even that novel you're writing. You can play along even if it’s not Wednesday; I leave each WIP up until the following week. Copy the code below Rosie's picture and paste it into your blog post so that others can follow too, and see the rest of the projects that are posted here.

Make sure to click 'You are next' below to add your link so my readers can follow it to your blog post.

That is gorgeous! I haven't seen work I've liked so much since my grandmother passed. She could work with the really fine cotton.

My stuff tends to sort of bunch a bit as I work but I think it's from turning it and holding it as I work. With the way you stretched it, it's looking good.

It looks pretty with the colors you chose.
I'm back after a week off. No crocheting, but a lot of quilting going on.

Love it! I always get my ripples off "course" somehow (either skip a stitch or add a stitch or something goes askew). Do you use markers? Markers are such a pain and get all tangled up in my work, what is your favorite type and how do you use them?

I really like this pattern! I haven't had time to crochet in several weeks... hopefully I'll be able to get back into it soon.
