Yet Another Round Ripple Started

I finished the other test pattern for the baby round ripple and will post pics for that probably on Friday.  Today's WIP is another one I started in colors I had in my stash.  I wanted to use up some yarn I already had on hand, so grabbed light sage, aran, linen and country rose to see how that combination would look.

I decided to use a larger crochet hook for this second piece and I like it much better.  I think the original pattern called for an H hook and I was going to move up to the I, but I think it's tucked away in a bag with another project, so I grabbed the J hook.  The H hook made for a much closer-knit piece and to me quite heavy, almost rigid.  Crocheting with the J hook makes it much looser and more flexible, but I think the I hook would work just as nicely.

So far I think it's going to look ok.  Not sure the colors are suited for a baby, so maybe I'll work it up as a lapghan or for someone in a wheelchair.

I'm further along now - I have a second strip of the sage green and started on the next sequence of linen - and  I think it looks even better than this photo shows.

Keep an eye on this blog to see how this one turns out!

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.

Very pretty colors. I need to finish up a few things then I'm going to start on one for a Christmas present.

Love the color combination. I used to use a J for almost everything, then got hooked on I. Now J feels too large in my hand. Funny how we're creatures of habit.

You are getting proficient in making these. They look very nice.

Very nice work, yet again. Personally, I am a fan of non-traditional colours for baby, so this looks wonderful!

This is pretty, pretty! I do love the colors. I've been planning one just like this, as my Christmas Afghan this year. Gonna get to it in a bit! LMHO
