A WIP and an FO

That's a Work In Progress, and a Finished Object. Just in case you didn't know... :P This is a Baby Scrap Ripple Ghan I have been working on. I started this one a looooooong time ago. I don't even remember when. I pulled it out and decided to finish it. I wanted to do only medium brighter colors (about the first five colors of the afghan from the bottom...) but I didn't have many left like that so I guess since it's a 'scrapghan' anyway I will have to improvise and make it work... I think it looks pretty good for all scraps. Incidentally this is my own afghan design. You can find it in 40 Favorite Ripple Afghans, by Leisure Arts. It is the afghan entitled 'Baby Love'. You can also find it in the booklet, 'Ripples for Baby', also by Leisure Arts. I originally designed it to use up scraps, and with the white in between. But when they bought the design, they did it their own way....
And here is a Baby Cotton Hat I tested for Mimi. :D Thanks for letting me test, Mimi. You can see Mimi's in the link.
And a close-up of the flower. I had wanted to make this for my niece, but it turned out too small. So I don't know what I will do with it now. Wait until someone I know has a baby girl, I guess. ;P Have a Nice Day everyone....

The ripple blanket design is cool! did they give you a copy of the book and the booklet? Is your design the one on the cover of the booklet? The one you're making now is turning out pretty well too...

The baby hat is cute...I was afraid it would turn out a bit small, I wouldn't know too. But I did try it on a baby once, and it was short so I had already added a few more rounds to the pattern.
Thanks Tina, for testing it and for the nice pics!

I thought it was my guage, but I did test it before I started. Maybe cotton shrinks? I don't know. It is still an adorable hat, and will fit a newborn instead of 3-6 months, is all. ;)

Yes, that is my design on the front (of the Baby Ripples booklet). And it is on the back of the book, too. :p I should send you a copy. I can't believe I haven't yet.

Thanks for stopping by Mimi and for letting me test for you.

Very pretty afghan. I think my favorite ghans are the scrapghans...they're always so bright and colorful. I just put the book on my Amazon wishlist. I just love it!!

The hat, is so cute too. Really really adorable. Beautiful design!!
