That is a gorgeous bit of crochet. I really like the soft ripple effect as I've not seen it before. I may have to keep it in mind for a future project. I hope your friend enjoys it very much.

Brilliant, beautiful work!

Brilliant, beautiful work! Wow! Really well put together. Looks like a LOT of yarn changes. How did you do this? Did you knit it or crochet it? Really beautiful work. The colors are so perfect. Congratulations!

Thank you so much, Tom! I

Thank you so much, Tom! I crocheted this afghan using Lucy's Neat Ripple Pattern at http://attic24.typepad.com/weblog/neat-ripple-pattern.html. I changed the color every two rows so there are a total of 55 stripes (110 rows) plus one round of making the afghan square and then two rounds of half double crochet. I quickly learned on other afghans to weave in the ends as you go along.

It's beautiful. A rainbow is just what you need on a miserable winter's day.
