My Great Grandmother made all of us Great Grand kids Ripple Afghans. I was not able to get her pattern before she passed away but I have found the pattern that she used by countless hours of looking on the Internet. I have started one just to use just to use when your sitting on the sofa or chair at home. My sure that I will never get to use it cause my family will hijack it! :-) These are some of my favorite colors as well.
