Ripple Stitch swatch - finished

I used up all the scrap yarn I'd gathered to crochet my ripple stitch swatch, then I went to two different stores looking for more of that yarn. Neither place had any, so I decided to call it a day and weave in all the ends and be done with it. I learned how to crochet the ripple stitch and how to change colors, so the swatch-making exercise was successful.

All I have left of the yarn are 4 little hen's-egg-size orbs. Sam declared the blanket the perfect size for him to use while lying on the sofa, so it belongs to him now.

He's right. It is the perfect size. Good job on learning to crochet.

Perfect! Now you'll be all set when you're ready to start the "real thing". :0)

That's a very big swatch, but it looks like you made a very happy boy, there, too!

I'm having a similar problem with finding yarn to finish a project.

I love the colorway to the afghan.

The boys are adorable. I love the way Sam has the blanket wrapped around him. How old are they?
