Very striking colors. The black really makes the already bright colors really pop. I like it a lot. Is it crochet?

Thank you, Mark! It is crochet.

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

I love this!!! I'm a big fan of color!!!! Inspires me to use a little rainbow in some of my works. Great work too by the way. I should knit an afghan like this......

Thank you! I had been working with dark, somewhat monotone, colors so this was a breath of fresh air. I've had many requests for this afghan.

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 crocheted this afghan using Lucy's Neat Ripple Pattern at 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.

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.

Books, knitting, cats, fountain pens...Life is Good.

Thank you, Joe! You can find the pattern at There are several ripple patterns out there but I like this one the best.

Love the colors. A lot of gray days around here lately. Looking at your afghan would add sunlight to anyone's day!!
