I'm Lovin' Muddy Waters

Muddy Waters and my Shadow!

Yep...I'm lovin' my Muddy Waters Ripple throw!

I finished the simple border this week.   

And finally the sun is shining to get some good photos.  

See my shadow!  

The border is just three rows of double crochet (US).  

Nice and easy and it simply enhances the ripple pattern.

Flowing down the Stairs...

I had fun outside with my ripple throw staging it for my photos.  

Running water....

It "sort of" looks like a "waterfall" doesn't it?

It's like a brook edged with green grass....

Muddy Waters and the cool, green grass of summer...

As I mentioned before this throw is going into our new travel van (previously blogged about here and here).  

It's a good size too....about 43 inches by 59 inches.  It covers my body very comfortable.  

Oh, boy, now I have to decide what will be my next crochet project.   

What will it be?

I've been printing some cute free crochet patterns off of Ravelry.  Maybe I will pick one of those.

So glad you stopped by to visit me!  

I hope you have a lovely day.

Oh, I forgot to mention...today is Flag Day here in the USA.  Mine is flying proudly.

I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the republic for which it stands, one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all."

  1. Beautiful throw! I love the colors and the pattern. I haven't crocheted a throw in ages but yours makes me want to make one now! Thanks for sharing!

  2. Congratulations on another beautifully finished project! I love your travel van, it is a great way to see our great country. I am definitely going to look for my old crochet hooks in the fall and get something going again. xo,

  3. This is one of my favorites that you've done. I love the blues and browns together. It's really nice, Sandy. Love the picture of it coming down the stairs too.

  4. WOWWW!!! I love this beautifull throw!

    Lovely blanket and will be great for the new van. ( Did I miss something? Have you blogged about this new acquisition or is this the same one you took to Alaska?). ....but where is the blanket for Hubby? You'd better get moving on THAT my girl !!!

  6. It perfect for you next journey. But, where are you off to this summer. You are going to have so much fun in your new mode of transporation. I can't wait to travel with you. Great job on Muddy Waters.

  7. Hello Sandy, that is a gorgeous piece, I love the colour combination and the way you call it and describe it.;)) That blue is such a lovely colour tone.;)

  8. Oh, I like this very much. I think the picture taken on the steps is very cool, too! Good work.

  9. Nicely done, Sandy! Great photo of Muddy Waters flowing down the stairs. Enjoy your summer road travels :-)
