June – July 2008
Apparently, this must’ve been one of my more logical days.
Pattern: Granny Ripple Afghan by Janet Jarosh
The Hook: US H/8 – 5.0 mm
a look into the future…
The original location of this pattern was on Project Linus web page on CitiUSA something or other. At the time of this reconstruction post, I could not find the same website.
Today (April, 19, 2019), I googled “Granny Ripple Afghan by Janet Jarosh” and the pattern came up with the pattern-name-link above, on Ravelry – a website I had no knowledge of back in 2008. It links to the Wayback Machine version of the pattern (the one I used). However, upon discovery of a Project Linus website, with crochet patterns, I was unable to find the pattern.
I remember starting this on a Sunday morning, in the lobby of the Mission Inn; Riverside, California. I had stayed overnight with my parents because we had attended the Ott wedding. I had wakened very early – as usual – and descended to the lobby for some early morning crochet & coffee.
The afghan was constructed with leftovers from Hot Tamale (green, red and yellow). Because I ran out, I introduced the grey multicolor on the end.
Apparently, I gifted it to Irma – mom’s first cousin – during a visit. She lives in Texas, so when she visits she is always cold.
