This afghan features the oh-so-yummy ripple stitch (you can find a nice ripple stitch crochet tutorial from Lucy at the Attic24 blog.)
Yarn is Caron’s ‘Simply Soft’ in ‘Sunshine’ (aka gold), black, and white (with a gray Red Heart with Love for framing.)
Also, a great big salute to the Iowa State Hawkeyes and their fans – for their tradition of doing a “Hawkeye Wave” at the end of the first quarter of every home game. This ritual entails the audience of the entire stadium turning to wave to the patients at the nearby University of Iowa Children’s Hospital.
Lastly, a nod to my two big Hawkeye-fan friends, Michael & Maria. You can take the fans out of Iowa, but you’ll never take the Hawkeye spirit out of the fans! 🙂
