reach out your hand if your cup be empty if your cup be full may it be again

I've been strongly inspired of late by the amazing ripple afghan here, and decided to go for it (with consultation from my yarn mistress Jess) with Mission Falls 1824 Wool, because all of the colors go together in a weird and wonderful way.
I found a link somewhere to a random stripe generator and came up with a look I rather like as inspiration. Then we poked around the Google to find a ripple stitch pattern we liked, and came up with this one. But my meager attempt to increase the number of stitches from 100 to 160 ended poorly.
And now it's frogged and I have to start again. So, poll time.


E2A:
Sorry, Linda, it wasn't Bruce Springsteen quoted in the last post/non-post title. It was Cher. I never claimed not to have eclectic taste in music.

I love the stripe generator colors.. can't wait to see it in progress. I always hate the first 2 or more rows of crochet because that's where I screw it up big time by crochetting into the wrong chain stitch or something equally stupid. Good luck!

I love the idea of the poll. I freely admit to being the one person who voted that "crochet sucks," but only because I haven't managed to get the hang of it yet.

It is so cruel of you to give me yet another reason to buy a lot of yarn.

I don;t knit or crochet, but crochet rocks my ass of, and although I wouldn;t buy much knitted wear, crochet gets my jack every time.
