Here's a really nice site with free crochet patterns. There are only a few but they are very nice and not "cheesy" like so many sites offer. Hope you like it. http://www.mylifetime.com/lifetime-topics-search/article/385
Currently, I am working on a round ripple afghan for my granddaughter's Christmas present. She told me she wanted one when she saw my purple one--purple is what she always claimed was her favorite color. Now, she tells me that her favorite color is PINK! Oh well, she should like it anyway. I'll have it finished in a couple days and I'll post a picture for you.
