I think "Waves of Glory" fits this to a "T", because not everyone will choose to make it in shades of purple.

I had said cascade, but looking closer I think Mermaid might be an even better name.

Picket fence. No matter what color it reminds me of a picket fence surrounded by flowers.

A good name for the afghan: Ruffles and Ripples and Ridges (a take-off on the Ruffles potato chips ad).

Shirley Conley said...

I think Lilac Breeze is a good name for it
