I just Love! how the green variegated stripes in the center of this blanket seem to vibrate. If I’d known they could do that, I probably would have crocheted several more variegated stripes in its ends too. I suppose it’s just as well; that may have been too much of a good thing.
I am so happy that my second blanket made with this vintage yarn is prettier than my first! That is the only blanket I’ve ever given a frowney face in my Ravelry project pages.
This tangy-looking ripple (DH says it could be called Sour Apple!) topped the tall stack of blankets I bagged for delivery to the library. It was especially important that all the Christmasy red, green and white ones got there in time for the DCF social worker’s pick-up yesterday, so foster children can get them by Christmas.
Arggh. I wish it had occurred to me to take a picture! Lime, Sour Cherry, Christmas Candy, Peppermint, Wintergreen, Spearmint, and Strawberry, there was so much cheerful comforting smooshy goodness gathered into one Big clear plastic bag!! I can’t help but grin when I think about the broad smiles I hope the blankets generate.
Phew, I’ve finished eleven candy cane ripples since the beginning of November!!
Although it’s been alot of fun to rev my crochet engine to its top speed, I’m more than ready to return to my normal ripple a week production, with a French Country ripple thrown in here and there for good measure. Since I’ve already matched four other candy cane flavors to color combos, I’m going to crochet them before calling the series complete.
You know, on second thought, I’d better not let my production slow just yet; it’s time for me to do some Christmas knitting!
