I make children’s size ripple afghans, about 36″ x 54″, for a local charity group which gives “comfort packages” to children who are entering the foster care program. They always include a handmade blanket, a huggable stuffed animal and sometimes, another toy or a book.
The group supplies me with yarn periodically and I find a lot more at tag sales and thrift stores. I’ve been able to keep my charity yarn boxes filled with machine washable acrylics. Obviously, I like to keep enough on hand to give me a good assortment of colors for creative play.
(Please note: this does not show my variegated yarns or the 2 boxes of smaller “scrap” balls.)
Right now, I have several skeins of “Hot Red” Red Heart Super Saver yarn. Since this isn’t a favorite shade of mine, I want to use up alot of it at once.
So my next ripple is mostly red with single rows of white to entertain my mind a little as I crochet.
