Ripple of the Week #9

A few months ago I got a phone call from one of the clerks at the tiny thrift store in town. She wanted to know if I could use a bunch of novelty yarn scraps in my blankets. As usual I said, “Sure!”, and I went and got the yarn the very next day.

I lived with the yarn for a while, trying to decide how I could include most of it in a single ripple afghan. I eventually chose to alternate single rows of black with single rows of several different pastels and brights. The Fun Fur is in every sixth row.

These highly textured yarns were fun to play with and added a new dimension to my favorite old ripple pattern.
