Ripple of the Week #18

Mixed Vegetables

I may have some sense of how a blanket will look while I’m designing it, but I don’t really know until it’s been made. The crocheting of it often brings a surprise. I love this ripple’s exuberant colors and the interplay of the orange and yellow in the variegated yarn with the stripes of those same colors that lie on either side of the variegated. It’s a very happy, vibrant blanket!

Considering all the changes the plans for this afghan went through, it could have ended up looking many other ways. I’m glad I, eventually, chose this look.

    My reply: “Thanks for the comments on my Mixed Veggies. I poked my head in over at Scotty’s Place. (that’s her blog of crocheting and yummy looking recipes) Had a fun looksee. Sorry, I may have left a little drool spot on that Pink Lemonaide Pie recipe! LOL!!”

    “Love it!
    Your color choices are simply beautiful, I have one of the books with this pattern in it.
    Hmmmmmmmm,Maybe I should try it.”

    I replied: “I love my Mixed Veggies too! I played around with several different stripe and color combos before settling on this one. Sometimes all the fiddling is really worth it!
    As you can imagine, I highly recommend this ripple pattern. If you have any questions about it, I’ll do my best to answer them.”
