Having recently crocheted two ripples, “Cool Lime-Mint” and “Cotton Candy”, from baby-weight yarns, I’m curious to see what others remain in my charity stash. Rather than try to work in the cramped space and heat of the attic, I’ve brought all the boxes of baby yarns outdoors today. It’s quite warm, but cloudy, and there’s a lovely breeze.
I can’t help but notice how much of what I thought was baby yarn is clearly sport:
It’s a little overwhelming to see the rest, all baby yarns, laid out like this:
I’m not looking for anything in particular.
I just want to get a better idea of what’s in all those boxes up in the attic and these pictures will serve as a reminder of what I have to work with.
The row of long skeins across the bottom are all pale variegated yarns.
Looking at this grouping of yarns, I’m quick to imagine a simple ripple of broad blue and yellow stripes.
A darker blue or white would give some contrast.
The sun just appeared and it washed out the colors.
These yarns alone would make a pretty blanket!
It will be so much easier to choose matching weight yarns for blankets now.
I set these sport yarns aside for a baby blanket. I hope there’s enough, one pound total weight. I don’t know, because I’ve never made a ripple with sport-weight yarn before! I do know that it’ll be a bright, fun, non-traditional baby blanket!
