Although many of the afghans I see in thrift stores are far too “well-loved”, I do find a few that are in excellent condition. As you may already know, I buy some to give to children entering foster care, but some I buy just for their yarn, like this over six-foot square (that’s a yard-stick) blanket I found it at Sal’s for only, get this, $5.00! LOL!
This baby isn’t just Big, but Heavy, weighing over Seven Pounds! That’s more than enough yarn to make Four of my ripples for the foster kids. This is a double-layered blanket knitted with a double strand of yarn! It looks like it’s made from tubes of fabric knitted on a Knifty Knitter or a similar loom.
Of course, its colors make me think about Christmas, which is only two months away. I want to unravel this quickly so I can turn it into Candy Cane Ripples ~ Spearmint green and white ones, and peppermint red and white ones!!
