It might be Halloween, but it’s beginning to look alot like Christmas around here. This is the yarn I unraveled from last week’s BIG Heavy Blanket. I included the skein of yarn in this photo to give you some perspective. It’s a large pile of yarn!
Maybe seeing it all in boxes will help. It’s hard to think about Seven Pounds of yarn, isn’t it?!
I’m still imagining it made into several candy-cane striped ripples. I was told red and white or green and white blankets are preferred over red, green, and white ones, so the high ratio of white will work out real well.
I was just given these special additions to my more basic candy cane yarn stash.
The green and the white is Caron Christmas Glitter, which has a fine silver thread, and the tan, which Caron calls “Lace”, is Caron Victorian Christmas Gold, with, of course, a fine golden thread. Kids love ripples made with sparkle and glitz!
I went up to the attic to see what other suitable yarns I might have and found these:
I’m excited about all the different candy cane ripples I can make for foster children!
Oh, there was a little more yarn that came along with the glittery stuff. lol!
The RHSS Aran and Cherry Red (upper left) will probably end up in candy canes too.
As always, variegated yarns will make great starts for ripples! There’s one skein of an unknown spring pastel on the far left. The next two might be Red Heart’s Monet or Watercolor and the pile of five skeins is RHSS Aspen Print. I have to put them all away quickly, so they don’t distract me from my candy cane idea! I figure I have about five weeks to make as many of them as I can.
