Since I was without power last Tuesday, I missed blogging about last week’s ripple. You may remember this set of yarns I pulled from a recent Savers’ Haul. I never would have considered using such a deep blue and rust together, except for finding this vintage variegated yarn.
Along with some creme, the yarn has become a rather handsome fall ripple.
I think it deserves a better name, don’t you? Do you have any ideas?
Although the variegated yarn seems to be the same thickness as my usual yarns, it gave me more rows per ounce than I had expected. I guess it’s less dense. Anyway, I have two ounces of it left, enough for at least seven rows, the impetus toward yet another ripple!
Edited on Friday, November 11, 2011 – changed name from ‘Rust and Blue’ to ‘Fall Pride’
A special thank you to reader Kathy for suggesting a much better name, Fall Pride, for this blanket. She commented, “It looks patriotic but with the use of the Autumn Colors.” This is especially fitting as today is Veteran’s Day here in the United States, when we honor those who have served in our country’s military.
