It’s pretty ironic that it’s taken me this long (the eighth in my series) to get around to making a peppermint ripple, considering that it’s the most favored flavor of candy cane, and to think that I made it from scrap balls, too! gasp.
Between my scrap ball stash and those that had just arrived in the Big Bag o’ Yarn, I thought I would have more than enough red, green and white yarns to make a ripple. I figured out that I only needed five ounces of greens and about ten ounces each of reds and whites. Actual weighing showed that I was an ounce short on medium greens.
That was a good excuse to include a few rows, just five, of Caron Christmas Glitter, a dark green yarn with a fine silver thread. I like a little bling!
I must tell you, as I crocheted Peppermint, I was struck, bam!, with an idea for another granny project! It will use all my red and green mini scrap balls, those that are too small to crochet even one row in a ripple.
This will be the third granny that I have in the works. Ooops! But, sometimes, you know, you’ve just gotta go-with-the-creative-flow! It’s going to be so cute! You’ll see…
Must finish Candy Cane ripples first.
