Another traditionally colored blanket, Christmas Candy made the most of both the small amount of Caron Christmas Glitter green remaining after #57, Peppermint, and a little ball of a green and red variegated. They each have a fine silver thread, which provides a little sparkle. For greater contrast, I put in a few stripes of RHSS Hunter Green, which is so dark it appears black in the photo. That’s one of the yarns from my most recent haul.
I’ve reached the end of the specialty yarns I had most wanted to include in this year’s candy cane ripples. Yes, I said “this year’s”. I wouldn’t mind making a set of candy canes again next year, especially if another big pile of fun and appropriately colored yarns finds its way to me!
I could end the 2011 Candy Cane ripple series here and be very satisfied, but I have a few days remaining before the delivery deadline and so many more ideas! I’m going to try to finish a couple more and have already started on Sour Cherry.
