2012 Ripple #2 – French Country ?

Does anyone remember what number I assigned the last French Country ripple I finished? Me, neither. I did a quick blog search and learned that, it was number four, back in October!, can you believe it’s been that long?, which means today’s is…

French Country Cinq (Five)

12,506 stitches – 768,074 donated since Jan. 2011

I used more of a dark color, brown, in this one than I have in any of the other French Country ripples. What a difference that makes!

The first three, with only lights and mediums, seem faded in comparison, but I still think all five are pretty, each in its own way.

I have a lot of the TLC Essentials light celery yarn left, so I think I’ll feature it in the next French Country ripple I make. Hopefully it won’t take me another two and a half months to finish it!

P.S. I painted the piano corner yesterday. Yay! No more two-tone wall! Don’t you just love a pristine freshly painted wall? contented sigh. Then DH helped me move a bunch of heavy stuff, (can you say electronic piano?, lighter than the original, but still way more than I can move alone) and we managed to do it without touching the bee-u-tee-ful walls. Today I hope to paint the rest of my room. “My room”, I have to get used to saying that! lol.

    Wow – love the variegated in this one. I shall have to look for it.
    Don’t remember it at Joannes – but if they don’t have it, maybe Hobby Lobby.

    I replied:

    It is a pretty variegated! I hope you find some, but I think it’s rather old. Got mine in a boxful of yarn I found at Sal’s.

    Remember that it’s Red Heart Soft. There’s a Red Heart Super Saver “French Country” that’s blue, yellow and white.

    I agree with jruss95.
    This and #34 I like the colours most of your 5 “Frenchs”

    I replied:

    Silvia – I think #34 is most people’s favorite F.C., but this one gets my vote! 🙂
