Once I finished unraveling the ‘Muppet’ thrift store sweater I was so very anxious to see how the yarn would look in its first ripple!
It’s such a thin yarn, I knew that I needed to combine it with a strand of something else. Maybe next time I’ll have some bright pink or orange, but this time I thought I could use up a few little scrap balls of various pastel pink baby yarns!
I like my results. I think Blushing Peaches looks great when seen up close…
as well as from a distance!
My Scrandom Method worked well for planning Blushing Peaches’ stripes. They ate up six scrap balls weighing from one-and-a-half to four ounces and a seven-ounce skein of deep peach or cantaloupe, the blanket’s main color. I only know the real names of two out of the seven yarns, Red Heart Super Saver Light Raspberry and a vintage Sayelle from KMart, Dusty Rose.
Another name, Raspberry Peach Ripple, just occurred to me. Oh dear, as if Blushing Peaches alone weren’t bad enough… and I know we have vanilla ice cream, peaches and raspberries in our freezer too! drool.
