2012 Ripple #32 – Rainbow Rhythm

I wanted to make a fairly simple bold ripple that would effectively show off this pretty rainbow yarn. I think I succeeded!

11,554 stitches – 1,106,638 donated since Jan. 2011

Did you notice how the rainbow stripes vary in width even though they’re all single rows? It depends on whether you’re looking at the front or back of a row. They’re wider looking when seen from the back.

Sorry that I can’t tell you much about the yarns. Only one four-ounce skein of green had a label, Jack Frost ‘Kelly Green’. – You’ll be glad to know that it was both made and spun in the U.S. and is mothproof Dupont Wintuk Orlon Acrylic. Boy, that’s a mouthful! lol. – All the other partial skeins were bare.

Although a small ball of green is headed to the scrap box, I managed to get both the blue and rainbow yarns down to mini scrap balls. Less than a row’s worth remains in each. Yah!

    Love, love, love it!!!!! Green is my favorite color, so that’s what pops out the most to me!!! I love that varigated yarn! When I was pregnant with my son, I crocheted an afghan with that yarn, and my Uncle told me that it was so bright it was probably hurting the baby’s eyes!!! He’s such a stinker! Using the white really makes makes the afghan in my opinion. What do you do with the little balls of yarn? Just curious to see since you use all the yarn.

    Have a good day my friend!

    • It’s clear that you enjoyed this particular ripple Very Much! lol. It’s great when just seeing something brings up so many fun memories. Your uncle obviously didn’t know about the brightness of ‘Safety Orange’ yarn! I think rainbow pales in comparison. HAHa. Do you still have the afghan?

      I agree – the white makes the colors in the rainbow variegated really Pop!

      The last afghan I made from tiny scraps was Christmas in Grannies. I have another idea rolling around in my mind now. You’ll have to wait and see! πŸ™‚
