I’ve been looking forward to playing with this variegated yarn, RHSS ‘Salsa’, ever since I first laid eyes on it. What an interesting color combination!
I didn’t have an orange anywhere near Salsa’s orange and both of my browns are cooler than its brown, but RHSS ‘Coral’ and ‘Real Teal’ are both Fantastic color matches! I planned to use a full skein of each. . .
I headed up to the attic for my other skein of ‘Real Teal’, a partial one that I’d hoped to use with RHSS ‘Aruba Sea” in a future ripple. Oh well, I think JoAnn probably has some more ‘Real Teal’ that she would be glad to sell to me. lol.
After weighing the partial skein of teal to see how many rows of coral I could swap out (one ounce of RHSS = 3.33 rows in these little ripples), I rewrote my striping plan.
Yes, whine, ripping out five rows was painful, lol, but it was so worth it!! I think this is a much better-balanced design with enough spice to keep things interesting but not so much as to overwhelm. Ahhh.
Things are going to change again on the next repeat because I don’t have enough teal to make all its stripes two rows wide. Can’t wait to see how this is going to look!
