I apologize to those of you who’ve been patiently waiting for this week’s ripple post to appear. I blame the delay on the long holiday weekend.
If you’ve been an alottastitches reader for very long you’re probably able to guess who named this blanket. . .
Dusk in a Norwegian Wood.
That’s right, my helpful DH is waxing poetic, again. lol.
Although it would have been nice to have found more than a small scrap ball of pale pink yarn in my charity stash, I’m quite happy with how the more ample amounts of black, burgundy (some plain and some chenille) and Red Heart Super Saver’s ‘Light Raspberry’ look with this unique variegated yarn.
Unfortunately, it turned out that there wasn’t quite enough of the variegated, so I tried to duplicate its color sequence with solid-colored yarns for the afghan’s last ripple point. What a mess of yarn ends I then had to deal with!
Once I had woven them all in I was pleased to see that my ‘make-do’ technique had worked pretty well!
Depending on the light, the two segments of grey are a little lighter,
but I’m telling myself that a kid’s blanket isn’t likely to be laid out flat for ‘inspection’. Right?
Did I just hear a scattered chorus of readers answering “Right!!”? I sure hope so. lol.
