When I made the Christmas Garland Ripple
using my single precious ball of Caron Christmas Glitter, I had no way of knowing that I was soon going to find this at Sal’s:
a four-ounce ball of Christmas red yarn with a fine strand of metallic gold for 99¢
and an entire blanket made of red, green and white variegated yarn for just $2.99!
Actually it’s more of a rug than a blanket. Very densely single-crocheted, it weighs Three Pounds, twice the weight of one of my slighter larger ripples. Three pounds of this variegated yarn can accent many Christmas ripples!
I wonder how many I can possibly crochet during these next few weeks? Though I’d rather not eat, drink and sleep Christmas ripples, if you know what I mean.
Then again, I suppose some of the variegated yarn could just wait until next Christmas.
But let’s not get ahead of ourselves. I have a rug/blanket to unravel before I can even begin.
Where are Santa’s elves when you need them?
