Let’s take a quick look at the first six Christmas Ripples of 2013, shall we?
What a festive holiday mix!
It looks to me like I hit a nice balance between dark and bright greens as well as with my use of burgundy and reds. And although I did put the plentiful red/green/white variegated in all but one ripple, I don’t think it overwhelms the collection so far. Good, good and Good!
I call my 7th Christmas Ripple. . .
That’s a lovely snapshot, but, unfortunately, not a very realistic one. Those stripes are actually Burgundy, not Red, but when DH pushed the color correction enough to get burgundy stripes everything else looked odd, so we left well enough alone.
Note to Self: Regardless of what these photos show, or hide, Burgundy looks GREAT with Bright Green! Must remember this HaPpY Christmas Combo for future Christmas ripples.
And since I’m complaining about my photos. . . the name I picked, ‘Christmas Dazzle’, would make far more sense if you could actually see the golden sparkle that’s in some of the ‘burgundy’ yarn. lol.
It showed up so well in Friday’s ripple close-up – sparkle, sparkle!
Yet is nearly invisible in today’s.
Hmmmmphf. My conclusion – The beauty of some ripples is easier to capture than that of others.
