#63 – My 10th Christmas Ripple

All of this year’s Christmas ripples have been delivered, but I still have photos to share of the last few. In the tenth I finally got around to using the Red Heart Sparkling white yarn that came in November’s large donation. Yay!

503 Sparkling

I had plenty of both it and a pile of very similar bright greens, so I didn’t have to figure out a complex striping pattern just to use up a partial skein of this color and a partial skein of that. Yay again! lol. At this point in the series anything ‘simple’ was sounding very good to me.

These simple stripes go 2 White – 1 Vrgtd. – 2 White. . .

then 2 Green – 1 Vrgtd. – 2 Green. So Easy and yet a Very Striking design!

My thanks to Ann B. for the name. It came from her comment on the gallery shot of Christmas ripples one through six , ” They look like a bowl of delicious ribbon candies. “

  1. TEN ripples? Do you ever sleep? They are beautiful and will be loved.

    • It’s not so much that I never sleep as it is that some days I do nothing but crochet! Luckily DH always goes along with my crazy schemes and is more than willing to pitch in. He knows our lives will return to ‘normal’ – Obviously I use that term loosely. lol. – once I’ve met whatever goal I’ve set for myself.

      Thank you. Yes, hopefully, the blankets will each be loved. But, if not, that’s o.k. too. I’ve come to terms with the thought that not every blanket I make is going to become a child’s ‘lovey-dovey blankie’. HAha.

    You are welcome and thank you for the honor.

    This reminds me to buy some ribbon candies so our grandsons can have that Christmas memory, too. But I’ll tie the two together by showing them the afghans you make for children who need a special hug.
