#64 – The 11th Christmas Ripple

It’s always fun to gather a bunch of coordinating yarn scraps, the little bits and bobs that many would toss away, and design an afghan. It feels like you’re about to make Something out of Nothing!

There’s a little plain burgundy, some burgundy with gold and burgundy chenille, several whites, including some Sparkling, a plain variegated and a variegated with silver, plus many shades of red and green in. . .

A Berry Merry Christmas

Wow! Thankfully a child’s blanket will seldom be seen laying out flat like this. ‘Frenetic’* is the adjective that first came to my mind.

Frenetic is an appropriate description for far more than a busy blanket design as we get closer to Christmas. Have you been to a mall lately? ?

 

I hope you all find a time and place to appreciate the quieter more contemplative side of this special time of year. DH and I wish you and yours a Very Merry, yet non-frenetic, Christmas!!

You may think that because today is the day before Christmas Eve and I made Berry Merry from Christmas scraps that I’m all done showing you Christmas ripples, but you’d be wrong. I promise I’ll be finished before New Year’s Eve though.

* Frenetic – adjective – fast and energetic in a rather wild and uncontrolled way, “a frenetic pace of activity”

Synonyms: frantic, wild, frenzied, hectic, fraught, feverish, mad, manic, hyperactive, energetic, intense, fast and furious, turbulent, tumultuous!

    Yes, this is a little “frenetic”. But I like it!!! A child, I think, would find it very fun!
    We wish you both a very wonderful Merry Christmas. May we never forget it’s true meaning!!!

    The name Berry Merry is appropriate as the various reds look like mixed berries. No repeats. It’s like a ribbon candy bonanza in one afghan (sorry, I keep seeing Ribbon Candy).

    You are totally amazing! I always look forward to seeing your beautiful afghan designs.
