It’s the same old story – I clipped a photo from a newspaper flyer and tucked it away for future inspiration. Man, oh man, these tiny slips of paper come in handy when my brain’s color-combo generator stalls out!
A few of the yarns I matched to the photo are RHSS Aruba, Royal, and Turqua, Caron One Pound White and a teal chenille that I unraveled from a thrift shop sweater a long time ago.
It was so windy on the day I wanted to shoot photos for this post that I imagined my blanket flying away like a kite! DH kindly cleared space for me in his woodshop over the garage. We thought the northern skylights would give a soft even light.
I was able to lay the carpet and ripple directly under a skylight. yay!
Hmmm, turns out that this color combo is quite similar to that of the second ripple of 2014, ‘An Arctic Chill’.
How did that happen? Guess I was so beguiled by that top, I forgot to check its colors against those of all my earlier ripples. Well, at least this latest ripple is differentiated a little by the random width striping.
What a coincidence if this blanket should someday meet its fraternal twin!
