I started with a couple of the yarns from my big sister, 10 oz. of Sayelle ‘Chestnut Sunset’, the variegated and 8 oz. of ‘Chestnut’, a matching solid,
then added 4 oz. of Jack Frost ‘Rust’, 3 of RHSS ‘Buff’, (tan) and 5 of Wintuk ‘Fisherman’, (cream), vintage yarns all.
Having started with such generous amounts of the Sayelle ‘chestnuts’ I knew that I would have some yarn left, but I never expected there would be THIS much!
Turns out that, although the Sayelle isn’t an obviously thinner yarn, it gave more than the expected 3 1/2 rows per ounce. Guess it’s more softly spun than my good ole Red Heart Super Saver.
Anyway. . . this made for a nice summer-weight blanket,
perfect for the occasional cool summer night, like a couple of weeks ago when the temp here suddenly dipped to 48 degrees!
These colors are more dramatic than those of the bluffs we visited last month, but I’m still calling this week’s ripple. . .
as a kind of souvenir of time spent in the FingerLakes Region of New York.
‘Fiesta’, another variegated from Sis, has caught my eye.
Off I go to the attic; I wonder what yarns I have up there that complement this unusual color mixture.
