I wanted to use this sunny yellow yarn in my next ripple.
I had eleven ounces in all, including the skein labeled Dawn Sayelle ‘Primrose‘, which I discovered is really quite pale compared to a real primrose. – Stop & Shop, $1.65.
Notice the nibbled edges on some of the leaves? Emily is determined to snack on it – mmmm, yummy, yummy, yummy!
My sunny yellow yarn was joined by two very similar blues, Herrschners ‘Indigo’ and RHSS ‘Delft’, and a teal chenille that I unraveled from a thrift store sweater, maybe this one, which I got for $2.00 back in 2012 – wince. Apparently I should ‘fluff’ my stash more often if such a pretty yarn can hide from me for that long!
I thought that I could use up all of the yellow, and be sure not to run out of blue, if I made five of the yellow stripes a little wider.
A Sunny Day
That idea worked out Great! This is all the primrosy yellow that I have left. . .
Well, I intended to show you the little tiny ball of remaining yarn, but I got distracted – “Ooooh, such a pretty, pretty yellow!” – and included it in a new project before I remembered that I was supposed to take a photo of it. oops!
I’ll show that work in progress in a few days. In the meantime, you can wonder what I’m crocheting out of these, littlest of pastel yarn scraps, too small to make even one row of a kid-sized ripple.
