this cute scarf.
When my newest ripple was ready for its photo shoot, I walked around our snow-covered yard looking for the best spot. There was too much shade next to the snow-blown path that heads round the east side of our house to the birdfeeders.
But it was fun to see all the cute birdie tracks where the trail starts to bend!
On the west side of the house there was plenty of sun, – As proof, that’s my shadow, at the bottom of the bottom of the photo. – but far too many Big Lumps of snow!
Ah HA!! – Next to the driveway. . . the perfect place, both flat AND in full sun.
I knew that my usual perch of an old wooden desk chair wouldn’t get me high enough off the ground to shoot photos of a blanket atop twenty-four inches of snow.
No, for this job I needed a far more specialized piece of photographic equipment. lol
Yikes! – the powdery snow really clings to the backside of a ripple. Fortunately, the weather has remained cold and dry since the last snowfall, so one quick shake was all it took to remove it.
I crocheted this blanket’s two-row stripes in the same order as those of the scarf.
The yarns I used: a purple chenille unraveled from a thrifty sweater, RHSS ‘Tea Leaf, plus the ‘Light Raspberry’ and ‘Turqua’ sent by Lisa of TN, and ‘White’ I Love This Yarn! from Chrissy of TX.
Thanks so much for your help, once again, kind Yarn Fairies!
