#9 – Indecision

I had a hard time deciding on a striping design for this week’s ripple. As you can see by my scribbled notes, what’s usually a quick rather intuitive process for me just went on. . . and on!

Sigh. All I wanted to do was show off an I Love This Yarn! variegated called ‘Retro Modern Ombre’, which Chrissy of TX sent me. IMHO, few variegated yarns look as good when used in multiple rows as in single rows, but this particular one looks lovely both ways!

I’m so glad that I persevered; I’m very happy with my final plan’s results.

You’ve probably heard of “snow angels”.  Maybe you’ve even made some. But have you ever seen a “snow ripple” before?  lol

    Beautiful, just beautiful. You do have a way with color.

  2. A snow ripple! How fun!

    Lots of pats on the back for you. RMO is another beauty! I agree with you on that single row of variegated. It looks so good! You did a great job showcasing it!

    I agree on the variegated. Two rows is my limit….so it retains its beading effect in a ripple afghan (rectangle or round). Beyond that, unless the project is not too wide and it will create a pattern, using only a variegated yarn looks messy to me.

    And who else has done ripples in the snow? Looks like a first to me. Ha!

  4. I really like this one.
