I’m so glad that it took me a few days to finish writing a post about this one, – thanks to my laptop’s sometimes disabled keys – cuz I really wasn’t crazy for it right when I finished the crocheting. And not just because I forgot to repeat the double-rows of cream on the other end either! – Talk about absent-minded. . . Can you believe I did that?!?!? –
A Scrappy* Ripple for a Scrappy** Boy
I think I was bothered by some of the grassy green yarns I used, which are much more lurid in real life than they seem here.
Whatever, I think it looks fine now and plan to quickly pass it off to DCF before I have the chance to change my mind. lol.
Reader Ann B. likes it better laying vertically.
She makes a good point! The asymmetry (missing stripes) isn’t nearly as bothersome when seen this way, like a blanket on a bed. Ann also mentioned that the stripes will come in “handy to differentiate the ends…Head/Foot. You know how stinky boys feet can be. ” YES, I do!! lol.
This blanket was a great opportunity to use up many green, red and blue scraps, as well as a few partial skeins of off-white.
* Scrappy – Consisting of scraps.
** Scrappy – Having a determined spirit.
Sideways view appears off balance with the three wide white strips. Then I turned my head to view as if on a bed (vertical/portrait) and I can appreciate the vision you had in/while creating it. Scrappy, yet still a beauty which a photo cannot convey. Good job!
Additionally, I reread your comments that you forgot the second set of double cream/white strips. Still, on a bed it will work….and handy to differentiate the ends…Head/Foot. You know how stinky boys feet can be.
YES, I do!!
And I don’t even want to think about having that smell anywhere near someone’s face. gasp.
Although most boys do seem immune.
Hmmm. Others, including me, might like to see it in vertical mode without having to crink our necks, lol. – Off to flip the photo on end. –
Thanks for the compliment, and such a good idea.
How did you know I turned my head to the left? Ha!
