Very excited to find out how RHSS ‘Black Light’ will look in a ripple,

633 ST Black Light

I ‘cheated’, looking for ideas of how to best use it, by doing a project search within Ravelry. The majority show it used it alone or with black. There aren’t many blankets and most of them put ‘Black Light’ with RHSS ‘Glow Worm’, which is a NEON green, a color-combo too similar to that of the blanket I recently re-finished.

SO, for my ripple I ended up pulling out an old 16-ounce skein of RHSS Black, a skein of RHSS ‘Shocking Pink’, also from Sandi of MD,

633 ST vrgtds+PINK

and the remaining RHSS ‘Turqa’ from Lisa of TN.

Shaunna’s ‘crocheted zigzag skirt’ gave me the basic idea for my striping pattern,

677 BL-close-up

which took an entire five-ounce skein of the variegated and not only that sixteen-ounce skein of black, but another three ounces. That’s nineteen ounces of black! And yet it’s still pretty and feminine.

    Stunning, sure to please a teenage girl. The RHSS looks so different in the skein but beautiful with the black and bright solids. I think so many people make a mistake and make a whole project with a variegated opposed to am accent. I am still working on hats, made a few Minions.

    • Thank You! I’m very pleased with how this one turned out.
      And yes, I heartily agree about using variegateds judiciously. :S

      Minions – I hope you shared photos of them on your blog?
      We just watched “Despicable ME2”, Such Fun!!-

    Great idea to pick only two of the colors from the BlackLight. Just a few combinations from your idea….green and orange, green and yellow, or green and blue, green and pink. Yellow and orange, yellow and blue, yellow and pink… Boys, girls, either.
