Ripple #33 of 2015

Although

Purple Mountains’ Majesty

688 PMM-full vew

does have a little less variegated than the troubled #31,

682-GRL-full view

– 19 rows, instead of 22 –

surely those 3 fewer rows can’t be the only reason why I like it so much more. . .

can it?

Comparing the two ripples, I notice

  • PMM (Purple Mountains’ Majesty) has an all-cool palette,
  • that its variegated yarn has no white and
  • that I used the same color – purple or white – before and after each of its variegated stripes.

All things to remember whenever I want a calm, well-balanced ripple.

And to think I did it with only five yarns!. . .

  • an unknown green/blue/purple/blue variegated
  • Wintuk ‘Medium Blue’ from Sandi of MD,
  • some RHSS ‘Spruce’ and ‘Lavender’ from my old stash,
  • and an anonymous white.

    Love it. Reminds me of an iris garden, too. Be sure to squint when looking at the photo. It really brings out it’s beauty as it will look on a bed.
