When I went to the attic to look for an orange yarn that would work as the Op Art Granny’s border
I suddenly realized that my charity stash held an embarrassing amount of orange! It was clear that I should design a primarily orange ripple.
Pumpkins and Gourds. . .
took care of fifteen ounces of my Brightest Oranges, including an unlabeled 5 oz. skein of orange that came from yarn fairy Sandi of MD.
I noticed that Pop’n Yarn’s ‘Pop Out Yellow’, also from Sandi, is a little heavier than any of the oranges, so I paid close attention to just how many rows I got from an ounce of each yarn and then adjusted my stripe widths accordingly.
And I still have lots more orange yarn that I can play with. . . several cakes of an unknown lighter orange, a full skein of Simply Soft from Chrissy of TX, one skein of RHSS ‘Pumpkin’ and another that I think is probably ‘Brilliant Orange’, both from Sandi of MD. I’m sure that as fall approaches I’ll be able to think of more ripples that need orange. Autumn Leaves and Safety Cones (DH’s helpful idea) are the only ones that come to our feeble minds at the moment.
