This is what 28 ounces of scrap balls looks like.
That’s sixteen ounces of various Peaches and twelve of Pinks.
Emily seems to think that the very orangest of the peaches smells far too Bright! lol.
I sometimes use either a Scrandom or Scrimple chart to help pre-plan a scrappy ripple’s stripes, but with all those scraps, plus some white, I knew that I had plenty of yarn, so decided to choose the color sequence as I worked.
My only “Pattern”, and I use that word very loosely, was to crochet a two-row stripe and then do anywhere from one to four single-row stripes, repeat.
Since I wanted the beginning and ending of my ripple to match I had to start off using a scrap ball large enough to make at least four rows – in my case, one that weighed at least one-and-a-half ounces – and then remember not to absentmindedly use the rest of it up before I got to the blanket’s final two-row stripe -or- I may have simply switched to a second slightly different shade of antique rose. ssssh.
Peaches and Raspberries*
Yeah, I know, Peaches and Raspberries = Peach Melba. . . but I already used that name. . . on Ripple #39 of 2012.
Also. . . interesting to see how similar this week’s ripple is to ‘Blushing Peaches’, #25 of 2012. I came across it when I checked for Peachy names on my earlier ripples.
